About Me

Welcome! I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in the state of New Jersey and a National Certified Counselor (NCC). My commitment to wellness and personal growth was born out of a desire to help others heal. I have experience that is wide-ranging and across a variety of settings, as I have provided individual, group, and family therapy at a community mental health agency, in in-home settings, as well as in private practice. I obtained my first Master’s degree, in clinical mental health counseling, in 2015 and my second Master’s degree, in criminal justice, in 2016. I also have a postbaccalaureate in clinical psychology, which I completed in 2019, and I am currently pursuing my Ph.D. to become a clinical psychologist.

Counseling can help to provide you with the tools necessary to manage challenging situations in life and to help you explore thoughts and feelings to reach a clearer understanding and empowerment. I feel it is important to meet the client where they are at and I find joy in helping clients discover their best selves. I have worked with clients who experienced issues related to anxiety, depression, relationship problems, parenting-related concerns, family stress, or past unresolved conflicts. Together, we will work to identify and overcome obstacles, which are preventing you from living life to your fullest potential.

I utilize Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Person-Centered Therapy approaches with my clients. I believe that it is important to focus on strengths and abilities as well as to explore thoughts, feelings, and behaviors to alleviate stress and improve mood. Taking the first step might not be easy, but I am here to support you. It would be my honor to work with you on your path towards healing.

Reviews

Written by S.H. on Jun 29, 2020 after counseling with Anna for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, sleeping disorders, and self esteem

She is an amazing listener, takes what you say seriously, makes you feel respected and NEVER judged. Always supportive, and solution-oriented. I’ve only had a few sessions with Anna but I am excited for more!
