She listens well and understands what I'm saying and doesn't make assumptions. She asks good thought-provoking questions and offers good insight while remaining open-minded. She also draws from some of her personal experiences, which is great, because she shares just the right amount of this so it's really helpful!

I absolutely love Anna she is smart, and really helps me put things into perspective, I highly recommend her. I love the most that she actually talks to me. Most therapist just listen and I am left wondering but she really get down to things when she asked questions or give me a different perspective.
