I am a licensed marriage and family therapist in the state of California with over 8 years experience working in both a private practice and a community mental health setting. I have worked with a wide variety of clients with issues ranging from ADHD, PTSD, depression anxiety and personality disorders. I have also helped children and families cope with domestic and sexual abuse as well as parenting difficulties. The greatest athletes have coaches that help them to overcome little challenges that are holding them back from greatness and therapy works similarly. As your therapist, I will accompany you on your journey to provide you the support and resources you either know you need help with or that are revealed by our work together. Focusing on results can be important, but success can be just as much about the journey as the destination. Therefore I seek to accompany my clients for as long as they need me to, with dedication and unconditional positive regard. I am trained in a variety of treatment modalities including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Family Systems, Humanistic Existential and Dialectic Behavioral Therapy, however I consider myself and eclectic therapist who uses a combination of treatment techniques to best meet my client's needs.

Anna Major was supportive, helpful, and relatable. I appreciated her support though one of my most difficult life transitions.
Written on Aug 10, 2021 after therapy with Anna for 4 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, and career difficulties
I've been in and out of therapy for over 12 years and have never had the connection or help like I had with Anna. I was with her for 2 years and was able to finally work through a lot of my trauma and finally get to a point where life is brighter and I can handle situations which were previously triggering for me. She helped me get to a point in 2 years where I no longer need therapy. I cannot say thank you enough to her for doing something in 2 years that multiple other therapists couldn't do in my 12+ years. Thank you so much for helping me be able to enjoy life finally.

I am not new to therapy; I have been it off-and-on since I was 9. With 30 plus + years experience, I can unequivocally say that Anna Major has been my most positive experience. She understands my issues, goals and boundaries. She seems to intuit when I need her just to hear me and when I need her to push me forward. She is wonderful, compassionate and smart.

I completely love Anna. She hears me, understands me, and really helps me. She takes the time to walk through things with me and I can feel her genuine care and effort into helping me. She helps me understand things and give different perspectives. And has the best ability to make me feel calm and so much better about life after our session. I can’t recommend her enough. She’s the best

Anna is the best thing that has ever happened to me, I wish I wouldn’t have waited so long to reach out for help. It’s an amazing feeling having someone to trust and open up too.
