About me

I am a licensed clinical social worker with over 6 years of experience as a psychotherapist working with individuals, couples, and families. I have a client centered approach using a combination of mindfulness based cognitive behavioral therapy and dialectical behavioral therapy. I believe in working alongside clients to identify their needs and goals and empowering them to make the changes necessary to meet them.
I have worked primarily with mood disorders, grief and loss, chronic illness, parenting struggles, and infertility and individuals and couples trying to conceive.

I have a warm, compassionate style and believe in the importance of emotional attunement and rapport in building a therapeutic relationship.
It can be incredibly difficult to verbalize a need for help and creating a space that feels safe and hopeful, is of the utmost important to me.

I look forward to working with you!

Anna is the best therapist I've had. She's thoughtful, kind and SO helpful. She makes you feel heard and works with you to find the best ways to take care of your mental health while still staying true to how you are. Anyone would be lucky to work with her!
