Written on Apr 21, 2021 after therapy with Anna for 2 years on issues concerning depression, and stress, anxiety

Anna is incredible and definitely sets a high bar for the Counselors/Therapists on this platform. I’ve been with Anna for almost 2 years now and she’s helped me through some pretty challenging times and situations. I highly recommend Anna!

Written on Apr 06, 2021 after therapy with Anna for 2 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, self esteem, and coping with life changes

Anna has been super helpful as I navigate through a life transition (plus a pandemic). She’s helped me gain clarity in just a few months. Very grateful!

Written on Sep 28, 2020 after therapy with Anna for 4 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, coping with life changes, and compassion fatigue

Anna is an amazing therapist! I feel very heard and supported and I’ve noticed a huge change in my life since starting to work with her. I wish I could recommend her to literally everyone!

Written on Jun 03, 2020 after therapy with Anna for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, and intimacy-related issues

Anna has been great so far. I understand that she is very busy with all her clients but I can almost always expect her to reach out within 24 hours. She has also checked in when I haven't reached out which makes me feel good too.

Written on Apr 21, 2020 after therapy with Anna for 8 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, and relationship issues

Anna is the best therapist I have ever worked with. Kind and empathetic, she makes you feel understood while also pushing you to better your weaknesses and offering practical ways to do so.

Written on Feb 21, 2019 after therapy with Anna for 2 weeks on issues concerning family conflicts, and compassion fatigue

Anna has been nothing but supportive and understanding. I feel comfortable sharing my thoughts and experiences with her, and am therefore more confident going through my day knowing there is someone rooting for me!

Work with me!
