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!

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!

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 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 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.

Anna is wonderful to work with. I really appreciate how she takes the time to get to know you individually and remembers details that you share with her. I sought out help with relationship troubles and she has plenty of experience in that area. She balances listening intently and offering applicable advice extremely well. Anna is very calming to talk with and I highly recommend her!

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.
