Anna is very knowledgeable in various therapy needs and is very professional. She listens to my concerns and addresses my needs in the best ways to help me succeed in my goals. She’s very prompt and clear in her responses/communications. I would recommend her expertise to anyone that is seeking help and guidance with various issues.

Anna is super patient, gives great insight and focuses on exactly what I need to work on and let's me know the best way to deal with situations in my life. She is also super caring and checks on me in-between sessions just to make sure all is ok. I highly recommend her. She is amazing by far and very professional!

With it being my first time in therapy she makes it so easy. She listens and helps direct me to exercises that might help and she’s help me figure out things going on in my daily life. I honestly couldn’t imagine a better therapist
