Welcome! Here is a little about me and how I plan to support you:
I have a master’s degree in Counseling from Rhode Island College (2002) and am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in RI. I began my professional career working in substance abuse, a Methadone Clinic. I have also worked in a correctional facility with sex offenders, as well as with incarcerated juveniles that had a variety of charges, which was extremely rewarding to see the teens grow and change their lives for the better. Through this work, I achieved Sexual Abuse Specialist Certification via the state, DCYF. I then worked for an agency that provided in-home therapy services to families struggling with a range of difficulties, from parental separation, spectrum diagnosis, behavioral issues, and mental health concerns. I started my private practice in 2010 and that has been my focus since that time. My experience in private practice has continues servicing sex offenders, those impacted by sexual abuse (victims/survivors, and their loved ones), couples counseling, family counseling, and parent counseling.
My style begins with identifying the goals of the client and what works best for them. That is, some benefit from more of a focus on behavioral/concrete interventions, while others prefer talk therapy. This could also change throughout the process of therapy, which flexibility throughout the process is a key due to change occurring. It's important that you know that this process is about yourself, your goals and your future, so it is driven by you. My aim is to help you achieve the growth you are looking for.

Anne has really been a great help to me and really listens to what I have to say. She is very rational and puts things in a way that are easy to understand and methodical. I really enjoy working with her.
Great counselor! Down to earth and gets it!
I have always been scared of therapy, but Anne has made me realize that it’s not someone telling you what you do wrong or how messed up you are, but it’s someone helping you see the good and helping you understand why you do the things you do. It’s helped me to calm my mind down and it’s given me a sense of calm knowing I have someone who helps make sense of all that goes on in my head. It’s a blessing.
Anne has truly been wonderful especially when it came for me trying to use counseling again after a few failed takes in my past. My life’s stress and my feelings just started to get the best of me and I was grateful to find better help and Anne. Anne was able to give me just the right tools and questions for me to really start looking better at myself. I feel like I am starting to I know myself again and what I need to do to make myself in a better state of mind. I am excited to see what is ahead.
She’s great! I went through a couple before I found her. I think she just understands how I think
I have only met with Anne once, but she has been fantastic so far. Totally put me at ease and started me on my path to becoming who I want to be.
so far so good. I have re-elected counselors three times and when we started, i immediately felt comfortable. This is a great platform for my lifestyle whether or not COVID was involved. Highly recommend it!
Anne is smart and has reliant advice. She listens and responds with perspectives that I wouldn't have considered on my own.
Anne's the best and I am grateful to have met her. Very encouraging, and offers great insight/counsel.
Anne has been very helpful.
Anne has been really nice and understanding. I haven’t had a lot of sessions with her but I already feel like she is helping me.
So far... I’m very pleased. Anne is very easy to talk to.
Anne has been great!
I have participated in counseling before, and I have seen more success with Anne in a few weeks than in months with face to face in person counseling from other counselors. She is a blessing in my life and truly life changing and I look forward to continue with receiving help and care from Anne.
Anne is very caring and understanding. She gives a variety of ways to help and responds in a timely manner. She has been there for me with all my problems thus far and I feel comfortable talking to her
