About Me

Welcome! And congratulations on taking the first step towards new solutions in your life. Therapy is a place for you to explore and learn about yourself in a way that is right for you. I provide a safe, supportive and encouraging environment in which all my clients can improve self-understanding, solve problems, heal, grow and change.

I am a Client-Centered therapist who draws on other complementary evidence-based approaches to address a wide range of issues, including the common challenges of anxiety, depression, anger, and self-esteem. I believe in the healing power that lies within individuals and their ability to draw on their own expertise and knowledge of themselves to change and grow in positive ways. Your therapy is about you and my role is to work in a collaborative therapeutic relationship with you to achieve your goals.

I specialize in working with young people between the ages of 18-26; women who are searching for more independence, personal growth, empowerment and self-compassion in their lives; and clients who identify as LGBQT. However, I enjoy working with people of all ages and backgrounds who are seeking help in addressing a wide range of issues, including (but not limited to!) self-esteem, depression, anxiety, grief, major life changes, and career exploration. I draw from a variety of theoretical approaches offering a personalized approach tailored to meet the specific, unique needs of each person.

I received my counseling training at Argosy University, Washington, DC campus with a Masters degree in Community Counseling. My clinical training included working with children, adolescents, and families as well as providing counseling to clients dealing with substance abuse.

Written by Q.. on Mar 02, 2018 after counseling with Anne for 1 month on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, lgbt, trauma and abuse, self esteem, anger, and career

Anne has been amazing. She's available and responsive while being incredibly flexible with my chaotic schedule. More than that though, she listens, she gets it (and always makes sure that she's getting it), and she sends me helpful links and suggestions regularly. I don't think I've ever had a better therapy experience, and that's saying something, because I've been in therapy on and off since I was a young child. Anne has already helped me reassess some of my assumptions and perspectives while reaffirming my emotions and helping me to understand and embrace both my instincts and my true self. I feel very lucky to have found her, and I would definitely recommend her (and BetterHelp) - especially to anyone with a hectic schedule.

Anne is amazing. She really understands me mentally and emotionally. I feel supported and confident in what I want to do in order to be happier. Thank you so much.

She’s so professional and explains in detail what actions we are going to take. She makes me feel welcomed, allowing me to share anything I want.
