About me

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the states of Colorado and New Mexico. I specialize in grief, loss and life transition counseling. I have worked in acute care hospital settings, plus palliative and hospice care organizations for many years helping families and individuals at pivotal points in their life. I have a special interest and experience in older adults as they face difficult challenges and decisions regarding advanced care planning, and downsizing. Often people face isolation, loss of independence and increased independence on others, all at the same time. I understand these life transitions can happen in a moment, and are often paired with a traumatic life event.

I start by learning your story, in your words, at your pace. Curiosity leads the conversation and often results in feeling heard and seen as you truly are, not as you think others expect you to be. Through greater understanding of ourselves and what motivates us, we can often find new or renewed interest and joy in our life.

It takes courage to acknowledge the range of feelings that accompany loss, grief and life transitions. Feelings of overwhelm can mix with feeling dull and unable to find joy in our lives. I understand these feeling first hand and know the value of seeking help with moving through uncomfortable, painful times in our lives. I look forward to hearing your story and helping you as you work through difficult, sad or confusing times in your life.

The very best

Written on Dec 13, 2023 after therapy with Anne for 6 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, self esteem, career difficulties, bipolar disorder, and coping with life changes

Talking with Anne has been a very positive experience. She is great at listening and not over taking the conversation. Her insights are really helpful and I always feel that my feelings/thoughts are validated. She is always considerate about my comfortability level when discussing topics and I appreciate that so much.
