Welcome! I admire your courage in seeking help for the challenges you’re facing right now. I am a licensed professional counselor with nearly 20 years of experience working with individuals, couples, and families. I hold a master's degree in counseling from Longwood University in Virginia. My specialties are anxiety, depression, and relationship issues. Clients come to me seeking relief and, as we get to know each other, I actively help them better understand their symptoms and learn ways to improve their lives and relationships with others. I love the work I do and I firmly believe that everyone has in them the ability to grow and change to achieve the life they imagine for themselves.
If you are overwhelmed with stress, anxiety, or depression that negatively affects the way you live, work, and relate to others, I can help. If you are concerned about your relationship with your spouse or significant other, even if they are not interested in getting counseling, I can help. If you are a parent struggling to understand your teen as they transition to adulthood, I can help. I use a variety of approaches based in family systems theory, cognitive-behavioral therapy, solution focused therapy and mindfulness. I may challenge you with assignments to raise awareness of negative patterns and opportunities to practice new, healthier ways of living and relating to others. Once we identify what you’d like to get out of the counseling process, we can then identify specific strategies to help you meet those goals. I provide a safe, non judgmental, supportive space for you to share openly as you implement these strategies and make the changes you desire to achieve a happier, more fulfilling life. I look forward to working with you!

Anne is a thoughtful counselor who provides a safe space, discerning feedback, thought-provoking reflective opportunities, and solution-oriented tools to support both the healing of long-term traumas and pragmatic ways to process the "everydayness" of life. She does this all with authenticity and a lightness that makes engaging in difficult reflection and recognizing areas of growth and the continued need for healing somehow less burdensome. I feel a strong sense of gratitude for having her in my life, for her listening ear, and the way she brings my attention to my less glamorous qualities without making me feel like I can't overcome these trends or characteristics. She is a true blessing!
Anne- has been a godsend. I was in a really bad place when we started working together back in September and she has really helped me move into the right direction. She is very understanding, honest, and never judgemental!
Anne is absolutely fantastic! She has already given me some tools to help me deal with my anxiety. She really understands and hears me. I am looking forward to working with her more!
Anne has been an unbiased, great listener and knows what she’s talking about. Her suggestions are nothing short of perfection.
Anne is lovely, warm and approachable counselor. She is able to coax out the things that matter to me and gives me realistic practical tasks to help my progress. Most importantly we laugh a lot. I've had therapy a few times before but it was never this much fun!
Anne has been very proactive in taking real steps with me on my mental health and well-being. With Anne's help, I have been learning to hold myself accountable for my actions and behaviors, which is something I was not doing so well before meeting her.
