About me

Hello! My name is Anna, and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with over ten years of experience providing therapy services. I work with clients affected by depression, anxiety, relationship challenges, life transition, mood and emotional distress. I have specialized training in working with couples, highly sensitive persons (HSP) and introverted personality styles.

I received my master’s degree in counseling and completed post graduate studies in mental health counseling.

The teen years are some of the most awesome ones we experience. It's a time a learning, growing and experiencing life. It can also be some of the most challenging as you try to figure out who you are are and make sense of the world around you. I can a support system for you as you navigate.

On a personal note, I enjoy playing piano and guitar. I am backpacker, kayaker and SUPboarder.

Contact me if you would like to work together.

Anna is warm, caring and very friendly. I immediately felt comfortable talking to her; she is someone who will listen, and try and dig a little deeper to help you arrange your thoughts and figure out a solution. She regularly checks in with me. I look forward to our sessions.
