A great listener. Also very thoughtful in her responses and overall input. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a therapist. I’m grateful to have been matched with someone who’s able to help me so much simply by listening and providing feedback. All the insight is much appreciated. There really is a ton of value in having someone to talk to that can look at your life objectively. Everyone should have someone they can go to, not only to listen but also to give some honest, unbiased input.

I've had the pleasure of working with Ann for 7 months now and I am so happy I found her. Ann listens attentively and always offers wonderful insight. She is extremely thorough when explaining things to me as well as sincerely empathetic. I have had sessions with her where I felt my most low and by the time my session was over, I felt comforted, heard and most of all understood that I am not alone. I always look forward to my sessions with Ann.
