Anna has worked extensively with individual adults, couples, and adolescents in psychotherapy, assessment, and consultation.
Philosophy: In her work as a therapist, Anna has come to believe that relationships are primary sources of both suffering and fulfillment. Our families, communities, and systems shape us, just as we influence those around us. Sometimes our relationships and experiences bring about stress, pain, and trauma that negatively influence our daily lives. Anna’s goal is to partner with her clients in alleviating suffering and fostering self-examination, meaning making, and change. She values the courage it takes to explore suffering with honesty and vulnerability. Anna seeks to make the therapy room a safe place for clients to engage with the joy, frustration, and messiness that result from efforts toward growth.
