Licensed Professional Counselor

Therapy made simple.

Finding a new therapist can be intimidating. Your life is not working, and you could use some real help in reclaiming yourself. You’re aware that you are not in alignment with your creative potential, and you’re ready to deep-dive into what is keeping you stuck. You’re an out-of-the box kind of person, tired of trying to fit your round self into a square hole. You could use a therapist who “gets you” and can guide you to awareness/pursuit of what feels really good and right about your life. You’re open to intelligent and compassionate feedback from the right person, who is also your new therapist!

My specialty is working within a person-centered and ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Theory) framework; ACT is a multi-dimensional model of treatment, incorporating mindfulness, resolving limitations of the problem-solving mind in relationship to internal experiencing, and committing to changes that align with your deepest values, self-actualizing.

When you start listening to your naturally creative, aligned self, and begin caring for the person who you are at your core & always have been, you will feel more fulfilled! I welcome you into in my office, and look forward to partnering together in your healing. Please call or email me to schedule an appointment; I am presently accepting new clients.

Get To Know Ann

Hi, I’m Ann!  Nice to meet you here! 

I’m all about helping my clients find greater meaning, joy and direction in their lives.  It excites me to share ways that I have been helped, things that I have learned about the mind, things that I am currently learning about the mind, and practices that ground me and keep me clear about what I’m thinking and feeling.  My work is informed by theory, and tailored to meet your specific needs. Therapy is both an art and a science.  

Clients who are open to change, action-oriented, willing to be vulnerable, and receptive to new ideas will benefit by working with me.  I provide straight-forward feedback from a place of compassion and courage.  

I work with a wide range of clients from teenager to young adult and up.  Some of the areas that I have expertise in are:

 

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Stress management
  • Mood regulation
  • Self-esteem
  • Work/Life balance
  • Healthy lifestyle
  • Relationship issues
  • Parenting/ Co-Parenting
  • Grief/ Loss
  • Trauma
  • Life transitions
