Anna has been wonderful to work with. She validates while challenging me in ways that other therapists have not. She is also very responsive to what I have said I need from therapy and finds ways to connect all the dots together. As a social work student it is wonderful to speak with someone who is personally familiar with my situation.

Existing Client

She made me feel comfortable right away, which isn’t the easiest thing to do. I was able to see things that I had closed myself off to for the longest. I truly appreciate all the support she’s provided. I feel like I’m much calmer now and much less anxious.
