therapy

Many people come to therapy wondering if their experiences are "normal." While it can be reassuring to know you are not alone, it can be still more liberating to choose your own path. Together, we'll explore whether the experiences you are having are bothering you and if so, what you prefer.  We may also wonder about what is precious and important in your life, and how your problems may have pushed you far from the things you hold dear.

My passion, background, and training include working with new parents, those navigating gender and sexuality, and those who have experienced trauma, particularly domestic and sexual violence. I work with adults and adolescents. I have deep appreciation for people at the margins and intersections of life, and promise to honor your truth and your identity in every way that I can.

 

supervision

I am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker and an active and engaged supervisor. I love sitting with new therapists as they deepen and strengthen their therapeutic work. You can also count on me to help you contextualize dilemmas in their social and cultural contexts.

I am particularly qualified to consult on matters related to narrative therapy approaches, new parenthood and perinatal issues, LGBTQ issues including gender confirmation processes, and adolescent mental health.

I am open to supervising groups as well as individuals.

 
"Working with Anna has been one of the most influential experiences in my professional development. Her values-based approach helps me stay grounded in my preferred therapeutic stance, which might otherwise get lost in my day-to-day work. Anna offers space for reflection and gently cultivates opportunities for growth. Her practice is always thoughtful, respectful, and collaborative."  —Supervisee

 

After the birth of my daughter, I was diagnosed with postpartum anxiety. I had a hard time finding anyone who really got what I was feeling. No one could listen and respond in a way that made me feel less alone, until Anna. She came to my house when I was overwhelmed by the thought of going to an office with my new baby. She took notes, remembered what we discussed from visit to visit, and sent me information about postpartum anxiety. I needed a lot of support to get through my anxiety and, aside from my husband, Anna was the number one person who helped me get to the other side.
