Hello, I am Anna. "One step at a time and there is no mountain." This insightful quote perfectly captures the essence of my approach as a dedicated and licensed LMSW. With a deep passion for providing comprehensive support services, I am here to guide you through your therapeutic journey, one step at a time.
Throughout my career, I have had the privilege of working in diverse practice settings, including home-based, telehealth, institutional offices, substance abuse treatment centers, schools, senior centers, and crisis centers. These experiences have shaped me into a versatile and compassionate therapist with a deep understanding of various mental health challenges.
One area where my passion truly shines is in infertility counseling, where I support individuals and couples navigating the emotional complexities of fertility struggles. I am committed to creating a safe and empathetic space where individuals and couples can explore their feelings, process grief, and find strength and resilience during this challenging journey. I provide guidance, coping strategies, and support as you navigate the unique challenges of infertility.
Additionally, I specialize in couples counseling, where I help couples build strong and fulfilling relationships. I believe that open communication, mutual understanding, and healthy dynamics are the foundation of a successful partnership. I work collaboratively with couples to address issues, improve communication skills, foster intimacy, and overcome challenges. Together, we can navigate relationship dynamics and create a stronger bond.
Moreover, I offer parent coaching with a focus on teaching applied behavior analysis (ABA) techniques. As a parent coach, I assist parents in understanding behavior patterns, implementing effective discipline strategies, and fostering healthy development in their children. With years of experience in applied behavior analysis, I provide practical tools and guidance to help parents navigate parenting challenges and promote positive behaviors.
n addition to my expertise in infertility counseling, couples therapy, and parent coaching, I am skilled in supporting individuals dealing with anxiety, depression, trauma, and other mental health concerns. Using evidence-based approaches such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and trauma-informed techniques, I empower individuals to regain control over their lives, nurture resilience, and experience personal growth.
With my clinical proficiency, empathy, and a deep understanding of individuals, couples, and families, I am committed to fostering growth and facilitating positive change. I provide a supportive and secure environment where clients can address their concerns, overcome barriers, and achieve their therapeutic goals.
Taking the first step towards seeking support is a significant decision, and I am honored to be a part of your journey. Thank you for considering me as your therapist. I eagerly anticipate the opportunity to collaborate with you, utilizing my expertise and passion to help you conquer mountains and achieve transformative outcomes.
Thank you once again, and I look forward to meeting you soon.
