She providers both telehealth sessions as well as in-person therapy depending on her clients needs.
Anna has a particular passion for women’s mental health across the lifespan, and is certified in Perinatal Mental Health through Postpartum Support International.

Anna integrates Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Eye-Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) with mindfulness and narrative therapy. One of her goals is to remove barriers and stigma around mental health care. She sees emotional balance and self-understanding as integral to overall health and wellness.
