It takes such strength and bravery to start the process of counseling and I am so glad you have chosen to stop by and learn more about how I might be a partner for you in this process. I work with individuals using Cognitive-Behavioral and Solution-Focused approaches, meaning I work to help my clients identify unhelpful patterns in their thoughts and behaviors, create relevant goals to change those unhelpful patterns, and identify realistic steps to meet those goals.
I am a National Certified Counselor (NCC), registered Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC), and a Licensed K-12 School Counselor in North Carolina. I have worked with students ages 6-18 for over 10 years in a variety of settings (academic, private practice, community, and church) and have a great deal of knowledge in regards to adolescent identity development, relational conflict, depression, anxiety, self-harm, suicide, grief and loss, family conflict, emotional regulation and expression, as well as helping teens build skills such as organization, study skills, and time management. I care deeply about my work as a counselor and highly value the adolescents I have the privilege to work with. I truly feel called to this work and strive to help every client I see to figure out their best path. I see every teenager as a whole person, not defined by their past or present choices and struggles, and work wholeheartedly to provide a safe space for them to be themselves as they explore their next best steps for moving toward adulthood.
Whatever your age, circumstance, background, or struggle, I want you to feel welcomed and at home in your session. It is my ultimate goal to help you achieve the goals you have set for yourself and live a happy and healthy life.

I really have found the sessions very useful for my teen and I. We've managed to put into practice healthier communication tools. I appreciate that Anna is passionate and knowledgeable.
