About Me

I enjoy helping teens who want to succeed. I like to assist both parents and teens to be flexible in (Covid) learning platform by assisting in scheduling their day and daily tasks.
My experience is able to help guide parents and teens to talk to each other Openly, Kindly, and Respectfully.
I have worked with incarcerated youth and parents and these experiences bring their own unique set of challenges. I will listen and provide encouragement. This is a no-judgment zone, a safe place to talk about what worries you, what the school day brings, and what concerns you may have facing the future. I can help you set healthy goals and boundaries for yourself. I have experience in dealing with cultural challenges facing you transitioning from school to home life.

Written by C.H. on Aug 27, 2021 after counseling with Anna for 2 weeks on issues concerning relationship

My husband and I have had only one video session with Anna but I feel very comfortable taking to her. She has given both of us some insight, advice and suggestions concerning our situation. Anna seems optimistic about us getting back together.

Anna has been awesome ,a good listener and responder to my situation. Very good advice and she’s there when I have questions or need to get something out .

Before even having a session, the Anna told us to switch and that she isn’t the right counselor for my daughter. I am not sure how that could be determined without having a session.

Anna has made my transition back into therapy so pleasant and easy! She listens to what I have to say and provides effective exercises to help calm my anxiety and work through some of my stressors. She pays attention to detail and makes therapy fun! I appreciate her so much!

Anna is absolutely the best. Warm, kind, and compassionate. She brings humor and a real sense of caring to every session— she listens and helps me to understand and explore why I feel the way I do and what steps I can take to steady myself. She has given me language to discuss the feelings I have and has empowered me to find solutions to some of the challenges I’m facing. So grateful to have Anna in my corner!
