About Anna

A trusted partner to listen, understand, and accept

I understand what you are feeling because I have worked through it myself. Early on, it was hard because I didn’t want anyone to know how badly I was doing. Only I knew things were falling apart on the inside. Eventually, through counseling, I was able to find someone who understood, listened, accepted and supported me. You’re reading this because you are looking for this very thing and it is available to you right here.

  • You deserve to be listened to without being told your feelings are wrong.
  • You are worthwhile and valuable, even though you might not realize it yet.
  • You feel strung out because you don’t have enough support, not because there is something wrong with you.
  • You don’t have to neglect your own needs to be loved.
  • You can have relationships where you give, but also receive.
Being listened to and treated with kindness changed my world and I know it could change yours too. That’s why I started the Feel Better Group.

What therapy with me is like

First and foremost, therapy is a place you will be listened to. Lots of questions will be asked and there will be all the time and space you need to think through your thoughts and feelings. Your pace and style set the tone. If there are things you don’t see, patterns that are causing some of the pain you hope to resolve, you have access to that wisdom. You are invited to give feedback about what works and what doesn’t and the therapy will be adjusted uniquely to you. You will do the work you need to do and have a fully-engaged, attentive, kind partner to support you.
