Anne is dedicated to her work with couples, individuals, and families. She believes that new experiences shape new learnings: feeling heard by a partner; connecting to deep emotion; practicing new tools for improved communication. Anne creates a safe space where these kinds of new experiences can emerge and advance a client toward growth and change. This process of experience and reflection leads to greater self-awareness and, in turn, personal and relational healing.
Anne is attuned to your story. She listens, cares, and seeks to understand your identity, culture, and goals. Your goals guide the therapy process and your feedback is both important and valued as we work together to solve the meaningful problems in your life.
Anne believes therapy is a collaborative process and works from an integrative framework. This means she is trained in various therapy models and tailors strategies and tools based on your specific needs. Some of the models Anne frequently employs include Experiential Learning Theory, Attachment Theory, Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Psychodynamic approaches. Family Systems Theories are an integral part of Anne’s therapeutic approach; Marriage and Family therapists are uniquely trained to consider how the family structure within which a client is embedded may shape the client’s intrapsychic and interpersonal functioning. Anne’s interest in a systemic perspective led her to author the “Family of Origin” entry in the Encyclopedia of Couple and Family Therapy (Springer, 2019).
Anne is a pre-clinical member of the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy (AAMFT). Anne is a certified PREPARE/ENRICH Facilitator.
