About My Clients
Clients are drawn to my specialty in burnout prevention because they know that I interpret 'burnout' across professional life, romantic relationships, sense of self, and this thing we call "the meaning of life." I am most known for my willingness to sit with painful moments to help you find underlying motivation and joy. My specialties are not limited to: overcoming past hurts, building practical self-care rituals, making meaning in a chaotic world, and crafting a fully embodied life.
My Background and Approach
I am a relationships and burnout prevention specialist with a nonjudgmental and mindfulness-based approach. I offer my clients a warm and trusting therapeutic relationship to overcome life's greatest challenges. My counseling methods are grounded in research and therapy best practices (such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, nonjudgmental mindfulness meditation, and relationship research). I draw from 20 years of experience in helping professions assisting others in their own self-care and burnout prevention planning. All of my work is grounded in the belief that we each have infinite capacity for growth, change, and connection. What do you plan to do with your potential? ***Want to learn more about my approach?

My Personal Beliefs and Interests
Hi there, I know that I am extremely lucky to be in the profession that I am. I get to see individuals and couples make tremendous changes in their lives -- in spite of past hardship or adversity. Personally, I am drawn to the counseling profession because I believe wholeheartedly in the individual's capacity to grow and change. I consider it a privilege to help facilitate this process in my work as a therapist. I bring my authentic self to my work (including a sense of humor) and invite my clients to do so as well. I am inspired on a daily basis by the resilience of humanity and capacity for joy. Seeing these moments of inspiration has sustained me in this work throughout my career -- It is a true honor. Meeting each individual is an opportunity for me to learn more about the resilience of the human spirit. Tell me: What's YOUR story? Warmly, Anna
