About Anna

Find a place inside where there's joy, and the joy will burn out the pain. - Joseph Campbell

I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor, Certified Clinical Mental Health Counselor, Certified Clinical Trauma Specialist for Individuals, Member of the American Counseling Association, and Certified Comprehensive Behavioral Intervention for Tics (CBIT) Therapist.

Anna holds a Master of Arts in Counseling from MidAmerica Nazarene University and has been working in the counseling field professionally since 2014.

I have a passion for helping children and adults struggling with anxiety, depression, trauma, identity and self-esteem issues, autism, and adjustments to life transitions. I use a variety of techniques in my counseling work pulling from Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT), Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT), Solution Focused Therapy, Narrative Therapy, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. I will utilize a variety of interventions throughout our time together to meet your needs and strive to help you live in an integrated and congruent way in alignment with your morals and values.

I work with individuals and families and view counseling as a team effort. I will work with you to reach your goals. I believe that every person can live a full and integrated life where their hearts match what their minds believe to be true and their minds are in alignment with their heart.
