General Counseling


Anxiety affects us all on some level periodically, but with counseling, you can understand, unravel, and transform anxiety and learn self-soothing techniques to use if anxiety flares up again.


Counseling helps you view a depressive state with curiosity and without judgment, teaches mindfulness-based practices to help you recognize and access your strength, autonomy, and capacity for change.

Relationship Process

Common relationship concerns include financial difficulties, barriers to communication, routine conflict, emotional distance and lack of trust. Therapy will help with any of these relationship issues.

Crisis Counseling

Whether mid-life issues or loss, therapy will help you address the physical, emotional and spiritual effects associated and help you use self-awareness and compassion techniques to rebalance with life.

It is with gratitude that I share my thoughts. Anna has been a source of comfort, insight and wisdom during a transitional time in my life. Anna’s approach is very straight forward. She listens, asks thoughtful questions, but will also offer her observations.She has inspired me to sit with my emotions, set boundaries and speak my truth. Hallelujah! I have sent my many friends and family members to her cottage knowing they, too, would find peace. And they did. Anna is a treasured blessing in my life.

Client- 2 Years

Anna is a gifted, loving, spiritual soul. It has been my blessing to have found her at this part of my journey. She listens, and provides guidance without judgment. Anna is open and as such, has opened my mind to new ways of thinking, all while feeling her genuine, authentic nature surrounding you with love and kindness. How could one not grow and feel “OK” in her presence? She has truly provided me with a gift of believing that maybe, just maybe I am ok.
