    Are you struggling with feeling overwhelmed? Do you find it difficult to enjoy life? Maybe you feel sad or down but can’t quite figure out why? Have you ever wondered “How did I get here?” Are your relationships everything you don’t want them to be? These struggles are common and Anna can help! Anna walks alongside people who deal with low self-esteem, insecurities, depression, anxiety, trauma and other mental health challenges. She uses a variety of techniques to help her clients identify and challenge automatic negative thoughts, irrational beliefs and unhealthy relationship patterns.

    Anna works with teens and adults using a non-judgmental and collaborative approach. During your first session, Anna will create a safe place to explore what is holding you back from a healthy mind, body, and relationships. Then, together, you will develop a plan to help you move forward to a healthier, more confident you.

    Anna believes people are capable making changes that will affect their thoughts and behaviors -and it starts in the brain. “The brain is a powerful organ that we are just beginning to understand. It controls so much of our lives, yet we spend very little time paying attention to it and caring for it. With some work and focus, we can create new ways of thinking leading to new ways of behaving.”

    Anna’s approach is also holistic. This means that if symptoms do not improve, she may recommend visiting your primary care physician for a full check-up or a psychiatrist to learn more about medication options. Medication is not always the answer, so Anna recommends starting with counseling. Through counseling you will learn coping strategies to manage symptoms.

    Anna sees clients at our Plano location. She is outgoing, optimistic, and hopeful. She believes that while our past plays a role in who and where we are in the present, it does not have to define the future.

    Anna is a transplant to Texas. She graduated from the University of Maryland with an MS in Social Work. She also holds a MM in in Christian Counseling Psychology.
