Anna is an open-minded practitioner who believes in the healing power of psychotherapy and growth through reflection. They came to the field to learn more about how humans can heal themselves through the discussion of feelings and needs, and, if the client is interested, incorporating creative interventions while on their journey of self-discovery. Their approach is person-centered, integrating psychodynamic practices with mindfulness and body-conscious interventions such as CBT and DBT, and if desired guiding clients through meaningful artmaking experiences.
They have worked at special education schools with children and adolescents on the autism spectrum and provided individual and group sessions for adults dealing with depression and anxiety. They also have experience working with the LGBTQ+ community and are skilled at offering support to affirm their identities, explore their behaviors, and achieve personal goals without fear or judgment in a safe space created together. Anna has a Master's Degree in Art Therapy from New York University with an emphasis on trauma work.
