Anna’s passion is in helping people feel more connected, whether it is a relationship with self, relationship with spouse/partner, relationship with parent and child, and even relationship with substances. She practices under the belief that the quality of our relationships determines the quality of our lives, so she aims to rebuild trust, hope, and connection. Anna’s specialty is in holding a safe and compassionate space for you to be seen, heard, and understood—a space where you can tell, own, and even re-write your story as you find yourself again.
Before she found her calling as a counselor, Anna pursued art at Parsons The New School for Design in NYC. After years of her own soul-searching, she moved to Dallas and completed her undergraduate degree in Family Studies and Psychology at the University of North Texas. She went on to receive her Masters of Science in Counseling from Southern Methodist University. Anna interned at Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts as well as Momentous Institute to provide support and care to children and adolescents and their families.
Since then, her expertise has grown to include working with adults and couples who struggle with addiction, anxiety, boundaries, depression, divorce, co-parenting, marital, and life crises, and transitions. Anna has extensive training in trauma-informed care, and she is also a Trust-Based Relational Intervention Practitioner.
Her side passions include giving back to the mental health field by mentoring counseling students and providing training to other professionals and the community. When she’s not helping others, you can find Anna with her husband and their fur baby, Izzi, either exploring their city, gardening, or traveling in pursuit of good food and culture.
Anna works in the Oak Clif counseling office.
