Get to know Ann

Originally, a Louisiana native, raised in Bossier City, Ann lived in California for 30 years and returned in 2022 with her California-native husband in tow. She graduated University of California, San Diego, with a degree in Literatures in English, then worked for almost ten years as a paralegal in family law. 

Seeing the challenges that arise for children and adolescents during the upheaval of divorce, she felt called to help others enduring the struggle and began her graduate training in Clinical Mental Health Counseling with an emphasis in Marriage and Family Therapy. Life is overwhelming, not only in times of transition but in trying to move beyond the ruts in which we sometimes find ourselves. Ann’s goal is to help individuals, couples, and families find balance and harmony by building self-awareness, creating healthier and effective behaviors, and cultivating joy. She believes in the importance of the mind-body-spirit connection to create inner peace while letting go of stress. 

Ann enjoys working with people of all ages, especially teenagers. Her therapeutic approach includes an individually tailored approach using Solution-Focused Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Emotionally Focused Therapy that begins with your unique goals and needs in mind.

Ann and her husband have two grown children and five grandchildren who do not live close enough to them, but they love being at home in the south with good food, friends, and extended family.
