I believe an individual's difficulties are not always due to abnormal pathology, but can arise from normal reactions to abnormal situations. I work with my clients to develop a collaborative relationship in which the therapeutic space is one of thought and reflection so an effort can be made to go in the direction needed. I strive to understand the person before me from his or her own perspective based on who the individual is and the unique values, cultural beliefs, and stresses experienced on a daily basis. I have experience working with issues of blended families, divorce, sexual trauma, and sexuality.

I have a particular interest in working with individuals who live alternative lifestyles or are struggling with issues of pregnancy, new parenthood, or romantic and familial relationship difficulties. I work with Cstars, an agency, with an option for integrative care that includes psychological testing for children and adults. The evaluations include:

ADHD testing and medication referral, gender dysphoria and medical transition referral, court ordered mental health evaluation, and guardian ad litem evaluations. Cstars also conducts a substance recovery group and a women's sexual trauma therapy group for which I co-facilitate with Dr. Moore. I offer daytime and evening appointments during weekdays.

Anna M Parks's Groups

Women's Recovery Group

This group is for women who have experienced sexual victimization in early childhood, adolescence, or adulthood. All members are encouraged to be in individual therapy. This is a trauma-focused treatment process, using non-confrontive existential-humanistic counseling with 2 co-therapists. One female (Dr. Anna Parks) and one male (Dr. David Moore) therapist lead the 60-minute group. Many women had counseling or therapy without enough trauma focus to relieve anxiety and/or restore comfortable sexual activities. Group members are supportive without giving advice or interpreting others' personal history. Please feel free to contact CSTARS for further information.
