Anne Appel, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, MA, LMFT, Marriage & Family Therapist in San Luis Obispo
Life has its challenges! Over the past 25 years its been my privilege to assist individuals, couples and families work through obstacles that have prevented them from experiencing meaningful and peaceful lives and relationships. My clients are coping with the everyday stress of marital and family concerns, parenting, aging, health issues, career and financial challenges, loss or other critical and stressful situations. Some also suffer symptoms of depression, anxiety or substance abuse.
My clients enjoy a warm and confidential environment in which to be heard and gain the understanding and necessary skills to change that which is no longer serving their well-being. Utilizing problem-solving, short-term/brief counseling strategies most of my clients get their goals and objectives met in just a few sessions.
