With well over 15 years experience working with clients in various settings, I still find it an honor and joy to witness personal transformations. I provide a warm, safe, and non- judgmental space where children, teens, and adults can reflect on how they are developing and explore what changes they want to create for themselves. I join clients in creating attainable goals that help find balance, satisfaction, and well being in all areas of one's life.
I specialize in treating trauma, stress, depression, anxiety, grief and loss, attachment issues, infant and early childhood mental health, adoption, survivors of abuse, domestic violence, LGBT issues, survivors of suicide, parenting, spirituality and difficult life transitions. I also incorporate ceremony, ritual, and rites of passage into my work with clients.
My approach is individualized, holistic, strength-based, no nonsense, pragmatic, culturally competent and client centered. My approach also involves the teachings of the Medicine Wheel, a sacred old concept used to explain life and a means to personal empowerment.

Annette has a way of connecting with children that helps them feel safe and accepted right away. Her boundaries are clear and healthy while warm and inviting. I would (and have) recommend Annette to anyone looking for a wonderful, nurturing play therapist.
