Seeking support takes enormous courage. My approach is a balance of candidness and tenderness to meet your needs. I welcome feedback throughout our work to ensure we are on the right track and will continue to check in to support you in the best way possible. I use a trauma-focused lens- incorporating biological, social and psychological perspectives. Trauma modalities I incorporate, when appropriate, are Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing (EMDR), Brainspotting, Internal Family Systems (IFS) and mind-body medicine approaches.

Mental health challenges are due to the aftereffects of traumatic experiences. Trauma can place a strain on your family , work, relationships, and even cause issues with self-worth. I specialize in trauma therapy along with treating personality disorders, depression, mood disorders, anxiety, and addiction. All these disorders can look different from person to person, and that is where our therapeutic journey of empowerment and self-exploration begins. I concentrate on creating a safe space of growth and self-discovery through unconditional positive regard, emotional regulation, and guided activities.

My name is Anna Elise Loprieno, and I am a Master’s level Associate of Marriage and Family Therapy (AMFT #129147) with specialized training in Mindful Self Compassion (MSC) and evidence-based behavior modification using both Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) & Comprehensive Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT).
I believe that the first step to routing a path toward change is first in accepting where we currently are. My approach to the work of connection & collaboration honors a nonjudgmental reflection of each client's experiences, needs, and goals for their future. It is possible to find a new balance by working to reduce the impact of experiences such as anxiety, ruminations, or self-doubt which tend to get in the way of acting according to our individual values.

I also specialize in couples/ family therapy .
Do you have trouble with anxiety, depression, and relationship/ family issues due to trauma? Past experiences can create imprints onto your brain that activate your fight/flight responses whenever your emotions feel dysregulated, but life without the constant feeling of being on edge is possible. Those traumatic memories don’t have to permanently influence who you are meant to be. Through therapy, you will gain control of your feelings/thoughts and your response to everyday life hurdles. Healing from trauma can create healthier beliefs about yourself and your relationships along with sustainable changes.

Family Therapy

What do family therapists do?

A family therapist facilitates the process of understanding and improving how a family functions. The therapist will help family members develop empathy for one another. They’ll seek to understand existing patterns, misunderstandings, and conflicts that arise, in order to help the family arrive at a realistic, unified understanding and develop the coping skills they need to build stronger relationships.

How long does therapy for families take to work?

Therapy manifests differently in every family; a common time frame is 12 weekly sessions, but some families may see improvement after just a few weeks. Families should discuss their goals with the therapist at the beginning of the process and periodically revisit those goals to assess their progress together.

How can you encourage a family member to attend family therapy?

You can encourage family members to attend therapy by expressing with both love and concern the challenges you see and explaining how a therapist could help the family navigate those challenges together. An outside perspective can help everyone feel heard, get on the same page, and develop new skills. If family members are still hesitant, it may be helpful to emphasize that family therapy is short-term—it won’t last forever.

Is therapy for families effective?

Family therapy can significantly improve family dynamics and relationships. Research suggests that family therapy can help individuals understand their role in the family, communicate and solve problems together, reduce conflict and draw boundaries when necessary, and develop coping skills for stressors, major life changes, and mental or physical illnesses within the family.
