Announcement icon I offer telehealth services & would be honored to support you during this uncertain time. Let's start with a free phone consult.
If you are a parent of a child or teen experiencing behavioral or emotional challenges or you (or your child) has overwhelming anxiety, pre- or postpartum mental health issues, a chronic illness, or you are wanting to work through a life transition, I will help you learn to cope effectively, experience a sense of well being, and realize your life goals. My approach is wholistic and strength-based, integrating a variety of approaches , including mindfulness + CBT, somatic, behavioral, narrative, transpersonal, and family therapy.
My specialties include anxiety, postpartum mood and anxiety issues; child and adolescent concerns, and medical concerns, including thyroid conditions. I also provide workshops to professionals and community groups on stress management, mood/anxiety regulation, and promotion of wellbeing.
I have 30+ years experience in the mental health with 25 years as a psychologist. I've worked in a variety of settings as both a clinical psychologist, executive manager, and clinical mentor. I also have extensive training and mentorship in therapeutic yoga and integrate evidenced based practices that are accessible to any age and anytime.

Professional Connections

For Ana's clinical knowledge and integrity, she is one of the clinicians that I trust the most. Our work on " Healing Emotions," is an inspiring and meaningful opportunity to collaborate on work that is close to my intention for "right livelihood." I recommend her for both her therapy work and for outreach to the community.

The knowledge that Ana possesses is only outweighed by her kindness and humor. It's been a pleasure to work with her professionally and also to know her personally through LifeForce Yoga training!
