Life is a wonderful, and at times difficult journey. When you experience anxiety, depression, trauma or relationship/family issues on top of the pressures of daily life, coping effectively can be overwhelming. Yet know that with the right support and toolbox of skills, you have the ability to prioritize your happiness and achieve your goals. Your journey to assemble this tool box does not have to happen alone. I can provide a nurturing space where you can gain insight into unwanted patterns of behavior, identify and challenge unhelpful automatic thinking patterns and get in touch with your innate strength.

We are all simply human, striving to live the best life we can live in a beautiful but challenging world. You may find that “life lessons”, patterns and beliefs that you have developed from your journey have both accelerated you toward success, resilience and productivity, while simultaneously impairing your relationships, ability to develop authentic happiness and achievement of your true potential. I work to provide a safe and supportive space to allow your story to be heard while exploring patterns and habits of behavior that may have developed along the way.

Depression, anxiety and problems in relationships often cause deep anguish and pain, just getting by each day can be difficult. We often struggle in silence, believing things will never get better or that no one could understand. Well-meaning friends and family urge us to “just get over it”-but that often that makes us feel alone. I believe every person possesses the potential to transform their life. With the right support and ability to learn healthy coping skills, we will work together in a collaborative process to create the change you have been waiting for. Therapy is a place just for you, to be heard, validated and supported.

"What good is psychotherapy if you're up to your a** in alligators?" A phrase that was used by my favorite professor in graduate school. My goal as a licensed clinical social worker is to meet individuals where they are in life presently, whether they need to process ongoing psychological challenges, or current anxiety and stress related to everyday concerns. With my patients, I want to help process through feelings, thoughts, and behaviors and help facilitate a better understanding of any underlying issues. Ultimately, helping individuals to be able to live a more healthy and productive life.

**NEW GROUP AVAILABLE** You thought you would be embracing your vision of motherhood. Instead, you may find yourself crippled by waves of anxiety and sadness. Thoughts about your baby getting hurt or not breathing keep intruding in your mind. You worry that you’re not feeling the love and connection you imagined. Exhausted, you feel detached and angry. You’re not. Perhaps, you’re struggling with a birth experience that did not go as expected. It may have been anything from an unexpected cesarean to a near death experience which continues to cause physical and emotional pain. This emotional pain does not have to last forever.

Annette has been practicing for nearly 20 years. She enjoys working with families and individuals to create more calm and balance in their lives. If individuals can create a sense of calm within themselves; this can permeate outwards. They can build and sustain this throughout their lives and share this sense of compassion with family, friends and the world around them. My goal is to help my clients see both their strengths and weaknesses and to find a balance between the two. Change isn't easy, but when we simultaneously appreciate what is already good we can find balance and happiness while moving through transitions.

People struggling with fears, depression, relational problems, especially people who have somehow "lost" themselves tend to experience me as deeply compassionate yet able to target the primary cause(s) of their pain and identify what they may be doing to contribute to the ongoing problems in their lives. A sometimes surprising part of my therapeutic manner is that I am interactive in sessions while maintaining great respect for a person's capacity to direct their own lives and utilize their current pain toward growth of their real self and, hence, an enlivened life.

While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.
