Life is a journey that presents us with choices, opportunities and obstacles along the way. Anne is a compassionate and caring counselor, who greets clients where they are on their journey and walks alongside them, wherever their journey finds them. Her many years as an art instructor lend to her clinical skills through creative therapies, such as Art Therapy and Play Therapy, and kids and teens quickly develop a strong rapport with Anne, allowing for beautiful positive change in their lives.
