Registered Mental Health Counselor Intern
As a counselor, Anna hopes to create a safe space for clients to share openly and deeply their past and current struggles. It is her passion to work collaboratively with clients to create meaningful change and freedom in life and relationships. She seeks to be an empathetic listener and communicator, knowing both personally and professionally the difference of being fully known and seen by another person. Drawing from her experience working in youth ministry, Anna enjoys walking with teens and families through the ups and downs of adolescence. Certified as a Prepare and Enrich facilitator, Anna offers premarital counseling and couple’s counseling, helping clients strengthen and enrich their relationships.
Anna approaches counseling from an attachment-based, emotion-focused perspective for individuals, couples, and families. She received her Master of Arts in Counseling from Reformed Theological Seminary. At the University of Florida, Anna received her Bachelor of Science in Family, Youth, and Community Sciences. Native to Orlando, Anna enjoys spending time with her husband, Joel, and close friends exploring the city. When she’s not lost in a good book, Anna loves running or biking and spending time outdoors.
