What is Psychotherapy?


      Psychotherapy involves an objective collaboration between client and a trained professional therapist.  Stress can impair our capacity for pleasure, our perception, meaning and connection. Unhappiness can erode the quality of our life, amplify pain, and interfere with our ability to connect intimately. Depression can affect work, hurt family and isolates us from social relationships.

      Annie works with a variety of tools and introduces new skills where needed to facilitate the shift from discord to harmony.  If you are dissatisfied with some part of your life, feel distressed, overwhelmed, depressed or are in need of help to cope with a problem, make a therapy appointment now.


Her approach is eclectic, she teaches new skills, provides insight and education in various areas. 


Past experiences create belief systems that directly affect our thoughts and behaviors.  We may often need help to reframe our view of situations to be able see a broader perspective on situations, to be able to move on and experience all that life has to offer beyond  present limited horizons.




Cognitive Behavioral Therapy


     When we understand how behavior change works we are able to make better choices and therefore achieve better results.  Most people make choices unconsciously, operating completely below their level of awareness.   Making conscious choices and concious changes in our belief systems is often a first step in changing behavior.
