Our Therapist

Annie Vance, Headshot

Licensed in Hawaii MFT-136 and California MFT 40007

Our head therapist, Annie Vance, PhD, has been trained to use the Psychobiological Approach to Couples Therapy, developed by Dr. Stan Takin. Her early training in child development has been an excellent foundation for working with attachment, family systems, and psycho neurobiological theories of human relationships. The therapy she provides has helped many a patient.

Currently, she integrates early attachment principles with attachment in romantic adult relationships, emotional safety and security, and the developmental stages. This is done in relationships as assessed through the Adult Assessment Interview, developed by Mary Main and modified by Stan Tatkin. On our Continuing Education page, you’ll see other courses and trainings she has attended each year.
