My name is Anna,
I'm the Millennial Therapist.
We all struggle at points in our journey, but you don't have to struggle alone. I'm here to provide some insight on how psychotherapy may help you and what you can expect from me as a therapist.
Spoiler alert: I'm a millennial myself, and I'm passionate about providing mental health care for 20-somethings and 30-somethings who feel lost or stuck. I offer individual therapy, couples counseling, and premarital counseling both online and in-person.
Helping young adults navigate relationships and struggles common of the 20-something/30-something age group is a cause that I've dedicated my practice to because I know the struggle. I've lived it. Millennials as a generation experience a very unique combination of sociological, political, and environmental factors that contribute to problems such as high anxiety rates, “fraud syndrome”, and increased loneliness just to name a few. We are also supposedly more connected now than at any other time in humanity thanks to technology and globalization - so why doesn’t it feel like it? We may not be the first generation to experience loneliness or anxiety, but we do experience these problems at record high rates and the way we experience these problems is notably unique.
The world is different than it used to be, so it follows that the way we survive and thrive within it is different too. I use this contextual framework to inform the therapy I do with my clients. Modern problems require modern approaches. In session, I strive to bring realness and safety to our therapeutic relationship. Without a sense of safety, one can't be expected to be vulnerable, and it's only in moments of vulnerability that growth occurs. I use a somatically-focused form of therapy with my clients, which means that we will attend to the mind-body connection in our work together. Some of my particular interests as a therapist include depression, body-based approaches to chronic stress and anxiety, problems related to high-pressure tech careers, sexual concerns, and trauma therapy. Read more about some of my specializations here.
I’m an open book. feel free to give me a call or shoot me a message, I’d love to get to know you over a cup of coffee. Free 20 minute consultations are always available over the phone or in person, no strings attached.
All the best,
