Anne is a licensed mental health counselor providing therapy for teens, adults and families in the Redmond area. She helps clients dealing with self-esteem, relationship issues, trauma, work stress and eating disorders.
Anne is particularly skilled in working with teens and adults who are suffering from a troubled relationship with food. This includes all kinds of eating disorders and disordered eating patterns including anorexia, bulimia, emotional eating and related issues. Anne works to help her clients find a new way to cope with the issues that trouble them – especially when the way they are coping now is with food.
Another key focus of her practice is meeting the needs of business professionals and executives. Anne spent 30 years in the business world (mostly in high technology) and held managerial and executive positions, and therefore offers a unique understanding of the issues experienced by business professionals and executives including job related stress, work-life balance, depression, workplace interpersonal issues and career (and life) transitions.
Anne has a Master of Arts in Mental Health counseling from the American School of Professional Psychology. In addition, she has had extensive training in various approaches to treat eating disorders including Family Based Therapy (also known as Maudsley) which is an evidence based practice that uses the family as an active part of treatment of anorexia. She has also received training in ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy) and Lifespan Integration.
The foundation of Anne’s counseling style is building a trusting relationship with her clients where they feel emotionally safe. She believes that the client/counselor relationship is the essence of effective counseling and that if she can establish relationships with her clients where they feel well regarded and understood, they will be able to successfully resolve the issues that brought them into counseling.
