I’m Anna and I have had seven years of experience working within the mental health field with a wide client demographic, including a variety of cultural backgrounds, disabilities, age range, and socioeconomic status. I have experience with anxiety and depression concerns, and am passionate about interpersonal and close relationships in general.
My Counselling Philosophy:
I enjoy developing a strong rapport with clients and working in collaboration with them to achieve their goals, promote and improve their overall well-being and quality of life. I think it is important to highlight the client’s strengths and also to embrace their unique traits. I enjoy learning about what is meaningful to each client. My approach is flexible. Whether the client is feeling lost and overwhelmed, looking for personal growth or specific changes in their life, seeking further understanding of themselves, findings ways to manage and cope or to simply reflect, I will continue to check-in with them to make sure the sessions are meeting their needs.
