Hi, I’m Anna.
A marriage and family therapist and individual psychotherapist with expertise dedicated to helping you become the person and spouse you want to be.
Dedicated to helping you have the relationship and marriage you most want.
My work (and throughout this website) is devoted to sharing how I can help you and your relationship.
I’ve listed some common questions (below) to help provide an idea of how I can best help you.
I’m looking for therapy in Austin, are you the right therapist for me?
Yes! If you’re looking for therapy in Austin, wanting relationship help, and wanting to see a therapist that’s trained and skilled in relationship issues, you’ve come to the right place.
- I provide couples therapy, marriage counseling, individual therapy including EMDR therapy.
- I help couples and individuals rebuild trust, not only within a relationship and with each other, but also to rebuild trust in oneself.
- I also help couples and individuals develop better communication skills and boundary setting.
I am known for my relationship expertise. Whether you’re wanting help with your current relationship or help with identifying and changing relationship patterns in your life, I can help.
Many individuals I see specifically work with me because of my ability to understand the complexities of being in relationship.
Are you a couples therapist?
Yes! I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and a Licensed Professional Counselor. I provide therapy in Austin and have specialized training in issues impacting couples through all the different stages of their relationship.
What’s your background?
It’s hard for me to think of a time when I wasn’t doing this amazing work. I have such a passion for helping couples build healthy, happy and satisfying relationships that it’s sometimes hard to imagine doing anything else!
But, I did have a career before becoming a couples therapist and individual psychotherapist. I started out, for nearly ten years, working in various public service jobs. One job that I absolutely loved and had wonderful success in was as a consultant for the Austin Fire Department. The Austin Fire Department does such amazing, brave, and courageous work – each and every day! It was an honor working to help support the brave men and women firefighters of the Austin Fire Department.
I also served as a public health policy analyst for the Texas Legislature. This was such a wonderful experience that I will always carry with me.
Many people ask if I’m from Austin…while I’m not originally from Austin, I have lived here since 1992 when I attended The University of Texas at Austin. Seen a lot of changes! And still loving Austin, TX, each and every day.

How can you help us when other therapy in Austin has not?
Such a great question. I know it can be hard to begin this process again.
When you work with me as your therapist, I help you get to the heart of what’s impacting you.
If you’re seeing me for couples therapy or marriage counseling, we will work toward understanding what’s keeping you distant from each other; what’s causing communication issues between you; what’s triggering arguments or causing you to avoid each other.
You will learn how to quickly repair with each other when issues, disagreements or arguments happen. Resulting in better communication, better understanding of each other’s needs, and better connection with each other.
If you’re seeing me for individual therapy, we will work toward creating the change you envision. We will work together to create a narrative that fits you now, that fits you today, and frees you from negative narratives of the past.
Can I see you individually if my partner isn’t interested in seeing a couple therapist?
Yes! If you are wanting relationship help but your partner isn’t interested at this time, that’s ok, we can still work together.
If you’re partner decides at some point they’d like to start couples therapy, I am open to talking more about this with you.
