    It's nice to meet you:

    My name is Anna. 

    I am a licensed mental health counselor.  I received my master’s degree in counseling at Sioux Falls Seminary and completed post graduate studies in mental health counseling at the University of South Dakota. 

    What do I do? What can I offer?

    I help adults and teens process deep emotions linked to depression and anxiety, identify trauma responses that promote cycles of distress, and assist with emotion regulation, support, and personal growth. 

    I help creatives and highly sensitive people (HSP) create environments and lifestyles to understand, develop and optimize their unique strengths. 

    I help couples to create a greenhouse for their relationship. I teach them the art of being a couple by creating a deeper friendship, developing emotional intimacy, affection, affirmation, and improve functional patterns. I am a trained Emotion Focused & Gottman Method therapist.

    I help clients to understand how nutrition, food choices, nature and movement can improve their mood and wellness.  I am a certified integrative mental health provider and wilderness therapy guide.

    I help client to develop a life cadance to promote work/life balance, internal peace and emotional wellness.

    I help to support pastors, chaplains, spiritual directors and first responders through burn out, overwhelm and fatigue. 

    I hope to have the opportunity to work together!
