Hi.  My name is Ann, and I'm a therapist, among other things.  I love brains and am fascinated by how they work.  I also love human resilience and watching when people overcome difficulties in life.  I hate that therapist bio's tend to be cheesy, and I really don't want mine to be, but I do think it's important for you to know a few things about me.  I am passionate about mental health awareness; I want to be a contributing force to ending the stigma we all face if we've struggled with mental health issues. Yeah, you read that right, I have struggled with my mental health too.  That's not something I'm ashamed of, I think it gives me a great perspective on what we are capable of.  I'm a parent, I'm a partner, a dog owner, and a tattooed nerd.  Therapy, for me, is a safe place to be yourself, to work on how you want that self to be present in the big wide world. 

 

TL;DR - I'm a nerdy tattooed therapist who likes brains (not the eating kind).
