Professional statement

Ana Hinshaw is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who has been working in the mental health field since 2010. She graduated from California State University, Sacramento in 2014 with her Master of Social Work degree, and attained her LCSW in March of 2018. She has experience working with a wide range of behavioral/mental health issues, including stress, anxiety, depression, and interpersonal problems. She has worked and volunteered across a variety of settings, including nonprofits, group homes, and crisis centers. She also has experience providing intervention support in the field, such as school-based or home-based sessions. She has worked with clients who might require additional resources and can offer referrals and relevant information if needed. Most of her experience has been with adolescents and young adults, but she has worked with clients from ages 2- to over 75-years-old.

Her counseling style is based on humanistic, strengths-based, and solution-focused approaches. She truly believes that clients are the experts of their own lives and hopes to empower them as much as possible. She is a great listener and aims to explore what behavioral/mental issues and stressors are impacting a client’s life. When appropriate, she might review various interventions, such as education about a specific issue, coping skills to manage stress, or interpersonal skills to improve relationships. Her goal is to act as an objective sounding board, and she wants clients to feel free to discuss anything.


Message to clients

Tired of feeling stressed, overwhelmed, or stuck in life? Are you going through your days on autopilot, with no clear direction on where you’re going? Or even if you do know what you want, are you feeling helpless or hopeless about things getting better?

Having a clear life path, more energy, and happiness may seem like a far away dream. Waking up and feeling excited about your day may feel impossible. Especially if one of your favorite pastimes is hitting that snooze button 10+ times every morning.

Working with me will provide more than just a space to vent your anxieties and frustrations. I’ll ask about your goals and what you want out of life. I’ll get nosy and ask about why you want these things. You have it in you to live the life of your dreams! I will work with you in figuring out how to get there.

Online therapy means that you can do therapy in your (parked) car on your lunch break, in bed in your pajamas, or any location that is most flexible for you. Based on your unique needs, I can offer 30-, 60-, and 90-minute sessions. I also offer a variety of therapeutic approaches, which means you will have care that is more personalized, flexible, and catered to healing your emotional pains.
