Ann is a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist who works with adolescents, families, couples, and individuals struggling with co-occurring disorders, codependency, and other mental health diagnoses such as, depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, and ADHD. Additionally, Ann is equipped to treat clients with substance abuse/addiction issues as well as disordered eating patterns.
Ann utilizes narrative and solution-focused approaches in her work, aiding clients in accessing inner strengths and building resiliency. Ann draws from attachment-based and emotion-focused approaches to guide her method of intervention with clients, in addition to systems theory-based techniques. Her education and training in family systems means she has a systemic perspective on a client’s presenting problem. She also offers skills-building through DBT and CBT modalities to enhance clients' ability to regulate emotions.
Ann has an extensive background having worked with a myriad of clients. She has experience at a residential facility for adults with co-occurring disorders (substance abuse and mental health diagnoses), a residential facility for teens with eating disorders, an outpatient facility for teens, families, and adults with dual-diagnoses, and most recently, a Partial Hospitalization Program and Intensive Outpatient Program for teens with co-occurring disorders and strained family dynamics. This most recent employer, Newport Academy, describes her as a “team-player, always willing to help others and having a constant display of empathy and compassion with her clients.”
Ann is currently accepting new clients virtually. She is out-of-network with insurances, although she can provide documentation for clients to submit to insurance for reimbursement.
