Professional statement

Anna Gray is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker located in Dunwoody, GA. Anna is passionate about supporting women faced with significant life transitions. This includes starting college, careers, relationships, motherhood, and other role transitions that arise for many women. She helps clients navigate quarter-life crises, develop self-esteem and confidence, and explore their identities. She does this by bringing radical authenticity to each session, and by teaching clients to put social comparisons in their place.

Anna’s therapy approach combines the evidence-based Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) with mindfulness practices as well as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). In sessions with Anna, clients will learn how to identify negative thought patterns and challenge cognitive distortions. They’ll develop healthier self-talk and build their coping skills. By growing mindfulness skills, clients become more aware of their feelings, thoughts, and ideas. And as that awareness is strengthened, Anna empowers her clients to embrace where they're at, in order to move forward in the direction they want to go. Anna is a strengths-based therapist who believes that each client has unique traits that make them strong - and these strengths are especially helpful to lean on in their personal mental health journey.

Anna earned her Master’s degree from the University of Georgia. Her warmth and compassion for her clients creates a safe, comfortable, feminist atmosphere for women to explore their feelings without judgment. She especially enjoys supporting Millennial and Gen Z women as they begin their adult lives.


Message to clients

It can feel like a breath of fresh air when you’re able to be yourself, without worry or fear of judgment. For some people, this is a rare occurrence. For others, it may feel like there is simply no room in their lives to be their truly authentic self. I am truly grateful to be able to provide online therapy for clients in Georgia and New York, so they can incorporate that safe, nonjudgmental space into their regular routine, with intention and purpose.

The commitment I make to each of my clients is that I will mindfully hold a safe space for them, bringing as much of my empathic presence to each therapy session as possible. You can think of therapy as a container to ventilate emotions when needed, a space to be seen and heard by a trusted and reliable professional, and an empowering resource, helping you learn new ways of coping with life stressors. I am so excited to connect and help you get started on your personal journey toward greater joy and fulfillment in your everyday life.
