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

Have you been feeling stressed and overwhelmed? Are you having trouble sleeping, experiencing headaches, or feeling generally rundown? Do you have low self-worth? Do you question your competence as a professional, a romantic partner, and/or a caregiver? Are you experiencing burnout at work, home, or across other life areas?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, I invite you to explore how therapy might help! I believe in living a life that matches one's values and what is important to them. When I meet with clients, I ask about what issues are going on in their lives and how I can support them as therapist. My hope for you as we work together is that we identify your goals, actively work towards achieving them, and help you to feel happier and less stressed in the process.

If this sounds like it's worth exploring, please reach out! I'd love to hear from you. :)
