Anne's Approach

Holds Space with Safety

In a sacred healing space of loving kindness, with a person-centered and compassionate method coupled with the skill set to listen, guide and witness people on their journey of self-discovery.

Anne's egalitarian approach will hold space for your pain and will be a humble journey guide to lead you towards empowerment and healing.

Anne's therapy stems from a safe understanding of cultural perspective and inclusiveness. Anne services the under privileged, under serviced and holds no judgment or opinion in culture, race or religion.

A lotus flower submerges every night into the mud —undeterred by its negative environment—

it miraculously re-blooms the next morning without residue on its petals.

Prepare to transform and awaken like a lotus flower.
