Philosophically, Ann believes counseling begins with a safe and collaborative relationship between therapist and client. Her position as a counselor is to help the client identify areas of concern; empathically investigate causes and origins of behaviors that may maintain unhealthy patterns; teach constructive coping skills; suggest strategies for empowering life patterns; and assist in identity development. She believes in the power of relationships and enjoys working with clients to develop strong and meaningful connections in their lives.
Ann earned her PhD in Counseling from Newburgh Seminary and her MA in Counseling from Gordon Conwell Theological Seminary where she graduated with honors. She is also a member of Psi Chi, the National Honor Society in Psychology. Ann is a member of the American Association of Marriage and Family Therapists and the American Association of Christian Counselors. Prior to a counseling career, she worked for a major corporation as an Industrial Engineer and also owned and operated a small private company. She feels her varied experiences have enriched her ability to understand situations clients often face and to help them navigate to health.

Depending on your current health insurance provider or employee benefit plan, it is possible for services to be covered in full or in part. Please contact your provider to verify how your plan compensates you for psychotherapy services.
I’d recommend asking these questions to your insurance provider to help determine your benefits:
- Does my health insurance plan include mental health benefits?
- Do I have a deductible? If so, what is it and have I met it yet?
- Does my plan limit how many sessions per calendar year I can have? If so, what is the limit?
- Do I need written approval from my primary care physician in order for services to be covered?
I accept cash, check and all major credit cards as forms of payment.
Credit card payment is dependent on the therapist you work with. A 3 or 4% surcharge will apply for credit card payments.
If you are unable to attend a session, please make sure you cancel at least 24 hours beforehand. Otherwise, you may be charged for the full rate of the session.
