Anna uses a variety of therapeutic tools and approaches to assist her clients, such as Mindfulness Practices, Cognitive Behavioral, Educational and Psychodynamic.

The newest segment of our show is called “Teen2Parent Talk”. We have gathered and will be gathering some amazing 18 – 23-year-olds who will not only be sharing with you, the parents, their insights, advice, tribulations, hope, and dreams but they will also be giving the same to our teens.

We will be talking to these young adults about everything from social media to substance abuse to mental illness to divorce to dating/sex, and school. No stone will be unturned. No subject is too much or to little.

Our goal is that these young adults will be bridging the gap between you and your kids to create the beautiful, harmonic, deep & meaningful family you’re working towards creating.
