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.

She is currently working on her Doctorate in Counseling. Ann is a member of the American Association of Marriage and Family Therapists and the American Association of Christian Counselors.

She feels her varied experiences have enriched her ability to understand situations clients often face and to help them navigate to health.
