Therapy available to residents of Georgia and Minnesota

Therapy in Georgia and Minnesota

Making the decision to seek therapy can be intimidating, but in my practice, I create a welcoming and compassionate environment to help alleviate those fears. Together, we will explore the root causes of your challenges by considering how they may be influenced by your relationships, your community, and your beliefs. Through this process, we can work towards greater understanding and growth.


Tele-Health Therapy

As a trained therapist, I am pleased to offer distance video therapy to individuals, couples or families living in Georgia and Minnesota who may benefit from this modality. Whether you need short-term or longer-term support, I can provide high-quality therapy sessions through a HIPPA-compliant video service, as well as HIPPA-compliant email, phone, and text communication. Your privacy is of the utmost importance to me, and I take every precaution to ensure that it is protected throughout the course of our work together.

"I met Ms. Ann in 2019 after browsing the Black Girls Therapy’s and Christian
Counselors of America websites. What stood out to me about her profile was her
commitment to Black girls and women. I also appreciated that she had a cultural
background similar to my own. I was new to therapy and wanted to speak with
someone who would relate to, not only my everyday struggles but also specific
cultural dynamics which contributed to generational cycles I was experiencing and
wanted to end. When I started my sessions over 3 years ago, I had lots of homework
which became invaluable. The homework allowed me to see where I was and
wanted to be. Even opening up my eyes to the cycle of emotional abuse, which at
the time, I didn’t know I was dealing with. Ms. Ann worked with Brene Brown in our
sessions with modules, worksheets, and one of Brene Brown’s books. I greatly
enjoyed these sessions and found them useful as well.

Last but not least, the Brainspotting work we did, especially during the height of the
COVID-19 pandemic, the Black Lives Matter Movement, and after being a caretaker
and losing the matriarch of our family and a very important person in my life. She
helped me tremendously to move past the grief and trauma to get “unstuck”. I had a
safe space in our sessions to be myself, work through hurt, and learn how to move
forward by self-regulating my own emotions. I am very grateful I met Ms. Ann and
she has been my therapist for the last 3 years. I have transitioned from weekly
sessions to as needed. There’s been so much growth, resources and support she has
provided me throughout the years. I also believe I am not a unique case and that she
is supportive and thoughtful with each one of her clients. When I share my
experiences with friends, many will say, “my therapist doesn’t do that! That’s good.”
This feedback always makes me smile and reminds me I am getting the best
experience for my mental health and overall well-being."
