Reclaim your vitality

Balance Mind, Body, Spirit

Learn, Let Go, Discover, Transform

Healing from the Center

The power to heal and transform is within you. You are so much more than your story, your diagnosis, your patterns, triggers, pain, accomplishments, goals, etc…Within your Center, is a powerful creative energy that is intelligent, wise, and loving. My role as guide is to create the safe space for you to discover that Center and learn quickly how old wounds, nervous system patterns, and symptoms can shift.

Let’s work together to:

Discover: what’s at the core, blocking your health, ease and authentic expression. Discover your Center, shadow, potential and gifts.

Embrace:  all the parts of you, your history, your process, your heart, body, and life

Create: health, joy, connection, ease, confidence and resilience 

Embody: your healing, your truth, your spiritual knowing, and your life energy

With a playful sense of curiosity, wonder, and compassion we discover what’s true for you; what’s presenting now. We embrace and work with the body, emotions, energy, metaphor, dreams, story, potential, stillness and imagination. We challenge the old way of thinking and reacting with processes and tools that anchor a new of perceiving and operating in the world. Those perceptions and actions lay the foundation for creating lasting shifts in your health, relationships and spirituality. Begin today to embody your authentic self and potential.

I work with individuals and groups offering tools from the following menu and may use all of them in one session or just focus on one aspect. 

Workplace wellness services include wellness education, stress reduction and mindfulness programs. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, I am offering online video sessions and programs that are educational and experiential. Combining the latest in neuroscience and contemplative practices, participants learn effective tools to manage their stress, find their peaceful center and gain access to enhanced problem solving, creativity and connection.

I am now offering the Safe and Sound Protocol developed by Dr. Stephen Porges based on the Polyvagal Theory. This listening intervention helps to re-tone the vagus nerve leading to improvements for those with stress, anxiety, digestive disorders, trauma, attention difficulties and other mental and physical illnesses. Please read my blog post, Feel Better, Think Better, Connect Better for more information. Contact me directly for more information and pricing.

Ann has a beautiful way of freeing up the bodily energies that keep us bound up in fear and often stop us from moving forward. She does this using a blend of counseling, energy healing techniques and intuition. Clients often walk away from one session feeling profound freedom from stuff they have been carrying around their entire life

I've been seeing Ann regularly for almost a year now. My experience with her has been nothing short of life changing. I walked in Ann's door for the first time in a very bad place emotionally, mentally and physically. Ann has helped me approach and see experiences much differently. She has helped me strengthen my relationship with my family, my friends and most importantly with myself. My eyes have been opened to an understanding of my path in life and the journey I'm on. I have built a confidence to be the best version of myself. I have never felt more clear and grounded as I do after this past year with Ann. I plan to continue my work and keep growing.

Ann is a healer--a healer of the heart, the gut, the mind, the body, and ultimately, the spirit. She holistically nourish individuals by listening to their pain and symptoms, supplying them with knowledge about various healing approaches, guiding them through exercises, and performing energy work. Basically, she’s amazing.

Jana

I loved working with Ann. She provided an incredible value to me at a crucial time in my life. I was pregnant with my second child and looking for ways to balance my emotional and physical health...which undeniably are interlinked. She is very holistic in that she looks at the entire individual's lifestyle, goals, values, spiritual center, etc... As a psychotherapist, I so appreciate this type of approach. She considers systemic issues, in addition to individual obstacles. However, she is also very strengths focused. I would absolutely recommend Ann to others. She is incredibly knowledgable, a good listener, warm, and open. And she is passionate about what she does without inflicting her own values on your personal viewpoints.

Kurt

Ann has...A gentle presence that instills confidence and trust. A non-judgemental vibe that supports deep reflection. A keen ability to intuit a) what's needed, or b) what's in the way of healing/progress. An empathic ability to communicate in a way listeners truly hear. An amazing gift for balancing wisdom of the heart, studied knowledge, and soul's call. An approach to healing that unifies science, spirituality and felt experience.

Janis

Yes, I would highly recommend you to friends, because I believe in the practices you are using are unique and extremely beneficial to help bring about change for a healthier way of living and being, integrating all aspects of the Self.

Maddie

I learned that I am not broken and I am not defined by diagnoses handed to me. They are a facet of my story, as is every other thing that makes me "me"! I learned to stop pigeonholing myself as a sick person.

Katie

It is so healing and empowering working with Ann. We look at all aspects and she brings inspiration and resources. Her presence in active listening and healing on the table is phenomenal.

Diane

Ann is truly a gifted healer. She has been trained in many healing modalities that work with the energy of mind, body and soul. Remaining compassionate and curious, she creates a safe and sacred space that allows me to share anything I've been experiencing. Using her intuition, she chooses what would work best in the moment. I often walk away from our sessions permanently forgetting the overwhelming problem I walked in with. A true shift occurs, releasing stuck energy allowing me to feel peace and joy again!

Reina S.

Through Ann's assessments and ongoing coaching,  we have problem solved my food intolerances and hormone imbalances. I now am 30 pounds lighter and maintaining, and I have quite a bit of extra quality time to spend with my family since I'm not exercising 2 hours a day! I am enjoying a much less stressful life thanks to Ann.
