Anne Heaton-Armstrong, BA
I am a Counseling Intern in my final year of graduate school, studying for my Master’s in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. My approach to therapy is person-centered, tailored to meet your individual needs. I strive to create a safe space where you can be yourself and share your story openly, honestly, and without fear of judgment. I use a blend of practical skills and insight-driven exploration to identify goals and help you implement the changes you wish to see in your life.
From a theoretical stance, I practice from an existential perspective. I believe that by cultivating self-awareness and by striving for authenticity, we empower ourselves to make the kinds of choices that enable us to live fulfilling and purposeful lives, consistent with who we are at heart. My practice also incorporates the intentional use of tools, drawn from various theoretical perspectives including Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Solution-Focused, and other theories designed to foster accountability within the process and to keep us both on track with your progress.
I am available to work with a broad range of individuals, tackling issues related to life transitions, parenthood, anxiety, depression, relationships, self-esteem, assertiveness, boundaries, work and career concerns, those experiencing various forms of loss, distress, and other concerns.
Prior to counseling, I spent several years working as a lawyer. I also held many volunteer positions and have worked in crisis management helping individuals facing a variety of challenges.
