“I met Anna through her work as a teacher in the Trauma Center Trauma Sensitive Yoga Program (TCTSY). I had developed a Healing Workshop for survivors of sexual assault and domestic violence, and was looking for a “Trauma Recovery Expert” to help me assess and improve upon the Program. Anna came to me highly recommended by a TCTSY student I knew.
Everything about my work with Anna surpassed my hopes and expectations. She was deeply grounded in the science and latest research around trauma recovery, and deeply dedicated to its application, which is still evolving. Through my work I had learned that there are large gaps between the trauma recovery science/research and its effective application to healing. But this was something Anna knew as well, which made our collaboration extremely effective and productive.
As much as I was impressed by Anna’s knowledge and dedication to healing, I was equally if not more impressed by her kindness and her heart. Anna has a light that shines brightly as she looks for the light in others. I don’t believe you can truly help others heal unless you have found that healing light within yourself. Because of these qualities of the mind and heart and her dedication to helping others, I would strongly recommend Anna for anyone seeking help, either personally or professionally, in the field of trauma recovery specifically or behavioral health in general.” (Nonprofit director)
“This program was amazing and helped my mental state more than I could explain. Anna is amazing, kind, understanding, and the most grounding person I have ever met. I always felt welcome and wanted, for the first time in my life i felt like I belong fsomewhere. Everyone who has anxiety, depression, guilt, fear, stress, or any other concerning feelings should be encouraged to take this class.” - TCTSY class participant
"I began my EMDR treatment with Anna when my PTSD symptoms were overwhelming my daily life. Initially, I assumed EMDR would intrude and exhaust my mental and emotional capacity for the day as it might reopen some old wounds. However, I learned that EMDR is not about re-living the trauma but processing aspects of a memory in a contained manner under Anna's guidance. When we were going through a traumatic memory, EMDR helped objectify that situation and remove senses of guilt and shame I felt about an event I either had or had no control over. It was thanks to EMDR that I was finally able to overcome some of my deepest and most scarring memories." - EMDR client
