Hi! I’m AnnLee, a Licensed Mental Health Counselor, mom, friend, daughter, and a work in progress. I believe every person has a unique story to tell, and it is through sharing these stories in safe places that healing can occur.
I feel privileged to hold space for others to be curious about themselves through relational, trauma-informed, and empathic care. I work with clients to develop a deeper connection to what serves them by engaging in the healing process — not just reviewing pain or reflecting on what makes them feel stuck but also celebrating changes and accomplishments.
I prioritize forming a deep, trusting connection with every client, which fosters a safe and nurturing environment allowing clients to dive deep within themselves to access their strengths and work through internal obstacles that hold them back from their full potential.
My passion for helping couples stems from my own experience with divorce. I know firsthand the pain, the heartache, and the financial and emotional toll it can take. But I also know couples can overcome challenges and build strong, healthy, and lasting relationships with the proper guidance, support, and tools. Every couple faces unique challenges, and it’s my job to help them navigate those challenges and find the right path to a happier and healthier relationship. I am certified in Level 1 of the Method Couples Therapy and use this evidence-based framework in sessions.
My work with individuals focuses on creating individualized treatment plans that address their personal goals. I help my clients to develop self-awareness by exploring patterns and beliefs that limit their progress. Equipped with new insight, I can then provide my clients with powerful tools to face any obstacle that comes their way.
When I’m not in the therapy chair, you can find me front row at one of my teenage son’s sporting events, walking my golden retriever- Archie, cheering on The Auburn Tigers, or enjoying the Florida sunshine.
