Anne did clinical training at The UCLA/Matrix Institute on Addiction, The Center for Individual and Family Counseling, and The Center for Interpersonal Development. She worked with countless individuals providing one-on-one counseling and relationship seminars in California before moving to North Carolina.

When she launched a practice in North Carolina, her clients reported stress, anxiety, depression and a host of other ailments. Anne noticed almost everyone used words expressing sadness, frustration or anger. She could see that their partner was important to them and thoughts of losing their relationship were stressful and overwhelming.

Anne began to focus her practice on couples and was committed to providing the best couples therapy available anywhere. As her practice grew, demand for couples therapy increased and Anne wanted to find a way to provide premier services to more people. That is when Wellness Counseling Center was launched.

My partner arranged for us to see Dr. Hancock after several months of spiraling in our relationship. He researched and reached out to the office and had been in contact with LeeAnne (scheduler and cheerleader) before even sharing the details of the program with me. This is the sexiest move he’s ever made. We traveled from the Midwest for our intensive weekend with Dr. Hancock. Due to the pandemic, the office was quiet during our visit—we had the whole place to ourselves. Dr. Hancock got down to business in helping us identify our cycle. Over the course of several hours and a few days, we had a new perspective on our old problem. We learned new things about ourselves and one another, fleshed out how we engage during conflict, and gained a fresh perspective on our feelings (and even put words to reactions we had only known as “ewwww” and “yuck” before). Dr. Hancock is kind, gentle, and direct. We highly recommended the investment with her, both financially and emotionally. Prepare yourselves to be uncomfortable in the comfort of a provider who is nonjudgmental and who expects honesty, integrity, and an open mind.

We highly recommend this amazing place. Words cannot describe our amazing experience with Anne at The Wellness Counseling Center. She was truly a blessing to my husband and I. She was meant for helping people. She certainly helped reconnect us. Being married for 24 years ,and like every married couple, we found ourselves in a difficult place. We needed some guidance. We were drifting ,and fast. We started out as high school sweethearts, have 3 children, moved a few times over our years, made career changes, and now about to see our first born leave the nest. Ann helped us find each other. We learned things about one another, we never knew! She helped us find our weak foundation points in our relationship and how to strengthen our foundation. We learned every relationship has a “dance”. And we are learned what our negative dance was/is. We also learned how to see the dance, catch ourselves and improve the flow so it doesn’t spiral in a downward motion. Furthermore, she taught us how to communicate more effectively. Meeting Ann and working with her has truly turned around our negative dance and it’s saved our marriage. Couldn’t be more grateful.
