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 over 10 years ago.
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.
