ANN CAPULIN-THAYER, LAC

    Ann completed her BS in Communication at Evergreen State College and obtained her Master’s Degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Northern Arizona University where she graduated with honors of Summa Cum Laude. She has worked with adults, couples and groups in outpatient settings, along with court-mandated clients recovering from substance abuse.

Ann is passionate about working with individuals suffering with anxiety, depression, traumatic experiences and difficult life transitions. Ann highly values truly listening to clients and helping them feel understood. Ann helps clients understand their past, their desired future, and explores what is/is not working for for you in the present while considering your personal, relational, and cultural influences. I want to understand what motivates you and what makes you just want to hide out.

Ann currently assists with the NAU counseling program and is planning to pursue a PhD in Counselor Education and Supervision. She also utilizes EMDR Therapy in conjunction with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) approaches as is fitting.
