What to Expect

Our office is located near down town and provides a peaceful place for therapeutic support. Due to COVID 19 precautions, we request that all clients wait downstairs in the waiting area. Your therapist will greet you there and bring you to our office. At this time, we are requesting that all persons meeting in person wear a face covering for your safety and ours. Your initial paperwork can be conveniently completed ahead of time through our virtual portal so all you need to do is show up for session! Call today or complete a contact form to schedule an appointment with one of our Flagstaff therapists.

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.
