“I’m committed to helping couples resolve their issues – or move on with dignity following separation or divorce.”
Anne Parsons, PhD is a licensed clinical psychologist who specializes in helping clients cope with relationship conflict. With a 20-year background in trauma recovery and conflict resolution, Dr. Parsons has seen the damaging effects of relationships gone wrong. She provides therapy for individuals, couples, adolescents, and families to treat a variety of mental health challenges — including trauma resolution, depression and anxiety, relationship and marital issues, and life transitions.
Treatment is a thoughtful process, and Dr. Parsons works collaboratively with her clients to develop an individually tailored approach in the work they do together. Her interest in conflict resolution is passion-based. She is especially focused on helping families repair and strengthen relationships. If that is not possible, she provides guidance in the transition before, during and after separation or divorce. As a Collaborative Divorce Coach and mediator she rebuilds new lives by helping with Parenting Plans, navigating a more successful co-parenting relationship, and dealing with the challenges of blended families or new relationships ahead.
Understanding that every client is unique, Dr. Parsons rejects “one size fits all” formulas. Instead she uses a variety of approaches, each adapted to resolve issues and meet their needs in the most supportive way possible.
