Meet Anya
           Hello! I'm Anya, and I bring 30 years experience in the healing arts to my work with you. My aim is to help you have more ease & peace in your life -- body, mind, heart & spirit.
           I'm a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Vermont with an office in Burlington. I've also offered online counseling on the phone and through video conferencing for several years.

About My Approach
           I'm an interactive therapist, which means I don't just sit and say "Uh-huh." I ask questions, dialog, and engage. Sometimes I'm very gentle, and sometimes I challenge you.
           I believe therapy is a learning and growth experience, and we have to learn together what is most helpful for you. Sometimes, if you wish, we try experiential practices to facilitate learning and growing (Mindfulness & Meditation, Gestalt, Focusing, Imaging & Dreamwork).
           And if what you most need is simply compassionate listening and support, I can truly be there.
My Experience
           My professional training has include traditional and body-centered psychotherapy, clinical hypnotherapy, behavioral medicine, Reiki, energy healing, mindfulness and meditation, various bodywork modalities, and the arts.
           I've been a meditation practitioner since 1979 and completed my first 3-month meditation retreat in 2016.
           I integrate many different approaches in my counseling and healing work with people, and most importantly, I practice what I teach.

What People Report After Counseling with Anya
           "Anya is a gifted therapist. Her mindfulness-based approaches, thoughtful listening and coaching have helped me immensely.  With guidance from Anya, I have increased my well-being and developed nourishing daily practices to live my life more fully and joyfully."
           "I am very grateful for Anya's support! I was 22 years old and suffering from depression and social anxiety.... I began seeing Anya for the better portion of a year and after weekly sessions, I can say that I'm living my 20's to their fullest!"
           “My work with Anya turned me into one of the biggest advocates for counseling in both my work and personal life. After four years of one-on-one work, Anya has guided me into a new level of independence and self-respect. I’ve learned to explore my family history, make sense of myself, and begin to move forward with incremental change and self-kindness. I am forever changed for the better and owe so much to Anya."
           "Anya has terrific insight and a caring way about her."
           "Anya has helped me so much this past year to recognize my feelings and how to deal with them in other ways besides food."
           "Anya is a quiet but powerful voice bringing clarity and wisdom with love and tenderness."
           "Anya truly listens and makes suggestions and helps me problem-solve. If I'm uncomfortable with one solution, she will work to find another one. She has taught me practices that really work for me: being mindful, using breathing in every day living, and mantras of positive thinking.
