Dr. Ana is a clinical psychologist licensed in the states of PA, NJ, and VA. As a psychologist, she sees patients online in those states and in many other jurisdictions via her PSYPACT credential.  She is also a registered nurse (RN) in PA. As a psychotherapist, Dr. Ana specializes in assisting people who have suffered psychological trauma or who have addictive behaviors; she also works with people with other difficulties. Her unique approach to psychotherapy focuses on helping people to put complex life experiences into words, gain insight into their thoughts, emotions, and relationships, improve their body-mind integration, and flourish despite obstacles. She offers empathy and bears witness to the difficult things that people have faced in life, such as serious illness or injury, addiction, spiritual distress, betrayal, loss, and other traumas.

Dr. Ana helps patients to understand how their past experiences have impacted their thoughts, feelings, behaviors, body, relationships, and present reality. She also assists patients in examining and changing unhealthy thinking and relationship patterns, and expressing and regulating emotions. She believes that people’s healthy faith and personal spirituality can be an important part of strength and maintaining well-being.

As a musician, visual artist, and athlete (figure skater), Dr. Ana helps interested patients to integrate the arts, creativity, and physical activities into their daily routines to assist emotional well-being.
