Hi, I'm Anne of Grit & Grace and there are a few things I know for sure.
You have a vision for how you want to live, but the impact of your anxiety, perfectionism and inner critic is keeping you from stepping forward. You are looking for someone who can support and guide you in gaining insight into who you are and how you can overcome the challenges you are facing.
That is where I come in.
I am passionate about partnering with women to feel more confident and empowered in their lives. I believe that all women can create the life they want without fear, anxiety and negative self-talk stopping them in their tracks. I believe that women can achieve great things and be wonderfully imperfect at the same time. I started Grit and Grace to create a space for women with grit and determination who are ready to live a life filled with grace. They are ready for change.
I bring a diverse set of experiences to my practice. Before I became a therapist, I worked as a consultant in the tech industry, as well as a life coach who supported women in achieving career success. I received my LCSW and have spent the last 10 years supporting a wide range of clients struggling with personal and career issues, stress and mental health disorders.
I really enjoy getting to know my clients, giving honest feedback and partnering with them as they grow. My clinical approach is behaviorally and forward focused. I strongly believe that you can get to a place that is beyond survival mode where you won't have to use so much energy trying to prove your worth and fend off critical thoughts. You will find it easier to show the world your real self and be comfortable with vulnerability. With new skills you can decrease your anxiety, increase self compassion and navigate challenges more easily.
