Anna Hayden, MA, brings with her a decade of experience working as a mentor, educator, and counselor. Anna values an evidence-based, collaborative, and client-centered counseling style that helps clients to raise self-awareness and see areas of their lives that they’d like to improve through small, achievable shifts in behavior or thinking. Collaborative goal setting is a key part of success in therapy. Anna has experience working with clients of all ages living with anxiety, panic disorder, depression, ADHD, posttraumatic stress, and adjusting to new seasons of life. Working with clients and their support systems, Anna empowers her clients to utilize coping strategies that fit their strengths and interests.
Statement of care: “To me, the counseling relationship starts as an exchange of knowledge. The client shares their lived experience, and I share my knowledge of the evidence-based treatments and interventions that can help alleviate their mental health symptoms. I utilize a biopsychosocial-cultural lens to understand my clients as a whole person and empower them to make changes where they see fit.” Education: Emerson College, BA, Assumption University, MA
Concentrations of study: Cognitive behavioral therapies, youth and family therapies
