As a therapist, HollyAnne loves working with people who are exploring their identity and how they fit in the world. She supports teens, adults, and couples to improve their communication, soften anxiety, advocate for themselves, and make decisions that fit them. HollyAnne considers how the larger system, like family, workplace, and societal expectations play alongside one's personal experience. Sometimes she's goofy, sometimes she asks big questions, and sometimes she's practical, but she always aims to support people in a kind, honest way.

Como terapeuta, a HollyAnne le encanta trabajar con los que exploran su identidad y su rol en la vida. Ella ayuda a los adolescentes, los adultos y las parejas para que mejoren su comunicación, tranquilicen los nervios, defiendan a sus propios intereses y hagan decisiones que les sirven. Durante las sesiones, HollyAnne considera como los sistemas (es decir, la familia, el trabajo y las expectativas sociales) juegan un papel en la experiencia personal. A veces es juguetona, a veces propone preguntas difíciles, y a veces es muy sensata, pero siempre te apoyará de una manera comprensiva y honesta.
