I had the privilege of earning my MSW alongside Ann at CSULB. Her warmth and passion for connecting with people and helping them is infectious. She was at the top of our class, innovative and ever ready to learn.
- I met Ann through a mutual friend and even though we live worlds away now, she has made a lasting impact on my life. Ann is an extremely insightful and compassionate person. Along with her ability to speak clearly and concisely her thoughts, she has the uncanny ability to listen to people and hear beyond what is being said. This is a valuable trait when it comes to teaching and counseling others as she is able to help people see the unseen and know the unknown about themselves and the world around them. This brings me to my final point about Ann. Ann is firm, resolute, committed and hold true to her beliefs, both logically and ethically. Ann would be a valuable asset to any team she is a part of.
Ann is energetic and has a great personality. She is someone I feel comfortable around and want to tell my problems to. She helped me thru my time of need and I can't thank her enough.Ann is highly recommended in my books.
I have known Ann for nearly three years. I have heard first hand from her clients how well she has supported and facilitated growth through her therapeutic practice. Ann develops a healthy therapeutic relationship with her clients and takes an individualized approach to helping them discover their path to personal development.
I am always impressed with Ann's thoughtfulness and compassion. Ann is able to utilize her intelligence to think deeply about the issues that we face in the social work field. When combined with her compassion and dedication to working with and empowering others it is a powerful combination which allows her to work with people in a meaningful and effective way. In Addition, Ann brings a willingness to work with difficult situations and populations. She is not afraid to address clinical or ethical issues. These qualities come together to make Ann a fantastic social worker and someone whom I am proud to say is part of my profession.
Ann was a very engaged, curious, and resourceful student who fully participated and contributed to the professional development and support process of the applied learning in seminar. She was a joy to have in class. She demonstrated a rich respect for learning while she expanded on the real world knowledge that she brought with her to graduate school. I highly recommend Ann as a very competent, skillful, and astute social worker who uses her abilities to the fullest!
I've known Ann for 3 years now and know her to be an engaging, and thoughtful individual. She is very skilled in her trade, but possesses the intellectual wherewithal to succeed in many roles, whether administrative, therapeutic, or even as an entrepreneur. She's wonderful to work with as well.
Ann is a professional, knowledgeable, and caring therapist dedicated to helping the LGBTQIA community. She has a big heart and gives her all to her clients who are struggling being who they are in society.
Ann is a thoughtful, compassionate, highly competent therapist who offers pragmatic advice and direction you can use in the moment, as well as helpful, truly therapeutic space for clients to express themselves and talk through issues, as well as ask questions. I recommend Ann as a therapist to anyone who could use a mix of therapy with practical coaching and problem solving to get through both difficult and complicated times. Her talent lies in being able to hold space for the delicacy of the moment while guiding clients to see the big picture and what they can do in the meantime simultaneously.
