Individual & Couples Therapy

A time to become curious. Who am I? How did I land at this place in my life? How do I have a better relationships with myself, my partner, my family & friends? Together we’ll explore your goals, your strengths, & places of growth as an individual or a couple. 


It begins with connection & conversation. We all have places in our lives in which our areas of growth are strengthened through the support of others growing in the same ways. Topics vary based upon expressed current client/community needs.


Gottman’s The 7 Principles for Making Marriage Work workshop is based upon their bestselling book. This workshop will take a couple through each of the 7 principles & strengthen communication skills by identifying what is standing in the way of healthy communication & how to overcome & work through these barriers. Group structure varies from individual couple sessions to small groups of couples in weekly sessions or intensive weekend formats.


Traditional weekly therapy sessions aren’t the right fit for everyone. Busy work & home lives can make weekly session scheduling challenging. A relationship crisis may need a longer time for a couple to understand, process & work through what is happening. The desire to delve deeply & stay in the moments of reconnection needs time to be able to flow naturally. Ideal for couples who wish to deepen conversations & connections.

Providing you with a caring space to share, learn, & grow

We spend our lives seeking healthy, loving connections. As children, we begin this search within our families. As adults, we search for connection with romantic partners & friendships. Sometimes we find treasure, & sometimes the waves of disappointment & hurt wash loving connections away. Embracing the learning & growth in these moments allows you to move forward in loving yourself & others.

Anne Burkart

Embracing the changes in life can be scary-even in the best of times! I believe that as living creatures we are wired to seek connection & support as we move through the seasons of our life. Our ability to connect & our style of attachment begin to develop in our earliest moments of life. The successes & failures of our attachments guide our relationships as we become adults. Our ability to love ourselves & experience loving relationships with others are often impacted by trauma, infidelity, & difficulty managing our emotions in communicating our wants & needs. My unique background in marriage & family therapy,  counseling, education, business, & parenthood allow me to understand many of the challenges relationships face. Whether you are seeking to reconnect with yourself or heal & strengthen your marriage/partnership, I am here to walk this path with you.
