Ann Misel is Licensed Clinical Social Worker who works with adults to decrease anxiety, increase focus and resilience, clarify purpose and meaning, and improve their communication and relationships with loved ones, friends and colleagues. Her practice is open to those adjusting to new challenges and opportunities, facing difficult changes in life, or dealing with existential and spiritual problems. She helps clients with the worry, nervousness, and stress that may be constantly present with anxiety. These feelings of anxiety can get in the way of feeling motivated, successful, or content on a daily basis.
Ann's speciality is working with women to support their well-being, happiness, and fulfillment. She finds it rewarding to help intuitive/sensitive/artistic women discover their innate strength, beauty and wisdom. Ann helps these women with the burdens of self-criticism, self-doubt and perfectionism that get in the way of their goals and desires, and of enjoying their life. Through support and sponsoring of their strengths and resources, clients feel stronger and more self-assured which enables them to achieve their goals in life.
Based on 20 years of experience, Ann utilizes many different approaches including Self Relations Therapy, Mindfulness Practices, Life Coaching, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Hypnotherapy, and Emotional Freedom Technique. These approaches go beyond "talk therapy" and engage mind-body processes to help clients access positive internal resources to put toward solutions. With sensitivity and caring, Ann works to help clients discover strengths and feel better.
