"If you can only be tall because somebody is on their knees, then you have a serious problem. My feeling is that white people have a very, VERY serious problem. And they should start thinking about what THEY can do about it. Take me out of it.” —Toni Morrison

Anne is a white social worker, therapist, and pursuer of racial justice. She is humbled to walk alongside people to help them build relationships that are equitable and provide a sense of safety and belonging all humans need.

Anne earned her Masters in Social Work from Columbia University and completed intensive training in couple and family therapy at the Ackerman Institute in New York City. Her education and experience has been grounded in exploring family, community, cultural, and socio-political contexts to establish patterns of thoughts, feelings, and behavior. This process empowers us to choose what we want to carry forward and what we want to leave behind.

One context that often goes ignored is whiteness. Amanda Yoder and Anne co-created a short-term process group - Examining Whiteness - in which white people confront internalized and systemic white supremacy. We see this process as vital to shedding racial constructs and healing racialized trauma.

Outside of Examining Whiteness, Anne has a private therapy practice in Houston, TX, and is a co-founder of The Second Story Project. In addition to her professional self, she is a mother, wife, daughter, sister, and friend.
