All of her services are provided virtually, and she works with clients from all over the world.
Annie is also an occupational therapist with expertise in children from newborn to five years old. She is extremely knowledgeable and passionate about the healthy development of young children. As a mother, she has plenty of personal experience to reference and strives to make her clients feel safe and supported.
Annie is a huge advocate for quality sleep and views it as the foundation of human well-being. She is serious about the work she does, but likes to do it with a splash of humor. When not chasing Zzz’s, Annie loves spending time with her family (fur babies included), running, playing soccer or volleyball, sipping red wine, and bubble baths.
