Anna Fleig, MDiv, MA, LPC-A, LCAS-A
You are taking a courageous first step toward making changes in your life by searching for help because it can be scary to look inward to discover what’s preventing you from living the life you want.
My core philosophy is that satisfying relationships are essential to wellness. When you are not in connection with self and others, you may suffer in ways that affects your overall quality of life. Many things can inhibit your ability to deeply know yourself and others.
For some, changing behaviors feels like the most urgent priority in your life. Acting impulsively, abusing drugs or alcohol, harming yourself or others through risky behavior, and withdrawing into technology overuse can be symptoms of life dissatisfaction. For others, learning how to tolerate uncomfortable thoughts and emotions can be the key to unlocking the power to make choices that you feel proud of and lead to living joyfully.
My approach in counseling develops out of my deep empathy with others. I strive to understand what it is like to be you, while at the same time offering a different perspective that may help you navigate your situation and life choices.
I work with adolescents, adults, couples, and parents. Many people desire to discuss problems related to alcohol and substance use, communication skills, and relationship concerns, while others wish to alleviate symptoms related to depression, anxiety, grief, self-esteem and shame, and life transitions. Other areas of professional interest include spirituality, gender, and sexuality. I honor the diversity of human experience, respecting differences in gender expression, sexual identity, race, ethnicity, spirituality, and non-traditional relationship structures.
