Practicum Doctoral Student
Anne is a fifth-year doctoral student at Immaculata University, currently working towards a doctorate in clinical psychology. She holds a master’s degree in clinical psychology from the same institution. Prior to joining the Ursinus College Wellness Center team, Anne facilitated group therapy with adolescents as well as adults within a Partial Hospitalization setting where her groups focused on skills training, emotion regulation, and stabilization. As part of her training, she also worked under a pediatric neuropsychologist administering neuropsychological tests and batteries to children and adolescents with a wide range of clinical presentations and concerns and was introduced to alternative medicine approaches. She is passionate about helping clients from all walks of life and believes in collaborative and growth-focused sessions as key steps towards positive change. Anne utilizes an integrative approach to therapy that includes family systems theory and processing the effects of family dynamics, client-centered unconditional acceptance of meeting a person where they are at, cognitive behavioral theory to help clients uncover ruminating thoughts, and mindfulness strategies tailored to each client’s needs. Prior to pursuing her lifelong dream of working in the field of psychology, she traveled globally with academic study abroad programs and then served as an officer in the Marine Corps. In her spare time Anne enjoys reading, hiking, and good conversation with friends over coffee.
