Anna Stubbs, MS

EMDR Trained Therapist

 

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist Associate
Supervised by Veronica Kuhn, PhD, LMFT, AAMFT Supervisor

Anna believes that counseling is effective in the context of a safe and secure therapeutic relationship and believes this is the foundation for therapeutic healing and progress. Reaching out for help requires vulnerability and can be intimidating. Clients can expect to be encouraged and reassured as they work towards building authenticity and genuine connection in each session. They can expect to remain autonomous in their decision-making while being challenged in a safe and grace-filled environment.

Healing occurs in relationship both inside and outside the therapy process. A client’s relationships, regardless of their dynamics, play an important role in their healing journey and process. Anna strives to see clients within the context of their relational system and holds the belief that a person both struggles and heals within relationships.

Anna’s therapeutic focus and specialties include marriage and family, healthy communication, parenting, and the impact of trauma on the individual and their relationships. She is passionate about helping couples and families find healing and change by developing an understanding of each other’s needs. Anna practices attachment-focused, systemic psychotherapy and Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy (EFT) approaches. In addition, Anna is trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and has training in Trust Based Relational Intervention (TBRI); an attachment-based, trauma-informed intervention.

Anna was born in Tennessee but spent most of her life in the greater Dallas area where she now lives with her husband. Anna Stubbs is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist Associate (203446) under the direct clinical supervision of Veronica Kuhn, PHD, LMFT, AAMFT Approved Supervisor (Texas: LMFT 203022).
