Anne Graham, PCLC
Welcome to counseling. I hope taking this courageous step will help you make changes based on what is important to you. I value my relationship with clients, striving to create a place where you will feel understood, heard, and accepted.
I have enjoyed living and hiking in Missoula for 26 years, after growing up in Virginia. I have three children, two of whom are young adults. Before becoming a counselor, I was a Spanish teacher for 20 years, and I still enjoy reading books in Spanish and traveling to learn more about the world and the people in it. I received my MA in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from the University of Montana in 2019 and am a Professional Counselor Licensure Candidate (PCLC). I have had the honor of working with a wide range of clients and enjoy counseling older adolescents, young adults, and adults who seek greater well-being.
I practice counseling from a strength-based approach and have experience with a variety of presenting concerns, including anxiety, depression, identity development, relationship concerns, academic concerns, sexual assault, grief and loss, and trauma. I recognize that each client is unique and is an expert on themselves, and I emphasize collaboration to find the approaches that are most helpful for you. These may include mindfulness, acceptance, Solution-focused Brief Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, feminist therapy, or Existential-Humanistic Therapy. I am also open to incorporating nature, art, and somatic experiences into our work together.
I believe counseling is an opportunity to grow and create meaning out of existing circumstances – finding the resources that are all around us. I look forward to beginning that journey with you.
