Approach To Care

Dr. Anne Slanina (she/her) is a psychologist whose philosophy is that we all have life experiences that leave us feeling disconnected, distressed, and uncertain about our future. These types of struggles and distress can bring attention to wounds that need healing. She strives to help customers be more attuned to their needs and live authentically. Every customer walks into psychotherapy with the knowledge and experience that makes them the expert on themselves and what they need. Dr. Slanina supports customers as they learn to use these strengths to gain insight and meaningful change.

Dr. Slanina uses therapeutic approaches rooted in cultural humility and relational theories to inform her work with customers. She values transparency and humor as ways to foster meaningful relationships with customers where they feel safe challenging themselves.

While trained as a generalist, Dr. Slanina specializes in ares of grief, trauma, microaggressions, discrimination and oppression, the mental health of refugees, substance misuse and addiction, and other transitions and milestones.
