Annie Ford

Annie is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT). Originally from North Carolina, Annie earned degrees in Psychology and Human Development from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and later received her master’s degree from East Carolina University in Marriage and Family Therapy. Annie provides therapy to teens, young adults, couples, families, and adult individuals.

Annie specializes in working with teens and tweens who have supportive parents/guardians but whom are facing challenges with anxiety, depression, trauma, self-esteem, self harm, stress, and adjustment to life changes. When minors do not have the supportive, cooperative or stable relationships with their parents/guardians, Annie prioritizes family therapy in order to strengthen the home environment first and foremost.

Annie additionally specializes in working with college populations, couples, and adults who are struggling with adjustment to life changes, burnout, relational conflict, trust, trauma, anxiety and stress. Annie is passionate about serving individuals, couples and families who are part of the LGBTQ+ community, creating a safe place for self love, healthy relationship functioning, and coping with attachment wounds and longings.

Annie views the therapeutic relationship as inherently valuable and aims to create a space to feel secure, understood, and free to explore emotions, thoughts, and experiences. She also views the therapeutic relationship as a space to collaborate and find opportunities for change that feel authentic and congruent with your values. 

Annie utilizes an experiential and systems approach to therapy. She values exploring previous experiences and how they impact the present as well as the impact of the systems that surround us, whether this is our family, neighborhood, state, or culture. Annie aims to work with you in finding a balance of autonomy and connection, as you understand yourself to be inherently valuable individually and in your relationships.
