Outpatient Therapy Intern
More About Anna Stoppleworth
As a first-year student in my master’s in clinical mental health counseling, I seek to gain insight and experience in a wide variety of areas. I am passionate about working with children. While still in high school, my family adopted a sibling group of three boys. These boys struggle with ADHD, depression, anxiety and sleep issues likely brought on by FASD. I have learned that dealing with FASD is so different than dealing with any of these conditions alone. I hope to work with kids and families to help address and cope with these issues. In addition, I have interest in dealing with those struggling with depression, anxiety, adjusting to major life changes, and stress management.
I believe in open and honest communication with my patients in a non-judgmental manner. I know that often those seeking counseling are struggling with things they would rather not talk about, and I respect those sensitivities by letting them set the pace and get comfortable in our relationship. I seek to understand the whole person from emotional to spiritual and work with them to achieve their goals.
In my free time, I enjoy traveling, playing board games, watching movies, and reading books related to my Christian faith. I also value spending time with my family and friends especially at the lake in the summertime.
