I know that reaching out for help can be difficult for many people.
I would love to help you on your journey.
I view therapy as both a collaborative relationship and a journey to self-discovery. While we can’t change the past, we can work together to better understand and resolve challenges in your life to promote well-being in your present and future.

Anna Konigsberg, LMSW (She/Her)
I graduated from the University of Michigan with a Masters Degree in Social Work over 15 years ago. Since that time I've had the pleasure of working in many different areas, helping individuals on their journey in life.
After working in foster care, family preservation, providing therapy for those with disordered eating, chronic illness, depression and anxiety, I began my training to work specifically with the transgender community. I am drawn to the strength and resilience I've seen in my clients and look forward to helping you maneuver around the obstacles that may be preventing you from living your most authentic self.
I have a vast amount of experience in helping individuals who are navigating difficult situations. Having worked with diverse populations, I recognize that your circumstances are unique to you and therefore approaching the healing process in a way that incorporates your individuality is essential.
I understand that being a parent of a child, of any age, comes with challenges. Having a child who identifies as trans or non-binary often comes with amplified feelings regarding your child's safety, quality of life, wanting to support and protect them, but not always knowing the best way to do that. For the past couple of years I've had the pleasure of co-facilitating a group for parents of trans and non-binary identified individuals. Through my work with this group I have become increasingly more aware of how important it is for you, as a parent, to have a place where you can feel comfortable exploring your feelings, while continuing to provide unconditional love to your child.
If you think I might be a good fit for you, please feel free to take the next step to set up an appointment with me. Together we can work to establish goals that are realistic to you and your current situation.
I am an advocate and an ally for LGBTQIA+ identified people; their own supports and the larger community. I take a strength-based and warm but direct approach when working with others. I am also very down-to-earth and flexible.
