Why Anna Sherman chose to be in the helping profession
Hello, I'm Anna, a Registered Psychotherapist, Maternal Health Practitioner, and Clinical Supervisor. I chose the helping profession because I believe everyone deserves support during their challenges. Drawing from my own experiences of healing and overcoming difficulties, I wanted to extend a helping hand to others on their journeys of growth and self-discovery.
Life can be tough, and my aim is to empower you to embrace true emotional and physical intimacy, establish authentic relationships, and find fulfillment in your personal and professional pursuits. Together, we can work towards these goals, navigating the obstacles that come your way while building a foundation of resilience and well-being.

I guide clients on their journey of healing and overcoming trauma, while also helping them navigate fears and emotional blocks within their lives and relationships. My goal is to empower clients to become their own advocates, providing them with the tools they need to navigate challenges. By employing a range of therapeutic techniques, I work collaboratively with clients to help them overcome obstacles. I firmly believe in the strong connection between the mind and body and am dedicated to promoting self-help and wellness. Taking a holistic approach, I assist clients in developing resilience across all areas of their lives.

Anna Sherman's experience working with the Jewish community
My professional path has led me to work extensively within the Jewish community, where I've had the opportunity to engage with individuals and couples from diverse backgrounds and varying levels of religious observance. This experience has given me invaluable insights into the unique challenges, values, and dynamics that shape the lives of those within the community. Guided by a deep respect for these intricacies, I've tailored my approach to meet the specific needs and goals of each person and couple I have the privilege to work with.
I've walked alongside individuals and couples on their journeys, fostering an environment of openness and understanding. My interactions with the Jewish community have enriched my understanding of its diverse fabric, and I'm dedicated to providing a supportive space where individuals and couples can explore their experiences, emotions, and aspirations. By honoring the uniqueness of each story, I aim to contribute positively to the lives of those I serve within this vibrant and multifaceted community.
