Testimonials from People I've Worked With

"Working with Annie over the past several years has been the biggest asset to my therapeutic journey. She naturally creates and holds a healing environment that is safe, nurturing, and explorative. With her guidance I have been able to somatically, intuitively, and intellectually explore and continually heal both my inner self and my outer environment. Annie always has and continues to make me feel heard, genuinely understood, and has guided me towards accessing and acknowledging my inner strength. Words can only begin to touch the gratitude that I have for her and our therapeutic relationship. The gift that Annie has is truly her life work, and it clearly shows up in every moment that I have been fortunate enough to spend with her." -K.R. 30 year old female client

Annie is a truly exceptional couple therapist. I have seen so much growth in my relationship, as well as within myself and my partner individually, since beginning our work with Annie. She was gracious to our needs and was willing to work with us online for many of our sessions, as my partner and I are long distance. I feel closer with and better able to communicate with my partner now, and have a greater understanding of his perspective and inner experience. Not only has this work helped my partner and I become closer and work through our own conflicts, but I also have seen my mindset about my needs and emotions shift as a whole. I see myself interacting with friends and coworkers in a more positive and helpful way. I feel more at peace, filled with compassion and understanding, and open to others' needs and perspectives. I recommend Annie hands down for anyone seeking support, clarity, or improvement in their life and relationships. C. & G. -couple client

"I've worked with Annie Vail both personally and professionally for over a decade and have found her approach to be a breath of fresh air in the helping field of psychotherapy, personal growth, spiritual awakening, and self-discovery. She brings warmth, grace, and a professional authenticity into her care for other people, and clearly embodies the "work" of one who has found genuine celebration of life through her own adversities. I have been deeply impacted by her ability to speak with clarity, from both real-life and educational experience and to be embraced by such a giant, kind and compassionate heart." -Carrie Renee Koester, LMT, LPC Intern, Lead Facilitator of Solsara
