"I'm not sure where I'd be without Alexis. Before I started working with her I was frustrated and exhausted -- I had been single for 7 years and was so over dating. It felt like I was doing something wrong but I didn’t know what. Alexis helped me get clear about what I wanted, and made me realize how I was standing in my own way. I honestly didn’t even realize what I was doing was sabotaging my own success. What I liked most about working with Alexis was that she gave me really clear strategies that actually worked. And they didn’t just shift things in dating but in my life in general. I think they made me a better person. I’ve been with my boyfriend for a year now and we just started shopping for engagement rings. Alexis told me in our first session that a few tweaks could really change things - I wanted to believe her…and she was RIGHT!!"

I went to Anna to try to understand how two long-term relationships I had been in broke down due to a lack of chemistry. I was losing confidence in my ability to determine romantic chemistry where it existed. Anna helped me attune my communication with potential romantic partners. She also gave me more confidence to ask questions about lifestyle, romance, and family that I had become hesitant to ask fearing that they would push a potential romantic partner away. I am now happily in another long-term relationship thanks to these improved communication skills. Thanks Anna!
