Meet Anne!    Anne Kosem is a Provisionally Licenced Professional Counselor and an adolescent/adult therapist with Step By Step Counseling. Anne is under the supervision of Katherine Schwenke #2014040796. She enjoys working with ages 12 years through adults, and with couples. Anne joined our team as a graduate-level intern and has stayed with us after graduation. She is dedicated to helping teens, young adults, and adults (including parents and couples) navigate personal difficulties collaboratively. Anne understands that struggles can arise in any area of life. Sometimes those struggles arise in our family and relationships, other times the barriers we encounter are rooted within ourselves.  As a counselor, her goal is to provide her clients with the guidance, tools, and support they need to move forward in life with confidence.  She welcomes all couples and/or families who are experiencing conflict or discomfort in their relationships.  Her methods are based off EFT (Emotionally focused therapy) with the understanding that all need to feel seen, heard, and needed before they can trust.
