Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time   Thomas Merton


The purpose of art is washing the dust of daily life off our souls               Pablo Picasso

About Anna

Anna started her creative career at a young age.  A virtuoso of painting, performing on stage, and singing, she draws on her talent throughout all facets of her practice.

She is committed to understanding art and psychology and how all aspects of the therapeutic process are interpreted by the eye-of-the-beholder.  As an art therapist, she believes that if you empower people through art, they will see the world and their environment from a fresh perspective.

Viewing her role as being part of a team, Anna is dedicated to understanding the challenges of others through creativity.  She delves across all barriers to help her clients identify valuable insight.

Anna received her Masters in Art Therapy, at the renowned Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College, and her BA in Studio Art and Psychology at the University of South Florida.  She is fluent in English, Spanish, and Italian.  She is a nationally registered Art Therapist (ATR) and is currently pursuing her Board Certification (BC).

A native of Rome, Italy, Anna lives with her husband in St. Petersburg, FL.  She is the proud mother of two - a son and daughter.  → Resume
