My Approach to Helping
Raising children often comes with unexpected challenges. In her practice, Anne Roche utilizes a family systems approach in combination with techniques from applied behavior analysis in order to improve family functioning.

Anne’s goal is to offer a safe and nonjudgmental space where all family members can reach their fullest potential.
