Annise Koops, LLMSW
Annise is a master's level social worker with over ten years of experience companioning with people in various life situations and she provides services primarily for adolescent girls and women.  Her keen perceptive nature will help you identify root concerns so that you can take the steps toward healing and wholeness. Her work in adoption and death loss has given her the knowledge and understanding of trauma, grief, and loss that she can pass along to others who are hurting. Relying on her professional training, natural love of learning, and broad personal experiences, she will bring authenticity and warmth as well as a new perspective and ideas to bear on your own circumstances. Her practical yet Christ-centered approach will help you navigate your particular struggles while keeping your focus on your loving, redeeming God. 

Annise’s specific areas of knowledge and experience include: grief and loss, life transitions, relational dynamics, as well as anxiety and depression.
