Anne Handley

LCSW

Anne was born in Houston and received her MSSW with a specialty in Gerontology and Health from the University of Texas at Austin in 1995. She has worked in long term care facilities, home health care, and medical hospitals and spent over 26 years providing outpatient and inpatient psychiatric care at St. David’s Pavilion and Austin Lakes Hospital. Anne collaborates with clients to learn more adaptive responses to life transitions and cope more effectively with painful emotions such as sadness, worry, loneliness, and/or grief. She believes that once clients gain (or regain) a strong, positive self-regard they can live a life free from constant overwhelm, self-doubt, and regret. She has enjoyed assisting the Austin community of older adults and has volunteered with Family Eldercare and the Alzheimer’s Association throughout her career.
