Learn More About Me

Anna Beard,  LPC

Hello from Anna!  I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) who enjoys helping individuals find a place to be seen, heard, and understood while processing challenging places. 

  Outside of the office, I am a stand up paddle boarder, trail hiker and hammock fan.   


Thought-Based Approach

Need help to achieve your goals in life? I use an array of communication skills to provide counseling services that give you the tools for success. In addition to 1-on-1 consultations and group sessions, I regularly host workshops and seminars for personal development in professional settings.


Adults. Teens. Upper Elementary.

Exhale all the pain, find balance, recalibrate peace, know you are enough. I understand how we can get caught in shame cycles; feeling like we are never quite enough. It can drain your energy, passion, impact your relationships and blur your professional life. When we learn to focus on what we need, instead of what other expect of us - we can finally breathe. My desire is to support you during this process of self-discovery and healing, I offer services online -- anywhere -- in the state of South Dakota or in-office in the Sioux Falls Area.

I provide practical, cognitive/emotion focused, mindfulness-based skills to help Adults, Teens and Upper Elementary Children overcome the negative self-talk, process deep emotions, work through trauma and painful memories. I focus on you, create a safe space, while using therapeutic skill sets to help you overcome the anxiety, stress and depressive moods.

We all need a place to rest our weary soul; to feel understood, accepted, cared for; someone to listen. I will greet you with a big smile and welcome you into a quiet space to chat. Low key, private location, not awkward. Supportive environment to be real. To be you.

Individual Counseling & Coaching

 I want to help you learn to live more whole-heartedly, find grace, acceptance and compassion. I work with many personality styles, including empaths, highly sensitive and quiet souls who want to explore their creative strengths. I would like to help you develop tools to achieve a balanced and fulfilling lifestyle; become well-versed at handling issues whenever and wherever they arise.
