Anna De Filippi, M.S., LPC-A
Supervised by Dr. Felecia Powell-Williams, LPC-S
Anna De Filippi is a Licensed Professional Counselor-Associate supervised by Dr. Felecia Powell-Williams, Licensed Professional Counselor-Supervisor, a Child & Adolescent and Adult Training and Supervising Psychoanalyst at the Center for Psychoanalytic Studies in Houston, Texas.
Anna’s clinical focus is on childhood, adolescence and young adulthood. She takes inspiration from Françoise Dolto, French pediatrician and psychoanalyst, who put trust at the forefront of her life’s work with children: “For its development to be sustained, the child must be considered in relation to what lies ahead and trust be placed in the adult it aims to become.” Anna’s approach is client-centered, building therapeutic rapport by listening to the radical uniqueness of each client’s story, case by case.
Anna’s passion for working with children and adolescents began during her undergraduate degree at Reed College (2007-2011), where she was a K-12 art educator for the university art gallery. Art is now central to her clinical work with children, in addition to play. Anna has experience in treating ADD/ADHD, PTSD, anxiety, panic, depression, suicidal ideation, as well as bipolar and schizophrenia diagnoses. She has also supported clients through life transitions due to grief and divorce. She is certified in trauma-informed crisis intervention from the Houston Area Women’s Center.
Born in Canada, Anna has lived and traveled around the world. She holds degrees in Art History, Philosophy, and Clinical Mental Health Counseling. Anna is a member of the Lacanian Compass group. She speaks French and is currently learning Spanish and Greek.
