My name is Annie von Gillern. I am trained as both a clinical social worker and a collaborative attorney. I operate a private therapy practice that focuses on supporting teenage girls and women who have experienced significant trauma, domestic abuse, or have been involved in family law litigation. I also represent children as an attorney, Guardian ad Litem, and perform custody evaluations and Child and Family Reports for custody matters in District Court.

I am a mom to four small people and have experienced a division of my household due to divorce as well. I have seen the effects of divorce from all sides as a child of divorce, parent in divorce, and a professional working with families. My goal in each of these things is to help children and parents heal as they grow into their new normal.

I enjoy presenting and teaching about issues related to trauma, ethics, and co-parenting. It is my sincere honor to walk with families as they experience these significant life changes and to hold space for them as they heal and launch into their new lives.
