My name is Anna Coker and I am the Founder of Northeastern Professional Counseling in Elizabeth City, NC. With a Master’s in Counseling, I am a Licensed Professional Counselor Supervisor and a Licensed Clinical Addiction Specialist.
I never meant for any of that to happen. After a childhood full of true hard-knocks, there was a day when I stood up and asked myself what all this was for. Counseling seemed to be the right answer at the time.
In the in-between moments, I met my husband, Dan, of 11 years and we have the most incredible 5 year old boy, Nicholas Joel. We live in Elizabeth City, NC on several acres of land where we keep Dan’s harness race horses and enjoy daily coffee dates on our patio.
I write. I speak. I counsel, coach, and consult. Bio’s usually go on and on about everything one has accomplished, but truthfully, my greatest accomplishment is living daily in the present moment and everything else flows from there.
Foundational to living, perspective is as important as reality. My true passion is helping people shift perspective (I like to call it shit-shifting) so they don’t suffer. In other words, in a life full of lemons, I’m the queen of lemonade.
