About Anna

I'm Anna M. Tepedino, a therapist with over a decade of experience in the field of mental health. I grew up in Colombia and moved to the United States where I completed my college studies and training as a clinical social worker. Houston has been my home for over 12 years.

My approach is rooted in compassion, warmth, and acceptance, tailored to each client's needs. I've undergone training in therapies such as Internal Family Systems (IFS), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and Exposure & Response Prevention (ERP). Currently, I'm expanding my skills with yoga teacher training and trauma-informed yoga certification.

Beyond my professional life, I cherish time with loved ones, express myself through art, and find comfort in nature. My diverse experiences and dedication to growth shape me into a therapist dedicated to support individuals from all backgrounds on their journey to mental wellness.

​I currently serve individuals (18+) and families throughout Texas.
