About Anne K. Eckman, Ph.D.

I am a licensed clinical social worker who works with pregnant and birthing people -- with a particular specialty in trauma, loss, and healing. I believe in a collaborative, culturally-attuned process -- and integrate mind-body approaches to help explore and shift patterns of distress, and move towards greater ease and well-being.

My advanced clinical training includes being a certified EMDR therapist, a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner (SEP), and a perinatal mental health certified (PMH-C) clinician along with ongoing work in expressive arts and trauma healing. I received my M.A. in clinical social work from the University of Chicago, hold a PhD from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and completed a post-doctoral fellowship in public health at UNC-Chapel Hill.

In addition to my work at Community of Hope's Family Health and Birth Center, I maintain a small private practices. I am licensed to practice in DC, Maryland, and Virginia.
