About Dr. Anne

Anne Schanz

Dr. Anne Schanz, PhD is a National Board Certified Licensed Professional Counselor offering individual, couple, and group counseling through her private practice in Carrollon, TX.  Dr. Schanz also offers powerful, affordable classes and workshops to eliminate the root causes of anxiety symptoms and depression through self-acceptance and understanding how and why the negative, self sabotaging patterns in our lives develop. Once understood, the self-sabotaging patterns shift rapidly, creating  improved relationships, communications, and healthy boundaries.

While Dr Schanz grew up in a military family and moved often as a child, she has lived and worked in North Dallas since 1974. She has acquired extensive experience as an educator, business professional and therapist.  This unique combination of work experience allows her to assist her clients with their issues in the workplace as well as their personal lives. Her personal life experience includes being a wife, mother, divorcee, single mother, step mother, grandmother, and now, widow.  It has been through her own search for health and happiness that Dr. Schanz has encountered many complementary methodologies and techniques which she has mastered and incorporated for use with her clients.

Dr Anne brings her full life experience as well as her many years of formal training to her counseling sessions and her classes, where she provides practical, interactive and solution focused counsel to her clients.  She specializes in developing self-awareness, unconditional self-acceptance, and collaborative communication skills to allow her clients to reach their full potential and achieve sustainable happiness in the real world.  Among her areas of expertise are relief of anxiety disorders, depression, trauma, substance abuse recovery, and relationship rescue.

The culmination of Dr Anne's extensive and wide-ranging studies is her Clarity Key Method © of transforming fearful living to conscious, present living.  There are 3 components to this transformation.  If you suffer from anxiety and stress, the first step is to learn research-based techniques to conquer your symptoms.  The next step is to learn the Clarity Key Model which  makes it possible to derive the unconscious beliefs that are causing your self-sabotaging, counter-productive, and reactive behaviors and emotions in the first place. Learning to use her model is the fastest and simplest way to change your self-defeating, reactive patterns of behavior and emotion.  The final step is to join a Clarity Group to learn to apply the Clarity Key Method © concepts to your life.
