As a National Board Certified Health and Wellness Coach, I create a supportive environment that enables you to articulate and achieve your goals.

Hi, I’m Anna Sandbank. I offer Holistic Wellness Coaching, Mental Health Coaching & Career Coaching to busy professionals in social work, mental health, allied health, healthcare, coaching, non-profit leadership, purpose-driven entrepreneurs and others in the helping professions.

Are you a practitioner or leader in mental health, social work or another helping profession?

You probably don’t want to see just anyone. When you’re a helper yourself, you want to really trust the person you’re working with. You already know first-hand the standards for presence, compassion and competence that are expected. You feel like it would be a relief to work with someone who genuinely understands your unique needs and struggles.

Perhaps you feel like the way you’re living isn’t sustainable. Or necessary. You want to be that professional who walks their self-care talk. You want to have the time and energy to create more balance and harmony in your life. You realize what you’re doing isn’t working and need to find a better way.


Does this sound like you?

Are you thinking, “how does she know?” Been there!

I understand how your career as a mental health or helping professional can impact every other facet of life, but that it doesn’t have to be that way. You can have a career you love AND a life filled with joy, love, meaning, peace and wellbeing.

If you’re ready to give yourself the same dedication and care you provide to your clients, patients and even your own family(!) reach out for your free consultation.


I understand there can be stigma in reaching out. I understand you might feel like you should be exempt from the same “rules” that apply to others.

What would it be like to go beyond occasional self-care toward a reinvestment in yourself?

I use a blend of fully customized approaches and let you lead. I bring my years of diverse experience and training, but you are the expert.

Here are some of the values that inform my approach:

I emphasize the significance of incremental progress, and encourage a mindset of curiosity and experimentation.

I maintain an inclusive, affirming approach that honors human dignity and values diversity. I have worked professionally in communities of color, with people of faith, as well as with individuals and couples who identify as LGBTQIA+.

Through my training and over 20 years of professional experience, I recognize the impact of institutionalized and systemic discrimination, oppression and exclusion on mental, emotional, social, physical, spiritual, professional, and financial wellbeing.

You don’t need an escape hatch. It’s time. Meet yourself right where you are. Just like your clients or patients, you deserve every opportunity to attend to your own needs. You can have a thriving career AND experience all the contentment, harmony and ease you are seeking.

Want even more details?

I am a national board certified health & wellness coach oriented around a whole-person-centered approach to wellbeing. I recognize the interrelatedness of mind, body, spirit, emotions, relationships, environment, career and beyond.

I use an empowering and clarifying range of approaches to help you identify and achieve YOUR vision, goals and priorities. I appreciate the individuality of each client, and use customized, nuanced strategies that are aligned with YOUR needs and reality.

I have experience working with social workers, mental health and other helping professionals from all disciplines and at all stages of career. As a clinician for over 20 years and leader in the field of mental health for over 15 years, I deeply understand the impact of stress, burnout, and overwork that therapists and leaders in mental health and other helping professions can experience.

I attribute my own hard-won wellbeing to the work I’ve invested to align my values, personal development habits, routines and mindsets, with an emphasis on mindfulness, self-compassion, and curiosity. I enjoy time in nature, time with friends and family, and opportunities to grow and expand.
