Ania Scanlan, JD, MA


I work with couples and individuals who seek help with creating lasting connection in their relationships, who want to get back on their feet after affairs or divorce, who want to build their confidence, and those who are tired of the same old stuff, want to take life by its horns, and stand up for themselves and for their relationships.


I’m a therapist, a lawyer, and a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT-200).  I have a no-nonsense, direct, yet compassionate approach to therapy.  I am even-tempered and provide a safe space without judgement.

I am a native Polish speaker and enjoy working with Polish immigrants and folks of Polish descent.

My place in our therapy relationship is to help you find and develop the power that lies within you, so you can create the life and the relationships you want.

I live with my family and a Siberian cat named Misiu in a northern suburb. I love to garden in the warm months, read books, and get some sun, especially if it’s by an ocean.
