Anna Dobos

My name is Manka (Anna Dobos M.A., R.C.C.) I’m a registered clinical therapist, a relationship, addiction, and trauma specialist.

In the last few years, I’ve been working with award-winning author and addiction specialist Candace Plattor M.A., R.C.C. At LoveWithBoundaries, we work with families on a long-term basis, with a special focus on the loved ones of addicts.

I’m also a yoga instructor (ERYT- 500) and an embodiment coach.

My mission is to help you become authentic and learn how to deal with trauma and challenging issues and people in your life.

I’m a Registered Clinical Counsellor in good standing with the BC Association of Clinical Counsellors, covered by most extended health providers.
