When you’re surrounded by people who share a passionate commitment around a common purpose, anything is possible.

Anna Saviano, LPC, Brookside KC Therapist

Anna Saviano is a clinician and consultant in Kansas City, building her best life through private practice and entrepreneurial exploration. She is an enneagram one, a mom, a podcast junkie and process geek. Finding or forging the right work path, combined with community involvement, family and friends are some of her faves!

Using over a decade of clinical experience and training, plus (let’s be real) all the life lessons, Anna will assist as you explore career options, discover your highest values and meld it all into the life *you* want to create.

She utilizes the wisdom of the enneagram as well as a library of curated podcast episodes to answer both the existential and the employment questions. Curiosity and connection are her driving forces- she believes in big ideas and baby steps.


Anna Saviano graduated Drake University with a BS in Psychology, minoring in women’s studies and sociology. Upon returning to Kansas City, Anna earned an MA in Counseling and Guidance from UMKC. Now, Anna is a Licensed Professional Counselor and has continued her education with training in DBT (Dialectical Behavior Therapy). Additionally, Anna is certified in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing). Currently, she specializes in patients struggling with trauma, Borderline Personality Disorder and PTSD.
