Hi! I'm Annastasia (Anna) and I use she/her/it/its pronouns. I am disabled and queer, a visibly white descendent of scandivanian settlers and carrying ancestry from my black and indigenous blood roots, always learning and unlearning, and extremely passionate! I'm an experienced doula in Amiskwacîwâskahikan (Edmonton) on Treaty 6 Lands, and I'm grateful to be here today.
Annastasia (Anna) Wells is a naturally calm presence. The human body has fascinated it since its youth, when she learned to express herself through such artistic forms as poetry, dance, and therapeutic healing modalities including massage. Anna has some lived experience with trauma, sexual violence, eating disorders, addictions, and both mental and physical health challenges. She really values and works with meditation, self help and behaviour modification groups, dialectical behaviour therapy, wellness recovery action plan, a lot of validation and affirmation, and her amazing supporters to take the concept of wellness into her own hands. Currently balancing quality time with wife, daughter, dog, and plants, providing individualized support and facilitating groups, and tending to the ever-evolving requirements for its own wellness.
