"I couldn't heal because I couldn't admit that I was hurt." This is a statement that I personally relate to, and find that it speaks to many first time clients. If you are someone (like me) who values strength, resiliency and a positive attitude you too might be finding it hard to admit the emotional pain of past traumas and their impact upon your daily functioning and relationships.
Trusted relationships are the foundation for achieving personal goals and experiencing lasting emotional healing. The client-therapist relationship provides the privacy, objectivity, and intimacy to safely uncover the deepest parts of our being. Together we can explore ways to be more connected to ourselves and others as we seek to live life to the fullest.

I’ve had such success with Anika that my family has seen the change in me and both of my parents are now in therapy. Thank you to her and better help.

Anika has been such a blessing to me. She is very friendly, a great listener, is always prepared for our sessions, and is very knowledgeable in knowing how to get to the heart of my concerns. She has given very helpful strategies for me to implement in my life and has helped me get through a dark period and help me grow as a person. I would highly recommend her to a friend.

She has taken the time to find out exactly how to proceed with me when I didn’t even know what it was I needed. I have a lot of confidence in her abilities and our progression together.
