About Me

I am a licensed professional counselor and a licensed addictions counselor who has worked, primarily with the forensic population who are currently incarcerated. I am skilled in cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing, and solution focused brief therapy. I am also trained in eye movement rapid desensitization and reprocessing therapy (EMDR), and frequently work with clients who exhibit co-occurring disorders including post traumatic stress disorder and substance use disorders.
Fundamentally, I believe that clients should be in control of their treatment, and have a menu of options available. Mutual respect, trust, and rapport is paramount to my client/therapist relationships regardless of modality.

Reviews

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Anita Adams. We don’t pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.

Written on Sep 12, 2022 after therapy with Anita for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, grief, self esteem, career difficulties, and coping with life changes

Anita is incredibly welcoming and kind. She makes me feel very comfortable during our sessions and she is very knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend Anita!
