About Me

Hi I'm Anita V. Gutierrez a bilingual/bicultural Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over 14 years experience in the social work/mental health field. I have worked in different settings with individuals such as pregnant/parenting adolescents, living with HIV/AIDS, domestic violence survivors, family of origin issues, sexual trauma, childhood trauma, those involved with criminal justice system, and CPS referred couples/families. I work from the frame work that everyone has strengths and healthy coping skills that they need to discover or rediscover to live their best lives.

It is an honor to work with those seeking to heal by focusing on their recovery. I assist my clients in identifying their treatment goals and work to achieve them by working in a collaborative manner throughout the therapeutic process. I am ready whenever you are ready to reach out.
