Hi! I'm Anita, a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with 5 years of clinical experience working as a therapist and wellness coach. I specialize in supportive counseling and psychoeducation for individuals and families related to mental health and medical disorders. I have worked with youth and adult clients with various concerns such as ADHD, relationship issues, family issues, depression, anxiety, career transitions, caregiver support and trauma related issues.
My therapy style is supportive, interactive and collaborative. I combine various perspectives and therapies to address your individual needs and concerns. Most commonly, I utilize cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), the strengths based-perspective, motivational interviewing and other modalities as needed. I will modify our discussions and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
