I am a Professional Counselor licensed in Wyoming with over 10 years of experience working in various avenues of mental health. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, psychosis, criminal thinking, and substance abuse. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse.
My therapy style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, client-centered, realistic therapy, psychodynamic and rational-emotive therapy. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs. Most people are highly functional in most areas of their lives, and just have 1 or 2 that cause them problems. No judgement. Just support and commitment to team up with you to help you live out your best life.
It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards change. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you!

Anita is wonderful at moving at my pace with my therapy. She is delightful and helpful without being pushy.
Written on Aug 13, 2023 after therapy with Anita for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, grief, sleeping disorders, self esteem, and anger management
Anita's insight and mastery into the human and it's being is amazing. Her intuitive listening. The questions she makes one ask themselves. The progression going forward in understanding oneself. Anita taught me to look at all angles of a situation and how I am feeling about it. And for this I am very thankful. She is a true professional and an amazing person to connect with.
