Ritu Anand

(MSW, LCSW)

About Me

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker practicing in Florida with over 15 years of experience working in a variety of nonprofit environments with different populations including immigrant families and adults, children with disabilities, college students, families experiencing domestic violence, and adults with severe and persistent mental illness as well as their families. I have a background in community health, crisis intervention, providing individual and group therapy, and helping people break down goals into manageable steps in order to make and sustain change. I've worked with my clients on a variety of issues including: improving communication skills, setting realistic goals, managing stress, managing symptoms of mental illness including depression and anxiety, improving personal relationships, and improving overall health and wellness.

My counseling style is warm and non-judgmental. I am here to provide support to help you manage difficult emotions, identify barriers to goals, and problem solve creative solutions to increase mental wellness. I use interventions such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Mindfulness Techniques, Visualization, Goal Planning, Motivational Interviewing (MI), and Relaxation and Stress Reduction Techniques to help you find ways to self soothe, destress, and increase your overall wellness. I can discuss your unique counseling needs with you so that we can develop a treatment plan catered to your goals.

It takes courage to make steps towards living a more empowered life and I commend you for taking that step. I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Written by M.E. on Jun 01, 2020 after counseling with Ritu for 2 weeks on issues concerning self esteem

I prolonged going to therapy for many reasons but, mostly because of what I've heard people say about it. This was the best choice I made it's much better than talking to friends you're getting professional help and clarity to navigate yourself to the healing and results you desire.

Ritu is a great therapist. She doesn't let me get ahead of myself in my head but still makes me think thought the problem. She was a strong support person through a very trying time.
