I am a therapist with an employment history in the active-duty military, corrections, and public health. I provided values focused, self-enriching, strength-based therapy to clients with relationship issues, parenting issues, trauma history, anxiety, and depression. In therapy, I will teach you about what is happening in your brain, develop skills to manage the mind you have, and techniques to stay on the course of healthy living. I use a model of therapy called acceptance and commitment therapy alongside principles of cognitive therapy, behavior focused therapy, and motivational interviewing. Through a collaborative process, we can explore and address the underlying causes of problematic behaviors, beliefs, and feelings, and together we can begin the process of healing.

We've only had a few sessions with Annita, but she has been great to work with and very helpful.
She really knows what she is talking about. She comes across an expert. She explains her clearly so I can understand. She has really good energy and made us feel really comfortable.
We were very impressed with Annita in our first session, explained concepts really well and clearly - was able to have a good understanding of the issues etc with minimal discussion etc a great energy! :D
