Headway

Anita

I am a licensed clinical social worker with over 25 years experience. Every journey is unique and every journey has its trials. We all experience unexpected changes, difficulties and loss; whether it be a death, a marriage , a job or some other hardship.Therapy is a unique way to assist when you are ready to write the next chapter of life's narrative. Specialties include low self esteem, depression, anxiety, grief, post traumatic stress, guided imagery, compassion and fatigue.


I have been trained in cognitive behavioral therapy and in mindfulness. I have worked as a substance abuse counselor and have an extensive knowledge of the 12 steps and other recovery based programs.


My style is person centered and easy going. I approach therapy uniquely as a chance to find the lessons in difficulties and the hidden strengths to be discovered and acknowledged. I believe there is therapeutic value in humor, finding gratitude in the small things, and enriching your spirituality.
