Roxanne

My name is Roxanne Arthur-Shittu. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker practicing as a psychotherapist. I work with individuals experiencing problems related to anxiety, depression and life transitions. I have witnessed the benefits of cultivating self-awareness through mindfulness and meditation with children, adolescents and adults. By incorporating these techniques into sessions it allows individuals to yield the full expression of their inner peace, strength and abilities.


Using trauma-informed cognitive behavior therapy, individuals can gain insight into the connection between their thoughts, feelings and behaviors. Developing this understanding in a safe and supportive environment is helpful in processing experiences of trauma, loss and disruptions within the family, so that you are able to find meaning and foster hope.


In addition, with the use of a solution orientated approach to overcoming life challenges, one can create meaningful and lasting change. I welcome the opportunity to support you with developing and strengthening interpersonal relationships, from a holistic perspective that includes maintaining your emotional, physical and spiritual wellness.
