Professional statement

Anita works with individual adults by Teletherapy in Wisconsin and Iowa, offering convenience and accessibility to a wide variety of people. She uses an eclectic range of treatment approaches designed to benefit the client and the situation, and is trained in Grief issues, Mindfulness, EMDR, plus has taken numerous trainings over her 9 years as a counselor. In therapy, we discuss current situations, health and the client’s life experiences to create a plan for the counseling relationship. Anita believes that the client is the expert of their life and that the goal of all therapy is to arrive at that place where the client can say, “I’ve got this.”

Anita Graduated with an MA in Mental Health Counseling in 2013 from the University of Northern Iowa. After completing her Internship in a Substance Treatment Center, Anita volunteered for another treatment center and started her full time counseling career at a Community College in Cedar Rapids Iowa. She worked with a diverse adult population for over six years, before moving to the Madison Wisconsin area, where she opened a Private Practice.

Previous to becoming a therapist, Anita’s background started with a BA in Finance and several years working in the consumer finance world, as well as with the FDIC and eventually with banking attorneys. After a gap in career to take care of family, she worked in several schools and eventually as a Professional Organizer, which led her back to the career she originally wanted…as a Therapist!

Message to clients

Along every life journey, we seek help for many reasons and reaching out to a counselor makes you a courageous human! Things can happen in our lives that are frustrating, sad, anxiety provoking, exhausting … and just overwhelming. I can help you sort through changes, because even in difficult times and in grief, we can learn about our strengths, what we want and how to get there. You can still find joy and meaning – there is always hope.

Clients have told me that I have a natural ability to connect with them, even when we meet for the first time. I believe every person has the right to pursue what they need by exploring, making mistakes and learning...without shame. I bring a lifetime of experience in various areas from business to professional organizing, which ultimately led to my love of counseling and helping people in the mental health field. I use a variety of approaches tailored to your needs.

Sometimes we need someone to walk with us, hold space and recognize our strengths. I am professional and compassionate, and I hold a commitment to help you experience life the way you want to and therapy the way you want.

I offer Teletherapy in Wisconsin and Iowa for adults of all ages. A free 10-15 minute phone consultation can be scheduled by emailing or texting me.
