About

Anita recognizes we all experience challenging times in our lives and mostly we are resilient beings that have strategies to manage upsetting situations well. At times however when there is too much happening in our lives we need assistance to deal with stress, anxiety and depression. Anita will coach you to build on your strengths and provide strategies to cope better. Utilizing Cognitive Behaviour Therapy and Bowen Family Systems treatment Anita will coach you to understand the problem you are experiencing and how it is expressed. The problem or symptom is not in the individual but often a reaction to relationship sensitivities.
Anita is a psychologist that specializes in couple and family therapy utilizing Bowen Family Systems thinking. Symptoms are an expression of the challenges we face in live. Anita will coach individuals, couples and family members to express self calmly, clearly through improved communication, so that family members can readjust and adapt better under stress.
All potential new clients are invited to contact Anita for an initial chat.
