Anita Dacanay is not currently accepting new clients.
My clients include adolescents and adults of all ages. They may experience depression, anxiety, disordered eating, poor body image, trauma, chronic stress, grief, relationship issues, trouble navigating life transitions, or other human struggles. They may have internalized negative messages about themselves from a history of abuse or as a result of being part of oppressed or marginalized communities. They are searching for tools to help them cope with challenges and build a life that is richer and more rewarding.
My integrative, humanistic approach utilizes techniques and interventions from person-centered, existential, narrative, creative arts and gestalt therapies as well as mindfulness-based cognitive behavioral therapies, particularly Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). I use a collaborative, creative and individualized approach for each client.
I believe that a successful counseling experience starts with an open, authentic, and supportive relationship between counselor and client, and I invest deeply in cultivating this connection! I strive to walk gently with my clients as they grow to better understand themselves and build the skills they need to create meaningful lives.
