About

Specializing in substance abuse issues, co-dependency and family effects; anxiety/PTSD; panic attacks; sexual assault; depression; trauma; grief and loss; eating disorders and other compulsive disorders--shopping, debtor issues--family therapy and negotiating life transitions; art blockages and allowing oneself to be creative. I work with children, adolescents and adults in individual, couples, family and groups. Demystifying adolescent issues to minimize the tensions for families is a focus. Providing support for those with medical issues including various sensitivities is a specialty. Telehealth: doxy.me/anitalaviola
I have years of experience in the field. Mental health, stress, anxiety, addiction and recovery, the impacts that addiction has on family members. Learning how to cope; how to have courage, strength and hope are vital. I offer compassionate support for LGBTQ youth/ adults. I come from an unconditional positive regard philosophy in my all of my work.
I love being part of people's growth and change process, helping them through life's transitions. I use a lot of humor, art and acting techniques in session. Wellness is how to stay well, physically and emotionally, living a healthy life. Moving forward understanding how to live life in balance is how we thrive and succeed.
