Announcement icon I am offering tele-therapy through video and/or phone during this time and I am accepting new clients for tele-therapy.
I am so happy you found your way here. It was not an accident. I want you to know despite what you are going through you don't have to feel this way anymore! My name is Anika and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I specialize in working with women as well as children and adolescents with mental health and addiction issues.
As I have evolved as a therapist, I began fusing more spiritual aspects and mindfulness with traditional psychotherapy. I believe the holistic approach can help clients realize the mind, body, and soul, connection and how they can work in harmony to support healing. I am also a Reiki Practitioner and offer adjunct services.
My goal is to help you work through anxiety, depression, addiction, codependency, and life transitions. The work we do together will be deep. We will laugh, we will cry, and together we will heal. Our unique relationship will guide you on your journey to self-discovery, freedom, and happiness.
