More about me

Licensing: MA, LPC, RPT
Years in Practice: 11
State: VA

Anita Adjetey (Founder & CEO of Passion Youth Center- has worked with children (4 yrs. & up), college students, and adults for 12+ years. She is particularly interested in advanced training in working with children, adolescents, youth, and young adults who have experienced trauma, displayed at-risk behaviors, or problems with self-esteem, anxiety, depression, as well as training in addressing social skills, relational issues, and career coaching. In addition, she has conscientiously pursued many trainings related to children's developmental stages and issues, attended various workshops and seminars and gained school counseling licensure, all of which enabled her to construct a solid groundwork for more advanced studies. One of her many strengths is her ability to establish authentic relationships with those she works with, using a person-centered technique. Her style is highly solution-focused, preferring an integrative approach to therapy as the grounds to provide a foundation for building relationships with clients.

She has developed a philosophy to listen to and meet individuals where they are, and accept the incongruence that working with children, youth, and adults may bring. She has a great ability to establish authentic relationships with those she works with. She recognizes that an open and honest relationship between client and counselor can produce a positive effect in the therapeutic process and the level of acceptance demonstrated between the two parties. She intends to use person-centered technique, solution-focused and the integrative/systemic approach to therapy as a strength to help provide the foundation for relationships with clients. She exercises empathy, congruence, and unconditional positive regard, and strives to understand the client’s world in whatever way they wish to share. She shows respect for anyone, allowing them to proceed in whatever way is comfortable for them. She strives to reduce anxiety in order to increase engagement and connection, create a safe environment for discussion, and impart knowledge and facts about the various options and their implications. She is an advocate for individuals who are unable to advocate for themselves and her desire to empower disenfranchised people. Her clinical experience has demonstrated her aptitude in providing support and collaboration with community systems to ensure the best client care.

About online counseling

Online counseling allows you to receive care from an online mental health practitioner via phone, video chat, or instant messaging. It is convenient for those who may have trouble getting to or would prefer not to have in-person therapy appointments. Ranging from $60 to $90 per week, online counseling is generally more affordable than in-person counseling. A study by researchers at University of California, Berkeley found that online counseling can be just as effective as face-to-face therapy while being more convenient, affordable, and accessible.

I’m super grateful for Anita and her approach to therapy. She has worked at my pace and made me feel comfortable to open up. I appreciate the practical advise and application steps she gives me to ensure I’m gaining insight on how to overcome my challenges. Communication has always been a huge problem for me and although I’m not all the way there yet, I’m grateful for the progress so far!

Anita is caring and intelligent, she always makes me feel heard, respected, and valid. Her advice is based on experience and is both helpful and easily applicable. She responds quickly and professionally. I am so lucky to have found her!

Therapy is a journey and Anita reminds me of this every time we meet - I’m so grateful to her! She understands my needs and is very proactive about suggesting the right techniques to use. Speaking to her is the highlight of my week.

She is amazing. I struggle less and less with my depression because of the tools that she gave me. As long as I continue to do the work I know that no matter what happens I will be OK. It took me a while to get to this point but I’m here because of her. I know there’s more work to be done but with her help I will get there.

Anita is a wonderful woman and has helped me throughout my first experience in mental health counseling. Thank you again for everything, it’s been a pleasure!

Anita has been a great help to me. She has listened without judging me or laughing at my over catastropic thoughts.

D.O.·Sep 14, 2021


Anita, has helped me in so many ways! I have completely transformed as person. She has taught me how to be more self aware and I am at peace mentally, spiritually and physically.

M.A.·Sep 08, 2021


Anita is very responsive. I appreciate her time and it is good to have an outlet. I’m not sure if I was suited with the best counselor fir my needs, however it is easier to remain seeing she is aware of my background and I would be frustrated in restating it to another counselor and losing time. Thank you. Anita has been helpful. Just a message to anyone needing help, get help if you need it.

Anita Adjetey is wonderful and easy to talk to. She is really there for you.

C.A.·May 19, 2021


Anita is a wonderful counselor. She is quick to understand and read the situation. Very mindful and helpful with listening and navigating difficult topics. I feel very safe when talking to her and not judge. I think she is one of the best counselors I have ever had and I have been through a couple different programs. She always responds in a timely manner and is always on time for meetings. Have recommended betterhelp to multiple friends because of my experience with Anita.

Anita was very professional and I was very pleased with my first session.

K.A.·Jan 09, 2021


I have never been to therapy before but Anita made me feel comfortable from the start. The session is very laid back and doesn't feel like an interview but rather talking to someone who wants to listen and wants to challenge me. After just 1 session she has made me think about questions that I push away and that is so eye opening.

Excellent listener

I love having Anita A as my counselor. In comparison to my counselors in the past, I have made the most progress with her. Her honesty and communication skills are top tier and makes it extremely easy to be honest back.

R.I.·Dec 30, 2020


Very professional and able to get to what the issues are and offer very good solutions.

D.A.·Dec 30, 2020


Usually therapy is stressful and feels like homework and I feel like I disappoint my therapists. Anita doesn't stress me out. She doesn't make me feel like I owe her anything. She encourages me when im taking steps towards better health, and consoles me when I mess up

K.A.·Dec 02, 2020

I really enjoy speaking with Anita. She makes me feel comfortable, understands my concerns, suggests helpful techniques/solutions, and has a sincere personality. She is serious when needed and lighthearted when needed as well. I look forward to my sessions with Anita.
