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.

“When you’re ready the teacher will appear”. That’s what comes to mind when I think of Anita. She is phenomenal at what she does. The space she creates allows you to feel safe to do the work. Beyond grateful for our time together. The nuggets she gave me I will carry and use forever

Anita did such a great job helping me out when I hit a rough patch! She listened to where I was at and did an outstanding job helping me re-frame my circumstances and get a better perspective about my situation.

Beyond grateful to have been paired with Anita. She is by far the best therapist I’ve had. I leave our sessions feeling energized and motivated, which is rare since therapy in the past used to make me feel drained … but not with Anita! She is so knowledgeable and gives great “homework” that also act as tools for me to help manage my anxiety. I really can’t say enough great things about her. I finally feel a sense of relief since meeting with her and I look forward to it every week because of how productive our sessions are :). Very thankful.

I've only had a couple of sessions with Anita but I really think she listens to me and cares.
