Anita is a Marriage and Family Therapy trainee at Journeys counseling ministry. Anita is currently working on her M.S. in Clinical Psychology at Vanguard University. Her background of being born and raised in Kenya, as well as living in various nations around the world led to her moving to the United States for her college and graduate education.
Due to her living and serving in multiple nations with populations that were diverse in age, socio-economic status, religious belief, race, culture, and gender, she has deep compassion, awareness, and understanding toward these diversity issues, plus life transitions.
Anita uses a client-centered approach in therapy. She is driven by empathy, building an authentic working relationship with her clients, and meeting her clients where they are at. She strives to continue providing a safe, non-judgmental, and affirmative space.
Anita enjoys learning about new cultures, reading novels, going on long walks, and trying something new whether it be a new food or an experience.
