Welcome to Anita D. Cohn MSW, LCSW- A St. Louis Specialist for Individuals Who Struggle with Anxiety, Depression, Grief and Weight Issues.


I am a supportive St. Louis therapist and counselor, who  specializes in helping individuals experience a healthier relationship with food. More importantly, the roots of our relationships with food will be explored.  Using my personal and professional experiences helps me to help you. Sharing your thoughts and emotions may be difficult. This is why it is important to feel safe with your therapist. I offer a safe, non-judgemental, warm atmosphere. In my practice I see people who wonder why they experience anxiety, depression and low self-esteem. Most have experienced anxiety over small and large issues since childhood. For example, feeling fearful about attending school. They were afraid of not making friends or being accepted by classmates.  Depression may have begun in childhood also. Did you have difficulty concentrating? How emotionally safe did you feel?  

Most would like to learn how to get rid of their anxiety and/or depression or at least lessen it. There are different ways to obtain similiar results, which is why education is a large component of therapy. Most behaviors that are learned can be unlearned.

"I have battled with weight since my teen years. It seemed as though nothing helped. A friend told me about Anita being a Clinical Hypnotherapist and a Psychotherapist. I saw Anita for a few sessions and she said I would be a good candidate for hypnotherapy. I have lost most of my unwanted pounds and learned healthy coping skills to keep it off.  Sometimes I slip into my old eating patterns.  However, I have the tools to get right back on track.  Thanks so much, Anita."
