Anita D. Cohn, MSW, LCSW Holistic Therapist
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker licensed to practice in Missouri. I’m a leading therapist with interracial and interethnic issues.
I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from Webster University and received my Master of Social Work from St Louis University.
My diverse work history includes directing a homeless shelter for pregnant women with chemical addictions, a counseling program designed specifically for women being abused by high profile spouses/partners and working with women suffering from post-partum depression through St. Louis University.
Due to my diverse professional background and my own interracial family, specializations in my private practice include interracial/interethnic relationships. Adoptees within interracial/interethnic families are prevalent in my practice.
I provide consultations to various groups on trauma, stress, anxiety, and depression.
My approach to therapy is to use my skills to help you develop inner resilience, and the self-confidence to direct your life. It is my hope that through my guidance you allow yourself the opportunity for healing.
Many successful treatment plans will utilize a foundation of cognitive-behavioral therapy, and EMDR, then quickly move toward a tailored treatment plan and approach that includes tools to help sustain the growth experienced in regular therapy.
Additionally, there is a growing body of research that supports the practice of self-compassion and mindfulness in psychotherapy. Neuroscience research reveals individuals that practice these techniques are happier, more resilient, and better equipped to heal painful memories from the past. It is my honor and mission to help my clients move past what’s blocking them from reaching their full potential individually and in their relationships.
