   Anita Henrichson is a Licensed Professional Counselor who counsels children, teens, and adults.   Concurrently since completing her Master’s in Behavioral Sciene degree in 1997 and receiving her LPC license in 1999, she has had a wide spectrum of professional experience in children’s play therapy, individual and group therapy, mental health evaluations, home study evaluations, marriage and family counseling, and experience as an expert witness for the judicial system.  Anita takes a Person Centered Approach within her therapy sessions while she specializes in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy blended with Solution Focused Therapy and Client Education.  “Since emotions, thoughts, and behaviors all influence each other as well as our personalities and past experiences, I find these specific approaches and techniques extremely beneficial within the counseling experience,” Anita stated. 
 After receiving her Bachelor of Science degree from Phillips University, Anita taught first and second grades in the public school system for five years.  Then, she obtained her Master of Behavioral Science degree from Northwestern Oklahoma State University while counseling under supervision for a number of years. Afterwards, she opened a successful, private practice in Oklahoma from 1999 until she moved to Texas in 2012.

​Anita is a wife and a mother who values her family.  "Life is a journey.  Some of my journey has been smooth while other parts have been a rocky road.  I am a breast cancer survivor, a survivor of an emotionally, abusive marriage which ended in divorce over 17 years ago, lost my father to Parkinson's disease, raised three children as a single mother for 12 years, and am currently a wife and a step-mother to four, wonderful kids.  The Lord has blessed me throughout my entire life, and he has carried me through difficult times."
 Abuse, addictions, adjustment issues, anxiety, bullying, children of divorce, depression, divorce, eating disorders, emotional issues, family problems, fear, grief, guilt, life changes, mood disorders, obsessiveness, parental alienation, perfectionism,personality disorders, rejection, relationship issues, relaxation techniques, self-esteem, self-loathing, sexual issues, shame, spiritual issues, trauma, and women’s issues are all subjects Anita has counseled during her many years in the counseling profession.
