Anita Gushurst, LMHC

I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Washington and have been practicing
since 2011. I have experience working with individuals who struggle with anxiety,
depression, trauma and loss, relationship issues, ADHD, parenting support, learning
difficulties, and developmental disabilities. I have specialized training and experience
working with children, teens, and families. In session I use an eclectic approach to
therapy that is tailored to the needs of the individual client or family system in my office.
I generally combine Attachment and Client-Centered Theory in practice and I frequently
use CBT and EMDR in session. I view therapy as a collaboration between client and
therapist to address specific concerns. I hope to assist clients in practicing more
mindful, and authentic ways of connecting with those that they are in relationship with. I
strive to help individuals not just cure symptoms, but to help them thrive in all areas of
their life.
