Aneesa Anderson, M.S., NCC
Social Justice and Inclusion Counselor
I believe a good counselor is one that can meet their client where they are while providing empathy, genuineness, and a safe space to share their story. My approach to counseling is one that is relational, collaborative, and not only understands but emphasizes how diverse each person is. I work from a relational, cultural, feminist, and existential approach. Together we will help you shift from managing to thriving academically, socially, and emotionally. I am passionate about serving individuals within systemically oppressed groups and first gen folx.
My belief is that you already have tools and a toolbox to achieve your goals; I am just here to sharpen and repurpose the ones you have and hopefully add some new ones. I look forward to providing you with an inclusive and safe space as you navigate this current chapter in life and prepare for all that is to come!
