What clients say about Rita
"Thank you for your words of wisdom and encouragement. In my worst times AND my best times, it is your voice I will hear in my head. Thanks for your perception & guidance in my mission.
With gratitude, Jane"
I provide both short term and long term psychological therapy for adults and adolescents, as well as psychological assessments.
Depending on your needs and the particular issues, I will design my interventions to better fit with you whether you are coming to see me as an individual, a couple or a family. I have particular experience in working with the people who are experiencing stressful and conflictual family lives, parenting challenges, feelings of anxiety and depression, physical complaints, emotional problems or disordered eating patterns.
Therapies are selected based on the kind of difficulty you are facing and what scientific research shows is most effective.
In case you are still unsure if I am the right therapist for you, I offer a brief (30 minutes) free consultation so you can meet me in person. This consultation would be about getting to know each other to make it easier for you to decide.
All my therapy services are provided in a quiet, comfortable room at 14 Cobblestone Lane, Hillcrest, Auckland. We are easily accessible via motorway and public transport. Free parking is available in front of the house or on the driveway. Click here for a map and location details.
