About this Service

Anita Adjetey (Founder & CEO of Passion Youth Center- has worked with children (4 yrs. & up), college students, and adults for 12+ years. She is particularly interested in advanced training in working with children, adolescents, youth, and young adults who have experienced trauma, displayed at-risk behaviors, or problems with self-esteem, anxiety, depression, as well as training in addressing social skills, relational issues, and career coaching. In addition, she has conscientiously pursued many trainings related to children’s developmental stages and issues, attended various workshops and seminars and gained school counseling licensure, all of which enabled her to construct a solid groundwork for more advanced studies. One of her many strengths is her ability to establish authentic relationships with those she works with, using a person-centered technique. Her style is highly solution-focused, preferring an integrative approach to therapy as the grounds to provide a foundation for building relationships with clients. She has developed a philosophy to listen to and meet individuals where they are, and accept the incongruence that working with children, youth, and adults may bring. She has a great ability to establish authentic relationships with those she works with. She recognizes that an open and honest relationship between client and counselor can produce a positive effect in the therapeutic process and the level of acceptance demonstrated between the two parties. She intends to use person-centered technique, solution-focused and the integrative/systemic approach to therapy as a strength to help provide the foundation for relationships with clients. She exercises empathy, congruence, and unconditional positive regard, and strives to understand the client’s world in whatever way they wish to share. She shows respect for anyone, allowing them to proceed in whatever way is comfortable for them. She strives to reduce anxiety in order to increase engagement and connection, create a safe environment for discussion, and impart knowledge and facts about the various options and their implications. She is an advocate for individuals who are unable to advocate for themselves and her desire to empower disenfranchised people. Her clinical experience has demonstrated her aptitude in providing support and collaboration with community systems to ensure the best client care.
