Anita Guajardo, LCSW-S


About Me

Many of my clients identify as burned-out perfectionists, high-achievers, givers, people-pleasers, and "imposters" hoping to ease anxiety, heal trauma, and strengthen authentic connections. I offer support during their quarter-life and mid-life transitions by supporting their goals of breaking free from anxiety, trauma, and "not enough" cycles creating blocks in their life. As a body+mind therapy, EMDR can help heal trauma, release emotional aches, and rewrite painful stories with an empowering message. In our work, we collaborate and map out a holistic, culturally-considerate, and trauma-conscious healing journey to ensure we're moving through the phases of EMDR therapy with intentionality and at a pace that feels right for you. In addition, we tie in practical tools for self-awareness, staying grounded and present, and self-soothing. I also offer EMDR-PRECI, a specialized EMDR approach intended for processing recent, ongoing, and future-related stressors. And because I provide online therapy, we can connect for EMDR therapy no matter where in Texas you reside.
