Anika Stafford

image description

Anika Stafford is a Pre-licensed Therapist in Minnesota who has been counseling since 1999. She has a BA in Psychology from Florida A&M University and an M.S. Ed in School Counseling from the University of Wisconsin-River Falls. Anika’s treatment philosophy is to identify traumas that occurred age 0-7, as she feels experiences in the formative years lay a foundation for negative unconscious beliefs, maladaptive thought patterns, and habits that lead to emotional imbalance. Anika believes in unearthing these beliefs and habits, but not dwelling on them for extensive periods of time. She chooses to move into solution-focused therapies and help the client learn coping skills so their life can start to change. Anika wants to help facilitate the client’s healing, but also help their clients actualize their highest goals and dreams. In her spare time, Anika enjoys wellness activities, using essential oils, studying and practicing spirituality, writing novels, reading, watching science-fiction/fantasy and comedy movies, cooking, sitting in the sun, dancing, walking in nature, and playing board games.
