I am a licensed Marriage & Family Therapist with extensive experience working with children and adolescents along with their families, as well as with adults individually. My approach is strengths based, solution-focused, with a clinical focus on treating anxiety and depression. Her therapeutic strategies include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) techniques, Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) and Family Systems Theory. Rita provides an inclusive and affirming environment and is able to make strong and meaningful connections with her clients.

I live in West Hartford with my partner and our son. We are rooted in this community and I feel lucky to be able to live and practice here in such a wonderful setting. I am currently offering tele-health sessions.
