Hi, I’m Anita Mambo Cohn. The longer I do this work, the more strongly I believe everything we need to heal and thrive is deeply rooted within us. I continue to be awed and honored to watch others discover this as they begin to access their inner world.
The Harvest Your Strengths process of unfolding leads to growth and change. The more you see yourself, the more open you become, and the more ready you will be to embark on the journey of harvesting your strengths.
Being the Change Agent in your own life is truly inspiring and transformative!
Eight years ago, I followed my dream of starting my own practice called Harvest Your Strengths. I am honored to have helped hundreds of individuals and couples find their unique strengths and strengthen their relationships. I truly love engaging in this transformative process with others.
I am a Licensed Psychotherapist, a Clinical Social Worker, a Certified Couple and Family Therapist, a Certified Gottman Bringing Baby Home Educator and Coach. I have 20 years of experience working in the social service sector. Before starting Harvest Your Strengths, I held positions as an individual therapist, a family therapist, an after-school educator, and an administrator for youth and families.
My office is located in the vibrant neighborhood of TriBeca, New York City. I live in the beautiful, Hudson Valley with my husband, son, and dog and consider wandering to be one of my most favorite pastimes.
My Therapy Approach
If you are experiencing stress, anxiety, overwhelm, dissatisfaction, depression, loss, trauma or adjusting to life’s transitions, we will work together to understand what is happening and then harvest your inner and resilient strengths to ignite healing and recovery.
If you are looking to strengthen your relationship, marriage or partnership, I can help you to better understand one another and strengthen your bond.
Harvest Your Strengths Therapy
is designed to help you:
Grow Stronger and Wiser
Discover what makes you Happy
Strengthen Your Relationships
Healing is ignited as you:
Get to know yourself better
Discover what within you got you through the difficult times
Understand how you became the resilient survivor you are
My approach is strengths-based, client-centered and collaborative. I draw from contemporary psychodynamic, attachment, behavioral, relational, mindfulness, and family systems theories as well the highly effective models of EFT (Emotionally Focused Therapy), AEDP (Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy), and the Gottman Method.
My Coaching Approach
If you are stuck in indecision and overwhelm, and struggling to find your path, I can help you find and make use of your own unique inner strengths to get you on track. We will work together to establish your goals, and set the stage, so that you can take action toward achieving them.
Harvest Your Strengths Coaching is designed to help you:
Access Your Strengths
Make Use of Your Strengths
Nurture Your Gifts
Increase Your Confidence
