About Me

anita portait_scarf


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!


Warmly, Anita



My Story


Eight years ago, I followed my dream of starting my own practice called Harvest Your StrengthsI 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:


  Feel Better

  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 therapy 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 have a good grasp of who you are, but are feeling lost and stuck in indecision, I can help you get on track.We explore your dreams and life goals, access your strengths, break through your blocks and increase your confidence. 


Harvest Your Strengths Coaching  is designed to help you:
