Fanta Ritchie, LMFT, Marriage & Family Therapist in Lancaster
Feeling stressed, overwhelmed, sad, worried? Have you been through a traumatizing experience, relationship problems, or parenting struggles? I want you to know that you are not alone. Everyone goes through challenges in life but how we cope with our obstacles can predict future success or continued heartache. Although taking the first step towards therapy may be difficult, it can be the beginning of something beautiful. My goal is to work together to provide a safe, empathetic environment where my clients can freely express themselves without fear or judgment.
My passion is serving women, children, adolescents, couples, and families who have experienced trauma. I focus on strengthening relationships and empowering individuals to find their voice through increasing coping strategies with and eclectic approach to therapy. I utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy in addition to mindfulness with a person centered approach.
I have a relatable approach and focus on building a strong rapport as I understand that a trusting relationship is key in any therapeutic environment. I have experience working with children, families, and adults from all different walks of life and am excited to be a part of yours!
