Anita Goller, Ph.D.
I am a licensed psychologist specializing in the treatment of anxiety, depression, stress, and adjustment to difficult life transitions such as illness and loss. My approach to treatment integrates evidence-based cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), mindfulness, and acceptance based modalities. Since 2000, I have had an independent psychology practice in Maine.
Early in my training and career, I gained a wealth of experience working within a variety of mental health settings including psychiatric inpatient hospitals, outpatient community mental health, assisted living, and long-term care. I completed my internship at the SUNY Health Science Center in Syracuse, NY, and a post-doctoral fellowship at the Philadelphia Geriatric Center. I received my doctorate in clinical psychology from the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities. Although I currently focus on working with adults, I have also enjoyed providing psychological services for children, adolescents, and families, and have served as a forensic evaluator conducting psychological and parenting capacity evaluations in child maltreatment cases.
I have trained and qualified to teach Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) through the UMass Medical School Center for Mindfulness (CFM). Pursuing my interest in applications of mindfulness to behavioral health issues, I have also completed an intensive five-day Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) professional training retreat. Consistent with the teachings of MBSR and MBCT, I maintain a daily personal practice of sitting meditation and mindful movement, as well as holding the intention to carry mindful awareness throughout each day.
