Anastasia Titova, LPCC
As a licensed professional clinical counselor (LPCC) I have received comprehensive training in evidence-based psychological modalities, including traditional cognitive-behavioral theories as well as mindfulness, DBT and expressive art therapy techniques. I utilize trauma-informed holistic approaches in my practice, and have treated individuals experiencing a wide range of difficulties, such as depression, anxiety, psychosis, personality disorders, life crises and psychological trauma. I specialize in anxiety reduction, stress management and conflict resolution.

Are you finding it difficult to move forward with your life, not where you want to be, or want to develop skills to achieve your goals? It is often not easy to seek support, however you're already showing a tremendous amount of courage by considering therapy. I believe individuals have unique needs, and I bring both my experience and collaborative skills into treatment. I am dedicated to, and extremely passionate about assisting people to develop more meaning, success, and pleasure in their life. I enjoy working through a strength-based and collaborative approach to help people recognize challenges, identify treatment goals, and develop skills to improve the quality of your life.

I completed my undergraduate studies at UC Davis with a BS in Zoology, focused on behavior. I attended University of Cincinnati School of Medicine for my medical degree and came back to Sacramento for a combined residency in Family Medicine and Psychiatry. I chose the combined practice of Family Medicine and Psychiatry because I saw the impact that psychological concerns had on the health of individuals and how often primary care physicians were not prepared to understand or treat these problems. I maintain Board Certification in both Family Medicine and Adult Psychiatry. I have worked in academic medicine for the past 11 years and have published in the areas of cultural psychiatry, personality disorders, geriatric medicine, pain medicine, and psychopharmacology while also teaching and seeing patients. I see adults of all ages and specialize in treating those with complex medical and psychiatric problems, including people from diverse backgrounds who may not have familiarity with the Western concepts of and approaches to psychiatric illness. I believe in a "whole person" approach to mental health and like to coordinate with other health providers in the care of my patients.
With leadership roles in my early adolescence I came to meet people from varying walks of life and realized the many different internal struggles each person could experience. While obtaining my B.A in Psychology from the University of California, Santa Barbara, this sparked my interest in working with adolescents where I began working as an Intern-Educator with teens and parents to identify abusive love and practice healthy relationship skills. Seeing young adults grow from guarded and apathetic to open-minded and communicative showed me just how much I wanted to help others do the same. I later expanded my experience when I went into my work with Easter Seals Southern California as a Behavioral Therapist for youth with Autism Spectrum Disorders, offering one on one behavior intervention services as well as caregiver support. I have always considered myself an empathetic soul and feel that every person deserves to tell their story and be equipped with the tools necessary to be the best version of themselves. Now at Lifestance Health, I work with providers each day and hope to follow in their footsteps as I work towards a career in mental health, where I can help others move through difficult and trying times into healing.
