Meet Dr. Anita

I work with business owners, professionals, and leaders, providing realistic, intentional solutions to solve overwhelm, frustration, and stress.

You may struggle with uncertainty or overwhelm either personally or as a leader:

Hi, I am Dr. Anita Marchesani!

I am motivated to partner with you toward emotional, physical, financial, and spiritual health and well-being.

Leading your career/business, your life, and your family as a healthier and whole person results in a meaningful, productive, and peacefully satisfied existence.

I entirely dedicated to YOUR PERSONAL and BUSINESS SUCCESS.

I can show you how to achieve those objectives, having been helping clients reach these goals for over 30 years.

You CAN do this.

My role is to do what you need to...

When you start pursuing your potential and developing yourself fully, your entire world improves – you have more quality time with your children and family, you have a greater sense of fulfillment, you advance towards the goals that are most important to you (maybe you want to grow your business, have better work-life balance, stick to a diet and exercise program, or simply have more enjoyment and contentment in life).

I has seen these transformations happen with both therapy clients and with coaching clients since 1992. One person rising up and CHANGING has a huge ripple effect.

That’s what I want for YOU! When YOU rise up, you raise up countless others along with you.
This is why YOUR SUCCESS is my business. There are thousands of resources that give you the specific actions and steps to grow in different areas of your life. I have spent tens of thousands of dollars on them to help YOU.

But none of these resources give you the most important thing of all – the scientifically-based and PROVEN skills and strategies to DO THEM. We all put barriers in our way – we feel overwhelmed at doing even “simple” things.

If you have ever wished you could have someone or something in your life that would help you get over the “head stuff” and your mental barriers – you’ve found it!

Here are some ways Dr. Anita’s clients and program participants have described her:

“Great business sense, intelligent, understanding”

“Had a significant impact on me.”

“Knows how to help me make money by getting over my ‘stuff’”

“Thorough and easy to work with”

“Insightful, resourceful, inspiring”

“Trustworthy, real, totally focused on ME”

“Creates an arena of personal development to break through habits of misplaced thinking”

“Standard of excellence, understands what I’m going through”

“Realistic and trustworthy advice and information”

It’s YOUR time.

Together, let’s get you equipped with proven and trusted support, skills, information, and get emotions, stress, and overwhelm out of the way so you can have the life you really want.

Dr. Anita’s official biography

Dr. Anita extended her professional work into an unofficial Christian ministry called Be Still. She teaches people how to fuse the work of Jesus Christ with the best of psychology to walk in freedom from emotional hurts and pain.

As a (retired) Licensed Psychologist, she has extensive experience working with a wide range of people providing many types of services, including:


Providing psychological assessments to children and adults

Working with individuals having severe mental illnesses

In-depth work with people suffering from anxiety and depressive disorders

Area of specialization: the psychological impact of physical disease (including chronic pain, heart disease, and cancer)

She completed an internship and post-doctoral fellowship at the University of Maryland Medical System in Health Psychology and was eventually hired as Clinical Faculty at the school.

Dr. Anita’s adjunct teaching experience at Hood College and York College of Pennsylvania rounds out a wide breadth of professional experience.

While she no longer provides therapy services, the unique combination of her education, training, and background influences all of her work.

Her regular continuing education requirements ensure that Dr. Anita remains at the forefront of current research and the “best practices” for supporting change and growth in the people she serves. Her clients benefit from this fusion of perspectives

Personally, Dr. Anita and her husband recently moved from Pennsylvania to Florida. She has been happily married to her husband, Frank, since 1991, and she homeschooled her two now-grown sons.

She has traveled to India, various countries in Europe and the United Kingdom, and Mexico. She and her family schedule “adventurous” vacations of hiking in the southwest USA, as well as restorative trips to the beach. When they are not traveling, they are dreaming of where they will venture in the future.

Her hobbies include constant training and research to improve her skills, exercise, reading history, autobiographies, fiction (suspense), and always pursuing sound theology.
