Anna Kreiter, PsyD
Dr. Anna Kreiter is a licensed psychologist in the state of California (PSY32312) with experience working with individuals across the lifespan. She specializes in working with adults, adolescents, and families who struggle with eating disorders, anxiety and mood disorders, OCD, and experiences of trauma. Often, her clients are navigating challenging life circumstances or have identified something causing distress or interfering with their goals. Her clients benefit from time and space to explore and share their inner experiences in a supportive and nonjudgmental therapeutic relationship while working collaboratively to identify recurring themes and patterns, and modify those that no longer serve them.
Dr. Kreiter’s approach is warm, empathetic, and focused on behavioral changes, growth, and solutions. She recognizes that participating in therapy takes courage, and emphasizes collaboration while tailoring treatment to each individual and family, understanding that every client is an expert on their unique experiences and that therapy is a partnership.
Dr. Kreiter provides evidence-based treatment for individuals, families, and groups. She integrates Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) with a primarily cognitive behavioral (CBT) framework. She practices from a weight-neutral, Health At Every Size (HAES) ® perspective to support clients in healing their relationships with food, body, and self. She has specialized training in Family Based Treatment (FBT) for eating disorders, Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP), Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT), and uses these techniques and modalities to help my clients get “unstuck” and grow. In addition to her clinical practice, she is actively involved in research at the Stanford University School of Medicine, and integrates the most up-to-date findings to support clients’ wellbeing and healing.
Dr. Kreiter earned her doctoral degree in clinical psychology at the PGSP-Stanford PsyD Consortium. She completed her predoctoral internship at the University of San Diego Counseling Center, where she focused on issues of young adult development, and her postdoctoral residency at Kaiser Permanente Redwood City. She is a staff psychologist at Kaiser Permanente Redwood City, where she focuses on the treatment of anxiety, eating disorders, and stabilization for acute psychological concerns.
