Anita Philip-Johnson holds a Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) from Regis College, a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey, and a Bachelor of Science from Bentley University.

She believes in treating the individual in a holistic manner and making appropriate recommendations. These may include: Complementary and Alternative Therapies (CAM), such as mindfulness and yoga, educating on the importance of nutrition, sleep hygiene, and the use of psychotherapies (i.e. CBT) as an adjunct to medications.

Philip-Johnson has a passion for people. She grew up in Boston. Being the oldest girl in her family, she cared for her siblings from a young age and enjoyed being the nurturer while her immigrant parents were working multiple jobs to provide for the family. As a PMHNP, she has more autonomy than she did as an RN. She is able to diagnose psychiatric illnesses, prescribe medications, and identify holistic approaches for lifestyle changes to ensure ideal health outcomes.

Many of her family members, both immediate and extended, have worked in the healthcare field and encouraged her to pursue the industry. They always talked about how rewarding it was for them to see patients transition from being very ill to having improved outcomes..

Philip-Johnson makes sure that  her  clients understand that she works with them in a collaborative manner with the hopes of gaining their trust and reaching a mutual treatment plan based on their individual needs.

When she isn’t working, she enjoys spending time with her family and traveling to other countries where she meets new people, learns different languages and cultures that allow her to enrich her perspective.
