building healthy relationships from the inside out
Life is all about relationships – with your partner, family, friends, colleagues, peers and, most of all, yourself. Relationships can be complicated and challenging at the best of times; knowing how to navigate and negotiating your journey through them, beginning with the self, is key to building healthy relationships with others. Are you ready? Let’s do it!
I listened to the “Ask Anita Astley” hour on FMP Radio Anita’s on fetishes and was immediately captivated by directness and knowledge. She says it like it and is totally relatable and likable. I appreciate her sense of humor and most of all her energy. Thank you, Anita, for helping me to learn about fetishes from a psychological and relational level. After years of living in shame and guilt for years over my foot fetish, listening to your expert advice, empowered me to open up to my partner and talk about it. I feel so liberated!!! Thank you, girl! Keep helping me and others in this world.
I have been watching and listening to Anita Astley for a few years now. Her style of addressing complicated and often embarrassing topics is what initially drew me in. She delivers helpful information with a bit of boom! Through watching some of her videos and Instagram Lives, my toolbox is now better equipped to deal with my relationship challenges, in particular a recent divorce. I try to model myself after her. Love her vibe and playfulness, and most of all I admire her confrontational style. She doesn’t tolerate any bullshit! Thank you, Anita! Look forward to seeing you on national programming soon.

I was initially drawn to Anita’s videos on social media because of her style of communication. She seems to make it OK to talk about anything and everything. I was impressed with her credentials as it seems everyone is a self-proclaimed expert on social media these days. I remember reaching out to her and asking her if she was a “real therapist” to which she sent me her Psychology Today profile. On top of it all, she’s quite entertaining and not afraid to drop the F-bomb. Love it!

‘I am a woman Phenomenally. Phenomenal woman, that’s me.’ A perfect quote by Maya Angelou to describe Anita Astley. Achieving a successful career, a wonderful loving family, a bubbling social life, and many faithful social media followers cannot satisfy this remarkable woman. She will always strive for more! She not only talks the talk but also walks the walk. Anita shares her past experiences and expertise, and actual solutions for you to improve your relationships; as she would attest, ‘always from the inside out.’ I know having sent patients to her that she is truly a gifted psychotherapist.

"everything starts with a conversation,"
Is a mantra adopted by Anita after having spent most of her childhood being told to shut up and sit down. After overcoming her own challenges and helping others do the same over the last 25 years, Anita is taking her message beyond the confines of her office to the national stage via television, podcasts, radio, speaking engagements and various social media platforms. Ask Anita Astley and learn to build healthy relationships from the inside out. As Anita famously shares “our mental health hinges on the quality of our relationships and when our relationships suffer, our mental health suffers.”
