Anita Batuure graduated from New York University in 2018 with a BS in Psychology with a concentration in Child and Adolescent Mental Health Studies. She was a research coordinator at the Mount Sinai Tics, OCD, and Related Disorders program where she worked on several NIH-funded research studies targeting the genetics of Tourettes, OCD, Autism, and ADHD. Currently, Anita is pursuing a doctorate in Clinical Psychology at the Rutgers Graduate School of Applied and Professional Psychology. At Caring Cove, Anita coordinates appointments, assists with program development and completes initial phone screens. She is also available to assist with any logistical questions related to care.
Anita is currently interested in working with children and adolescents suffering from chronic mood and anxiety disorders, children and adolescents with trauma histories, and personality disorders in adolescent and young adult populations. In the future, she hopes to work with underserved populations, especially racial and sexual minorities, and identify ways to make mental health care accessible to those that have been traditionally overlooked.
In her free time, Anita enjoys cooking different cuisines from all around the world, reading and writing fiction, and keeping up with her chaotic cats.
