Dr. Anitra Warrior

Family and community have always been a highly valued part of my life.  I believe this comes from my cultural heritage and how I was raised.  I was fortunate in that I grew up being raised by my grandparents as well as my parents. I spent a great deal of time with elders in our community.  I essentially assumed every person with white hair on my reservation was my grandparent and I addressed them as such.  These relationships helped me connect with many people across our reservation and I embrace the significance of relationships throughout our lives.

I had the opportunity to attend the Little Priest Tribal College in Winnebago, NE.  After graduation, my family and I moved to Lincoln, NE. and I began at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.  I received my BA in Psychology and MA and PhD in Counseling Psychology. I have been able to obtain a great deal of experience in counseling and administration.  I have worked with diverse backgrounds and have been honored to share experiences with the people I serve.
