Ann Adams

(LMHC, NCMHC)

About Me

I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor licensed in Florida and Rhode Island with over 30 years of experience working as a psychotherapist and often my work as a life coach. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, stage of life changes. I also worked for many years in the field of addictions.

My counseling style is sensitive, warm and my clients get feedback. I come from a person -centered approach which involves treating my clients with respect, dignity, and compassion. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral mindfulness, with solution -focused processes. I believe it is important to set at least one goal on the first visit. My clients enjoy the challenges presented in sessions and find the changes they make are the changes they seek, it just wasn't in their conscious thoughts. But, they usually have the answers and just need help finding their way to the change they seek.

Seeking help is difficult, we have to admit to ourselves that we can't figure this problem out alone. Or maybe, we just want to improve our quality of life and become more productive, more independent, more powerful! People seek help for many reasons. Helping people is my passion. I love to see the changes my clients can make within weeks of starting therapy sessions. The committed client can accomplish their goals, they just need to remain committed and focused on their goals. I help clients to learn how to do that.

I hope to start working with you soon! How can I help you?

I really loved working with Ann. She gave me great advice and listened really well to my issues. I never felt like I was judged and she really helped me reevaluate my life as I was going through a rough relationship patch. I’m not out of the woods yet, but Ann has given me the tools to get better and has been a great support.
