I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in the State of Florida. I have over 10 years of experience working as a psychotherapist. I have experience in both inpatient and outpatient settings. My experience includes working in the prison system, community mental health, and substance abuse.
The focus of my practice is helping clients who have been struggling with the effects of a variety of issues, including depression, Bipolar, anxiety, stress, personal growth, Relationship issues, Family conflicts, Parenting issues, Trauma, abuse, Grief, Anger management, Self esteem, life stages and transition, and coping with medical illness such as infertility, and diabeties.
I utilize a strengths-based approach and often use a combination of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution-Focused, and Mindfulness techniques. However I use the most appropriate and effective modalities to personalize each clients therapeutic process.
I strive to provide a comfortable environment, encouragement, empowerment, support, a listening ear, and also to equip clients with the tools needed to help manage current and future difficulties. Allowing clients the opportunity to find a healthy path.
It takes courage to take the first steps towards change. I have helped many people who have experienced physical, sexual, and emotional abuse. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you!

I love this counselor. She is kind and encourages me to develop reasonable goals with myself. I feel that she is honest, trustworthy and committed to her cause of helping others.
Ann-Marie has been my therapist for a year now. She has helped me so much, words can not do her justice. She tells you what you need to hear in a kind thought provoking way, and helps you take practical steps to get to where you want to be. She has helped me become a more positive person, who once again enjoys life. With her guidance I have learned to not just cope but thrive.
Ann-Marie is great with communication & listening skills.
Ann-Marie has been wonderful. She keeps it real and doesn’t sugar coat things that I need to hear it, but it’s also not done in a way that I feel awful about my mistakes. She is easy to talk to and gives wonderful advice. I would highly recommend her to anyone.
Ann-Marie is absolutely amazing. I am so grateful to have found her.
She is awesome. She gives it to me straight and gives me great suggestions on how better improve myself.
