About Me

ABOUT ME
Hello! I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in the state of Colorado. Though I have traveled near and far, this is my home state. I returned to Colorado because I missed the majestic mountains, crystal clear, blue skies, 300 + days of sunshine, and of course, breathtaking taking views of this state during our snowy winters!

I have been working in the mental health field for over 25+ years. My experience includes working with individuals and their families in a variety of settings; some of those include community organizations, hospital settings, residential, in-home, correctional environment and in the school setting. I have experience with a wide range of clinical issues, which include, anxiety and stress-related issues, depression, attention-deficit/ hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), anger and aggression, intellectual/developmental disabilities, trauma, and abuse issues. Additionally, I’ve worked with those experiencing relationship issues as well as personal finance issues.

My counseling style is client-centered, strengths-based, holistic in nature (solving problems by thoughtful consideration of the whole person) and culturally sensitive. I strive to ensure that I provide an environment that is non-judgmental, and supportive. My approach is eclectic and determined by individual client needs. I will primarily utilize evidence-based techniques such as mindfulness-based cognitive therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, solution-focused therapy, narrative therapy, and family systems therapy.

We all need someone with whom we can share our victories and achievements, as well as the challenges life, can sometimes present. Seeking assistance in an effort to sort out and make sense of one’s private life, relationships, and emotions is a personal strength and an INVESTMENT in YOURSELF…the very best investment there is!

Welcome to SELF-DISCOVERY!

Written by R.E. on Apr 07, 2021 after counseling with AnnaMarie for 3 months

I came to counseling to work through some specific issues with which I was struggling. I didn't have a ton of faith in counseling because I felt incapable of opening up. AnnaMarie has helped me do just that by listening and offering helpful techniques. She has slowly gained my trust that she wants nothing more from me than for me to be happy and healthy. AnnaMarie does so much more than just listen to me, she helps me. She is a great asset on my journey to live my best life. I am thankful for her.

She is amazing. First time I have felt a connection with a counselor. She really listens and gives honest feed back.

Written by T.O. on Feb 27, 2021 after counseling with AnnaMarie for 6 months on issues concerning depression, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related issues, and self esteem

Anna Marie’s approach is kind, encouraging, and at the same time no nonsense. She helped me dig deep and do the hard work to better my outlook on life, work, and relationships. I always leave a session feeling seen and heard. I’ve began to find my voice in setting boundaries and working through relational conflicts and I have her to thank.

Written by L.I. on Feb 20, 2021 after counseling with AnnaMarie for 1 year and 2 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship issues, and sleeping disorders

AnnaMarie takes a direct and no nonsense approach to counseling. As she says it’s not for everyone and I’ll probably not like it but it is also the most effective and quickest way to work through whatever issue is at hand. If you need help and want to find the solution and are ready to be honest with yourself and do the work, she is the perfect match. I found her worksheets effective and looked forward to her advice.

I appreciate Annemarie helping me with my issues. I feel that she will help me with my deep seated communication and lack of empathy.

Written by T.A. on Nov 17, 2020 after counseling with AnnaMarie for 2 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related issues, parenting issues, self esteem, and coping with life changes

Dr. AnnaMarie has helped me progress and change my way of thinking. She has been more helpful in ways I never thought.

Written by B.O. on Aug 26, 2020 after counseling with AnnaMarie for 3 months

AnnaMarie sees strengths in me that I tend to overlook. She gives me tools and exercises to examine my issues objectively. The roadmap back to myself can only be revealed by me, but I feel that I now have the capability of illuminating it. I still have rough days but AnnaMarie helps me learn to navigate those.

This has only been my second session but she is one of the best therapists I’ve ever had. Attentive, knowledgeable, kind and has great resources and insights.

Working with her is changing my life. I don’t know what I would do without this.

Written by T.Y. on Mar 03, 2020 after counseling with AnnaMarie for 3 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, and self esteem

Highly recommended! Everyone needs to be able to tell someone how they feel without recourse!

Written by D.J. on Feb 08, 2020 after counseling with AnnaMarie for 3 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, and compassion fatigue

AnnaMarie has paid close attention to my concerns and is clearly prepared for each session. I appreciate her diligence and grasp of detail, as well as her insightful questions. She is also very responsive to online messages.
