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!

AnnaMarie is great, we have had a few issues with scheduling which is hard to deal with when you are going through tough times. Her advice is great and I really appreciate our time together.

I was a sceptic about returning to therapy after my therapist was no longer on the platform and even had a poor first experience back, but then I matched up with Anna Marie and I’ve been absolutely at ease and grateful to have found here here. Her work ethic, professionalism, empathy, and goal oriented approach has been helpful for me to examine, unlock and learn. I am truly happy she is here. Thank you for this remarkable work you do.

AnnaMarie was helpful the first time I met her but she canceled on me twice and then told me she wasn't the therapist for me. I came to this sight for help and it has ended up causing me more stress than I had before. I am extremely disappointed with BetterHelp in general. They are continuing to charge me when no one is helping me.

AnnaMarie has taught me several valuable skills and life lessons and I am so grateful for the growth and new perspectives that have come along with it. I appreciate and enjoy her honest and direct approach in our sessions!
