Welcome, my name is Annmarie Dubois, and I am a licensed clinical social worker. I graduated from University of New England in 2015. My practice at a community mental health agency has given me a wide range of experience with all age groups, with a focus on individual therapy. My experience includes work in areas of anxiety, trauma, depression, substance use disorders, anger management, and healthy relationships. The therapy that I provide is strength-based and individualized to the person. I have a strong focus on empowerment, healthy relationship skills, and self- esteem building. I use components of cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, and solution focused therapy. I enjoy helping people to learn skills to be able to recognize and manage emotions, such as using mindfulness skills to decrease anxiety. I have experience with people experiencing transitions in their life such as loss of relationships, changes in family structure, postpartum effects, and transition to adulthood. A large focus of my work with people is related to self-care and healing through learning to take care of your emotional and physical needs, as well as building a network of positive supports and coping strategies.
A key part of therapy is building a relationship of trust and connection with your therapist. Working together to find solutions, learning skills to decrease uncomfortable feelings, and developing positive coping skills can all be a part of this process. I have an accepting style that allows people to feel relaxed and safe, and can be flexible in modes of communication. I look forward to traveling with you on this journey.
