About me

Hello! My name is AnnMarie Worcester and I am a licensed counselor in the sunny state of Florida as well as in the beautiful mountains of North Carolina. For 27 years I have been fortunate to live my passion of counseling, teaching, mentoring, coaching, consulting, and supervising. I have worked for hospitals, residential facilities, crisis units, juvenile evaluation centers, rape crisis centers, youth shelters, Boys and Girls Clubs, child abuse councils, YMCA, community mental health centers, Social Services, and private counseling agencies.

My theoretical orientation is very person centered and relationship based, focusing on providing encouragement and fostering empowerment while teaching mindfulness through reality based and CBT therapy techniques. I offer my services to clients who have the willingness and ability to resolve their own problems with my assistance through the use of practical solutions and tools that can be applied in all aspects of life and any situation that may come up! Counseling involves your active participation both in and out of the counseling sessions, as well as a genuine desire and continual effort to change your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors.

YOU determine the progress of the counseling process. Change and growth will be at your pace.... sometimes it will be easy and swift, sometimes it will be slow and deliberate, sometimes it will be painful.....its all up to you and the time and effort you put in. Success is being able to face life's challenges in the future without my support or intervention by intentionally and consistently using the solutions and tools we’ve discussed and you've practiced on your own.

Are you ready? I am here to help!

She is awesome at listening, redirecting and helping me process when i have a difficult time.

Written on Dec 07, 2021 after therapy with AnnMarie for 1 year and 5 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, and sleeping disorders

I started therapy with AnnMarie mid-2020, when the world didn't feel like a safe place. She convinced me it was, helped me see my way back into it, and has helped me regain my footing. I feel heard when I have a session with her and her advice is sound, and I even follow it sometimes. ;-)

Annemarie is the best! She gives you a safe space to talk through issues, but doesn’t shy away from pushing you past your barriers to move further along. She’s awesome.

Anne-Marie has got me through some of the darkest times of my life. She listens without judgment and allows me to express myself with understanding and compassion she is the best counselor I’ve ever had

I look forward to her messages and like having someone to talk to who is not judging my every move as I figure everything out.

I was with Betterhelp for 1 month and she was very responsive to my messages. I thought I could do this without her but I was wrong.

She's intuitive and down to earth not to mention relatable. I trust her counsel and I'm grateful to have made her acquaintance...She has been extremely helpful!

AnnMarie is an incredible woman and therapist. I’ve been in therapy before but it really doesn’t compare with my time with AnnMarie. She knows the perfect questions to ask me to enable self reflection. She’s a great listener as well as she knows when to be frank with me when I need to hear it. She inspires honesty and makes me feel cared for. She has shown me so many practical tools to help with my mindfulness, boosting my self esteem and effective communication skills. I could not recommend her enough. I’ve caught myself often saying to my family and friends who are struggling, “I wish you could talk to my therapist.” Shes a wonderful human and my time with her has been invaluable.

AnneMarie is a Godsend. She has been more than a counselor but a trusted friend. Her expertise and guidance has brought me out of the lowest point in my life to a point where I am happier than I have been in years. I am so thankful for AnneMarie.

Written on Mar 09, 2021 after therapy with AnnMarie for 3 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, eating disorders, self esteem, career difficulties, and coping with life changes

AnnMarie is a great therapist. I’ve had 3 total (aside from AnnMarie) in my life, and they’ve all been very nice and comforting, but I was tired of talking about my feelings without gaining the tools to actually cope AND improve my mood/ quality of life. It’s been about 5 months, and while I still have anxiety and mild depression, I recognize how much I’ve learned from AnnMarie. There’s been a huge improvement in my ability to pinpoint triggers as well as negative thoughts and feelings and I now have the skill set to reframe them. I’ve also gotten better about enforcing my boundaries and repairing familial relationships that were suffering due to trauma I had yet to overcome. Healing isn’t linear. Therapy isn’t a cure all. It takes work. If you are expecting a therapist to hit you with a fluffy clouds, flowers & butterflies persona (hint: don’t be like old me, challenge yourself!) , AnnMarie isn’t the one for you. If you want the tools to live honestly
and make REAL and significant changes
that lead to contentment and resiliency, then choose her. She is awesome!

I've been away for a few months, but I really missed having AnnMarie to go to when things were bothering me. She has a good way of hearing me and presenting information, including issues in an helpful way.

Overall a great listener and helpful guide. AnnMarie helps to put things into perspective and uses examples from your conversation or chat with her. She is helping me to get back on track.

Written on Dec 26, 2019 after therapy with AnnMarie for 1 week on issues concerning stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, grief, eating disorders, bipolar disorder, and adhd

AnnMarie has been an amazing resource for me on my journey to overcoming some long standing issues I'm ready to move on from. She's a great listener and has given me the tools to help me overcome issues with eating/self sabotaging thoughts/ and relationship struggles. With her help I really feel like I can grow and just live a happier, healthier life. I am so grateful for this online resource which makes it actually doable to get help, rather than drive to a therapist office and sit on a couch feeling like a got real problems. Instead I feel like I'm talking to a friend who can help. It removes the stigma plus with 3 kids it's a huge time saver. I can't say enough about AnnMarie and the service itself.

I can not say enough good things about AnnMarie. Working with her has been one of the most helpful and productive counseling experiences I've ever had. She is incredibly insightful and even in session 1 was able to tune in to what my triggers were and help me understand what had put me into such an extreme anxiety spiral. She has little nuggets of wisdom in every session and helps me understand and reframe issues and things going on in my life. I have grown so much from working with her.

Written on Nov 17, 2019 after therapy with AnnMarie for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, grief, and parenting issues

Even after my first session I felt great relief. I felt like someone had my back and can help me through a difficult situation. I look forward to our sessions because I feel more empowered to handle what stress could pop up during the week. I have a feeling of safety and a vision of what my life could be if I keep working on myself. A feeling of hopefulness has replaced a lot of confusion and self-doubt.

Written on Nov 06, 2019 after therapy with AnnMarie for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, sleeping disorders, and career difficulties

AnnMarie has been extremely helpful with my anxiety. She immediately understood that my anxiety attacks cause disruption to my daily life, and started working with me on reframing my state of mind. Working on this has been extremely helpful for me, and I've already started seeing a difference! We have also started talking about what is important to me in a job, and if a career or even company change would be beneficial for me. Thank you AnnMarie!

AnnMarie has truly been a blessing. Even in texts, I can sense her care and compassion. She checks in on me if she hasn’t heard from me, which means the world for someone like me. I am encouraged to continue therapy and allowing AnnMarie to help guide me down the path to helping myself!

Work with me!
