In my 12 years as a therapist, it has been my great joy to work with women, men and adolescents working to find hope and relief amidst a variety of struggles, primarily focused on eating disorders and disordered eating and related symptoms (including body image, perfectionism, and OCD), substance use disorders and related struggles, mood-based symptoms (primarily depression and anxiety), trauma and trauma-based responses, and relationship issues. I believe that it takes great courage to look at these issues, and I'll work with you to ensure that you don't feel overwhelmed or alone on this path. One of the key ways I believe that we establish a foundation of hope and connection is through faith and a spiritual connection. I'll work with you to establish your mind, body, and spiritual work is founded in faith based on biblical truth and my unwavering belief in His desire to walk through pain and suffering alongside His children. We will pray together (if you are willing), and I will pray for you.
In walking with you towards your own better, I’ll draw from several approaches, including my intensive training in DBT, CBT, psychodynamic therapy. I have also completed level 1 training in EMDR, which may be appropriate to help you through painful memories and symptoms related to trauma.
Although I feel like I’ve always known that I was going to be a therapist someday, I also had a prior career as a trainer and consultant, working with organizations to develop clearer and stronger leadership, coaching, and communication strategies (among other things!). In my work as a professional counselor, I have served as a therapist, Clinical Director, and site operations Director. My heart has always in the therapuetic work with the client, and I’m delighted to make that a primary focus of my time.

Anne Marie is wonderful! She has helped me grow in so many ways and I could never thank her enough!
Dr. Anne really helped me put. I’ve have some counselors before but she had heard me, helped me, and is overall fantastic! She was professional but felt like I was just talking to a woman in my church whom I trust dearly.
