Your place to feel free of anxiety and worry
If you believe change is possible and feel ready to try something different, I am excited to meet you! I have been through my own crises and suffered from my own inner critic enough to know that asking for help is hard but also a huge saving grace. Through my trials, I realized one of my gifts is creating a space where people feel totally accepted and empowered. My goal is for you to re-connect with your deepest wisdom. By doing this, the volume on the critical voice inside your head goes down and the voice that is empathetic and compassionate becomes your new norm. The more we treat ourselves with compassion, the better we feel, and the better our life becomes. Change. Is. Possible.
Reconnect with your true self
Sessions vary based on each individual. I believe in a holistic approach, meaning we examine mind (thought patterns), body (sensations/tension/breath), as well as spirit (spiritual beliefs or world views that inform your inner wisdom). We all have a creative life force that is typically squelched by the time we become adults, and reconnecting with this creates more energy and vitality.
Additionally we will also look at food and nutrition. Our diet can often create “false moods” that can be easily eliminated by eating well and using amino acid supplements to boost neurotransmitters that may be depleted. Often this provides immediate relief to anxiety and deep cravings. The majority of the people reach out to me for addiction treatment, anxiety treatment, parenting support, grief counseling, spiritual counseling, and/or therapy for gender issues.
What people are saying: Reflecting upon all that has happened to me this summer, I know that I would not be as solidly grounded as I am today without Annemarie’s help and support. Our conversations continue to play in my head, giving me confidence when I need it, and forgiveness when I am being too hard on myself. - T. Burke (male)
Annemarie has always made me feel comfortable sharing and being vulnerable. And she helped me recognize aspects of my life and my thoughts that I could change for the better. Since seeing Annemarie, I have felt happier and more in control. – W.C. (female)
I had been to three therapists before starting with Annemarie. With Annemarie I felt the presence of a non-judgmental, knowing reflection. I felt supported exactly as I am. That in itself allowed me to release burdens that I had been holding onto and building upon that trust was her therapeutic skill set, specifically in gestalt and somatic therapy. I had never had experience "getting in my body" and uncovering the messages that were resting within. Annemarie's acceptance of me as a human being combined with her traditional and somatic therapy techniques allowed me to grow far more that I ever knew possible. I learned the true meaning of self-love. -B.P. (Cisgender male client)

It's been such a pleasure "working" with you over the years! I've been so grateful for your caring approach, the Gestalt exercises, as well as your focus on mindfulness. Thank you for all of your help and support! (Non-binary client)
Thank you for everything you do! You have really helped me find an even deeper love and trust in myself. (Cisgender female client)
