Ann Marie Pagano

My Philosophy: Ann Marie abides by the philosophy that everyone deserves an empathetic therapist who will treat them with respect and dignity, while providing a safe and open environment where clients feel like they belong.

What Sessions With Ann Marie Look Like: Ann Marie seeks to create an environment where clients feel comfortable to express themselves in a nonjudgmental environment. She strives to support her clients to the best of her ability and teach DBT skills along the way, with a possible reference or two from TikTok.

More About Me: As an adoptee herself, Ann Marie knows just how hard it can be for those who are adopted to feel supported when intense feelings arise. She guides families and individuals through these feelings from the perspective of an adoptee. During her internship, Ann Marie saw tremendous growth in her clients and witnessed the power of DBT and its influence. She found her passion working with children, adolescents, and families and works with clients to be an advocate for them and an active member of their support system. She strives to be a part of every client’s journey towards creating a life worth living.
