About Dr. Annmarie Mica

I am a caring, flexible, and down-to-Earth licensed psychotherapist who enjoys integrating traditional and modern psychotherapy approaches with the outdoors. The skills I have learned from outdoor activities and psychotherapy across a variety of settings leave me optimistic about providing therapy outdoors for children, adolescents, and adults. This is a growing specialty I provide for clients who do better outside of the walls of an office.

I also enjoy helping clients who are just as comfortable in a traditional office setting for their therapy. After all, I believe therapy should be a place in which you feel comfortable enough to open up, inside or out.

What is therapy with me like?

Therapy is a collaborative adventure in which I support and challenge you to heal and grow, depending on your needs.
I work with clients of all ages to help them live happier, more satisfying lives. I believe every person has the possibility and power to improve his or her life and to keep that momentum going. That is why I work together with clients to help them overcome roadblocks. To do this, I use a blend of brief Solution-Focused, Interpersonal, Cognitive Behavioral, and Positive Psychology approaches to guide my work in a safe, comfortable, and encouraging atmosphere. Depending on the age of the client, I also use play therapy to help my clients to communicate. Depending on your needs, you may also feel yourself gently challenged throughout your therapy with me. I strive to create this atmosphere both in- and outdoors.

Professional Experience

I am a licensed Psychologist in both Maine (License # PS1503) and Massachusetts (License # 9875) and a Mental Health Counselor (License # 8432) licensed in Massachusetts with 11 years of experience working with individuals in a psychotherapy setting, helping them learn about themselves, connect with others, and learn various therapeutic skills to handle life's challenges. I have used a variety of approaches over the years, depending on clients' needs, to address acute crises and ongoing issues, both brief and longer term. I have worked with individuals in a variety of settings from schools, to private outpatient practice, to hospitals, and the community. I have experience with severe acute and chronic mental health issues, as well as everyday concerns. Many of my past clients worked on managing anxiety, depression, attention and executive functioning issues, interpersonal concerns, self improvement, and life stressors.

I earned my doctorate in clinical psychology (Psy.D.) from William James College (formerly Massachusetts School of Professional Psychology) in 2011.

Finding a therapist that's the right match for you is important in making changes in your life. I encourage you to ask as many questions as you need to decide whether working with me feels comfortable and makes sense for you.
