Do you need an affordable counseling option? Maybe you have a high insurance deductible? You can still receive excellent therapy services with a master’s level intern for a reduced fee of $20-$25 per session. Please contact us to schedule an appointment.
But first, meet our interns!
Brenna is a Graduate Student in the Counselor Education program at the University of Southern Maine. She has a dual concentration in Clinical Mental Health Counseling and Rehabilitation Counseling.
Are you interested in making lasting changes in your life? Whether you are seeking balance among your responsibilities, healing from a recent life challenge or transition, or experiencing feelings of depression or anxiety, I offer an opportunity for therapeutic support that meets your unique needs.
I work with clients who are interested in feeling more balanced, fulfilled, and whole in their lives. I will support you to clarify your hopes for the counseling process, and work alongside you toward your goals. I help people recognize their strengths, values, and passions, and build upon those to increase the level of joy in their lives.
As a certified yoga teacher, I have experience in mind-body approaches to wellness and am excited to support interested clients with developing self-insight through practices like mindful movement and meditation. I am also deeply committed to helping those with busy lives cultivate genuine “rest” through techniques derived from restorative yoga.
My practice provides a space for individuals to feel heard, validated, and supported. Though my approach is tailored to each individual, all clients can expect to experience empathy, respect, and warmth when working with me. I look forward to meeting with you and supporting you on your journey!
Andrea is a Graduate Student in Clinical Mental Health Counseling at the University of Southern Maine.
For much of the past twenty years, I have worked with children and families in education using a collaborative and holistic approach, which I now bring into my counseling practice.
I believe that many aspects of our lives are interconnected and, therefore, we may need to look holistically at ourselves to understand and resolve concerns. As a counselor, my goal is to help you identify the factors that are challenging you, to find the tools that work for you to overcome them, and to do so at a pace that is comfortable to you – together we will individualize treatment to fit your needs and style and build upon your strengths.
I believe strongly in the power within each of us to live fully by uncovering and honoring our “true selves” – that counseling, and change, is essentially about an uncovering of what’s already there inside of each of us. While this sounds simple in theory it certainly isn’t always an easy task, as it often involves an unlearning of sometimes long-held beliefs and perceptions, as well as a vulnerability to expose our inner selves. I also believe that people have the inherent ability for self-understanding and positive change when genuinely supported through the counseling process. I strive to provide a safe and supportive environment for all of my clients and to foster feelings of hope and acceptance as a foundation for the work to follow.
By working together, my hope is that we can restore a sense of balance and empowerment that will allow you to take the actions needed to meet your goals and create the life you desire. I want you to feel empowered to move forward in your life, to take healthy risks, and to ultimately find balance and happiness!
