*ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS AND OFFERING TELEHEALTH* Many Moons is a small group practice of 5 arts-based clinicians. By combining art making with psychotherapy, the creative process can be a safe holding container for personal content as well as a pathway to explore current struggles. Arts-based modalities include common materials like drawing, painting, clay sculpture and jewelry. We can introduce you to narrative expressions through mixed-media collage, music, poetry, and guided imagery/meditation. A photo gallery of client artwork is available at www.manymoonstherapy.org.

Welcome! Choosing a therapist is a big decision, and I appreciate being considered! While my background and training have focused strongly on child , adolescent and family therapy, I also work with individual women and couples. I sometimes say that I use a "family doc" model of psychotherapy. That is, I might see an anxious child individually and then, because kids' issues are so intertwined with their families will work with the whole family for a period of time. Or I might spend some sessions with an individual woman, who would then like to bring her partner for couples therapy.

CURRENT OPENINGS. I first discovered my passion for helping people in high school. It soon became clear that my future would revolve around this passion. I was fascinated by the human mind and began to explore psychology. From that moment on I had no doubt that my calling was to be a counselor. I graduated from the University of Maine with a Master’s in Social Work in 2010. In the last 11 years I have worked with adults, adolescents, children , and families individually and within groups. I am comfortable working with a variety of presenting problems such as anxiety, depression, and interpersonal conflict.

Whether it's assisting families in becoming more able to cope with the current stressful situations involved in being together more, assisting teachers, law enforcement and other first responders in coping with the stresses

Therapy can provide children a safe and supportive way to learn to identify and express their experiences and feelings; and make progress with social integration, growth, and development. They can develop skills to understand and work through psychosocial challenges. They have the opportunity to gain self-awareness and experience social and emotional success. Creating happiness is what parents strive for when raising children . In my practice, children will learn to identify their strengths, and become more skilled and confident in working through emotional stressors and skill deficits.

I treat a wide variety of mental health concerns for adults, youths, and children in a caring, supportive atmosphere where conversation and listening is key (play therapy for children /youth). We tailor the therapeutic experience to your expressed needs, comfort, and goals. We explore your story together as equals; sharing kindness, respect, and good humor wherever it may be found. My clients frequently comment that sessions are warm, comfortable, inviting conversations between good friends. Conversation is based on mutual respect, equality, sharing between client & therapist, with the liberal use of humor in the exchange, and real-life practical ideas.

Making the decision to seek therapy for your child or yourself takes courage. Most likely you have tried many ways to support your child who is struggling emotionally or behaviorally. Perhaps a teacher or pediatrician has suggested you explore counseling. Juggling parenting responsibilities and other life’s challenges can feel overwhelming and confusing. By providing a supportive, playful, therapeutic environment, my goal is to build a trusting relationship, teach children to express feelings in healthy ways, learn and internalize coping skills, and give parents effective ways to discipline with empathy, structure and nurture.

From the beginning of my career, I have worked with children and families on helping to improve functioning in the home. The children I`ve worked with have had issues coping with multiple stressors, difficulties managing their thoughts and feelings and the behaviors that came with that were things that they wanted to change. I also work with adults with issues that they have around many different facets including but not limited to self acceptance, parenting a child , optimal self care and more. I also like to work with people of any age to support with life transitions and self discovery.

What type of Maine mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Maine?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
