I welcome clients of any age, gender, or background who could use some support in working through transitions or changes, understanding and processing difficult emotions and experiences, or dealing with the stressors of day to day life. I have experience working with members of the LGBTQ + community, with people of diverse racial and ethnic backgrounds, with children and adolescents, with people of all ages who have experienced trauma and its after effects, and with foster and adopted families.

I am non-binary, polyamorous, and pansexual and love providing support to people in the LGBTQ + community. I love working with children and teenagers, but have no specific age restrictions on my practice. I'm seeking clients who need to explore their emotions, experiences, and behaviors in an expressive way. Talking only gets us so far, whereas in my experience, use of the Expressive Arts (dance, drama, music, art, and writing) has an ability to get at the deeper stuff.

I have experience working with trauma, attachment, depression, anxiety, transitions, ADHD and LGBTQIA + clients.
Hi, I'm Hannah! It can feel challenging to think about starting therapy and overwhelming to know what brings you or your family to seek support. What I know about therapy is that the best fit is usually based on the relationship between the therapist and the client (you). A lot of the time therapy is about how you feel talking to and sitting with that person. The best way to get to know more about me is to give me a call and let’s figure it out together. I look forward to connecting with you regarding traditional office based therapy or Ecotherapy.

As a member of the community, I am happy to provide LGBTQ + friendly therapy services if sought.
Hello and Welcome! Currently offering Telehealth meetings; I specialize in techniques that focus on the health of the relationships between people. I utilize Relational and Narrative Therapy; where you are the expert of your life and together we reframe difficult or troubling experiences. The practice of relational therapy views the mental health of an individual as often being based on, or at least greatly affected by the quality of relationships (family, romantic, friendship, colleagues, neighbors, etc.) in a person's life.

Hi, I'm Olivia and I'm glad you're here. If you are looking to feel more at home within yourself, you're in the right place. I work mainly with young women, trans and non-binary folks who are wanting to feel more connected, in-tune and harmonious within themselves and the world around them. The main modality I offer is Internal Family Systems. IFS approaches each of us as our own family system that we get to tend too and nurture. As a client of IFS myself, I know the deep reaching benefits and I love to share it with clients. I think of my approach as honoring and supporting the "whole you" to facilitate embodiment and growth.

Have worked closely with transgender clients on their journey of coming out and beginning new lives.
I don't solve problems. What I do is work with clients and teach you how to problem solve!! And then we practice that skill together. No matter the age of my client nor the reason that brings them to my office, I want to be clear that this is a team approach. That having a neutral party to speak with; someone who will not judge but someone with whom you can share your concerns and issues can make all of the difference in the world in bringing about the changes that you desire.

Since 2015 I have worked with kids, teens, adults, and families experiencing issues related to anxiety, depression, ASD, ADHD, trauma, fostering/adoption, and LGBTQIA + identity.
Hey there, I’m Maddie (she/her). I believe in the inherent ability of people to grow, succeed, and heal given the right tools and appropriate levels of support--no matter where you are in life. Whether we are meeting to discuss difficult emotions or experiences, transitions, relationships, or the stressors of day to day life, I strive to create a safe and comfortable space for folks to feel seen, heard, and supported. I work from a strengths-based and trauma-informed perspective to help people celebrate their individuality while addressing the challenges they are facing.

My approach to therapy is eclectic- with an effort to combine aspects of DBT, Mindfulness, Narrative Therapy and Motivational Interviewing with yoga, art, and breathwork as they best serve you in your environment. I believe in therapy as a dual process- where you as the client are the expert in your own lived experience- and I serve to help guide you through the steps of change. Together we can identify goals, thought patterns, or behaviors that are not serving you, and engage in the development of coping mechanisms and skills that you can utilize when feeling anxious, dysregulated, or triggered.

I work with people who have trouble with relationships, depression, anxiety, panic attacks, rage fits, struggle with addiction/alcohol, have gone through trauma, and grew up in unhealthy homes. People who at times wish they could escape life and need support to remember how to smile, or sometimes learn how to smile *for real* for the first time. If someone uses legal and/or illegal substances and wants to quit or not, I support your decision. If you want to ease your anxiety, anger, and/or sadness and want to feel happy, I believe you deserve that! :)

Have you ever experienced issues around your sex life, sexuality, or gender? These issues can feel awkward, lonely, and uncomfortable. Sexuality, sex, and gender are integral aspects of life that on the whole are ignored and misunderstood by society. Perhaps you want to learn about the desire difference between you and your partner, or you want to process through trauma that you have experienced in the past, or you would like to explore the world of BDSM and kink but have been too nervous to have a conversation with any of your friends. Regardless of your situation, your sexuality and gender needs are valid.

Life can be full of challenges and stressors. Seeking out help and support can be challenging. In my practice I recognize that every individual is in a different place when they start counseling and it is important to cater treatment to each individual. I strive to provide support to individuals of all ages and focus on finding healthy ways to managing each persons mental health symptoms and everyday life stressors. Are you struggling with something in your life and feeling that you could use some extra support? By working together we can find ways to manage your current challenges and find healthy ways to cope.

What type of Biddeford 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 or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Biddeford?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering 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.
