I am licensed clinical professional counselor in the state of Maine. I worked for 3 years as an in-home counselor for families with children struggling with behavioral and emotional problems ages 6-16. I have more then 8 years of experience in the field and I have specialized in intensive substance use and co-occurring disorders. I am grateful to be in recovery myself and I truly enjoy sharing hope with those in their darkest hours. Addictive thinking can be traced to uncover the most life changing opportunities when someone is open for help. I have experience with couples, one on one, in-home, and group counseling. I have helped many people with a variety of challenging issues ranging from depression, anxiety, and stress, to substance use, sexual addiction, and loss of purpose. I am a Christian who believes that God truly is love and I encourage all of my clients to develop their spirituality in the pursuit of health and happiness.
So many people are completely overwhelmed with life's circumstances that they cannot tell what the problem really is or how to face it and overcome it. I am here to help you along that journey and share what guidance and insight I possess.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Stephen Dexter. We don’t pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.
I like that I can have frank discussions with Stephen about my concerns, and the process has also allowed me to see my circumstances different and more optimistically.
He is the best
The very best therapist I have ever encountered! I truly cannot say enough kind words about Stephan!!!
Stephen has been perfect for where I am right now and what I am working through. I honestly couldn’t think of a better person to talk to as I navigate a litany of challenges and changes. He continues to be one of the highlights of my week.
Stephen Dexter has really helped me think through some tough issues. I have a lot more clarity now for moving forward.

I could not be more grateful for the work Stephen and I have done together. He has helped me immensely, and while our time together was short, I feel he has given me the tools and insight I need to move forward. Thank you Stephen!
Stephen is a wonderful therapist. I only had money for a month, and we made the most of it. Stephen is a great listener and creates a very open environment where I felt very safe and secure. Even though I had a short time, I feel like the benefits reaped are going to last a lifetime. Thank you, Stephen!!
Steve has helped us more thank i can thank him for
I feel like I can really relate to Stephen. There are several times in each session that he says something and it just clicks.
I am grateful to have found a counselor that is so genuine. Finding a faith-based counselor has made all the difference for me. Stephen's ability to tactfully incorporate scripture and faith into the cognitive behavioral aspect of therapy has been so helpful. I am thankful to be able to go on my therapy journey with Stephen.
