Maine is known for its blueberries. Your mental health can be just like picking berries. Sometimes, you pick the sweetest, juiciest berries to give you energy for the road ahead. Other times, you pick berries that taste nasty, or worse, are poison! 

A counselor can tell you which berries are sweet and which are sour, and can give you the energy needed to go on.

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor who has been in the helping profession for over 15 years. I can't imagine doing anything more rewarding than what I do. My philosophy is very simple. "We are all in this together!" I took a nontraditional route through my younger years. This allowed me to experience life in ways that I believe make me a good therapist. Life isn't always easy, or even kind. That is why I feel therapy is such a valuable thing to offer. I cannot imagine life without my work as a therapist. I have had the pleasure of working in a practice f...
