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.

Whether you need counseling for just a few sessions or over a longer period of time, the benefits can effect real, lasting change in your life. When I say "the problems that face us," I mean a whole range of interpersonal...

In nearly 30 years of clinical work, one of the key lessons I’ve learned is how important it is for my clients to feel heard.
