Hello and welcome! Thanks for checking me out. Lots of folx say that I'm not the typical kind of therapist. My name is Corazón Burke, but I go by Cora, and my pronouns are they/she. Yes, my name is the Spanish word for heart, so one could say that helping people is my calling. I'm known for my compassion for others. I am licensed in Florida, Maine, and Washington, with an additional Florida certification as a Masters Level Certified Addiction Professional. I graduated with my Master's degree in Psychology with an emphasis on mental health counseling from the University of West Florida in 2012. I began providing telephone crisis counseling in 2009, and since then I've worked in many different settings with individuals of all ages, with a variety of mental health struggles, including addiction, stress, depression and anxiety, grief, and trauma. I have special interest in working with individuals who have suffered as a result of existing while fat. I have received additional training in treating trauma and addiction, and come from a trauma-informed, person centered background. I am sex positive (including poly/kink, and sex work), LGBTQIA+ and neurodiversity affirming, fat body liberating, and disability advocating. When it comes to substance use, my focus is on meeting needs. I firmly believe in creating a safe, inclusive, and respectful space for every person and enjoy working with those who have unconventional or alternative lifestyles and spiritual/religious beliefs. I will not judge you, for any reason, and will hold you in unconditional positive regard. No subject is taboo. I won’t claim to know everything, and I’m a human that messes up at times, but I’m happy to walk with you on the path to knowing yourself and living the life that you want. If you feel like you're an outcast, or feel like you're weird or different than others, I welcome you into this space.

8 years of experience as a mental health therapist

For many of us, it has been a significantly challenging few years. Wide spread grief across the nation due to multiple factors has taken a toll on mental health and overall everyday functioning. Old traumas have resurfaced and the needs of family, friends, colleagues, jobs, pets, partners in addition to supporting our own mental health needs can feel exhausting, an unclimbable hill if you will. It is a lot. I have experience in helping clients with stress and anxiety, trauma and abuse, coping with grief and loss, & depression. I am licensed in Maine and before joining BetterHelp, I worked in multiple schools throughout Maine and Massachusetts as a clinical social worker. This involved a lot of work with family systems and support to parents/caregivers/guardians. It also involved support to teachers and outside providers, discussing compassion fatigue, boundaries, adapted approaches to meet specific needs, and sometimes being a trusted ear to vent to. I have specific training in Trauma Systems Therapy which focuses on an individual’s emotional needs as well as the social environment in which the individual lives and functions in. It is a holistic approach that I find helps create the fullest picture of a person’s life so we are able to assess areas for strengthening and areas that are protective factors for the individual. My goal is to create a space that is yours, truly yours. I believe that you are the expert of your story. If this is your first time working with a therapist it will be a pleasure to work with you and I am excited for our journey. Congratulations to you for taking this first big step! If you are returning to therapy I would love to know what has been helpful and maybe what hasn’t been so helpful. Creating a safe environment with trust and understanding are key elements of the work we will be doing. I aim to lay the foundation for a strong trusting nonjudgmental therapeutic environment that is safe for all. I know that this can be an uncomfortable experience. I want you to know I am here with you and I appreciate your willingness to consider my support as we explore methods that best meet your needs.

Later I worked in Child Welfare, as a Child Protective Investigator; investigating allegations of abuse/neglect and ensuring child safety. I have also worked with families, assisting them with getting to the root of their issues while strengthening the family unit. Lastly, I have worked as a medical social worker, both in the hospital and in the outpatient Clinics, as well as in the Emergency Department. I provide crisis intervention, case management, and counseling; assisting patients with trauma, adjustment disorder, and grief. I use an eclectic approach to meet the needs of each individual client.

Hello, and thank you for taking the time out of today to focus on you. My name is Colleen Clark and I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor and practicing therapist in Portland, Maine. My approach to counseling integrates classical therapeutic approaches, mindfulness and artistic modalities. I believe strongly that any therapeutic relationship in which the therapist is held up as an expert is innately flawed. You are the expert on you. In sessions, I will work with you to build a relationship built on mutual respect and trust, and seek to create a safe and nurturing space in which you can uncover and listen to your own intrinsic wisdom. Throughout our lives we are repeatedly told who we are or who we ought to be by others and then, in turn, we repeat those messages to ourselves. These repeated messages can often be damaging, detrimental and deeply ingrained. In sessions we will work together to differentiate between your true experience of self and that which was imposed on you. This process can often be challenging and painful, but I will work with you at your pace to process those challenges and pains as they arise. Ultimately, through our work together, I hope that you will conclude therapy in a place of greater congruence, self-actualization and peace. Throughout my education and in my over five years of practice I have come to specialize in working with those who are struggling with anxiety, depression, self-esteem, communication, substance use, disordered eating, transitional periods of life, difficulties in interpersonal relationships, and persons healing from trauma. I am experienced in working with adults, couples, and adolescents ages eleven to eighteen. I applaud you for your courage in exploring this new chapter. Change is challenging and I am honored to be a part of helping you enact that change. Thank you for considering me to help you on your journey. I look forward to working with you.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs) about therapists and mental health services

Some other commonly asked questions on therapy with a licensed counselor and BetterHelp serving the Sanford area can be found below:

How does the cost of in-person counseling with a therapist compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Sanford therapist?

The average price of an in-person therapy session in the US is $100 to $200 per hour. These prices may be higher in Sanford due to a higher cost of living. The price also depends on the type of provider you are looking for. See the following average prices for various mental health providers without insurance:

  • Counseling with a psychiatrist: $150-$500
  • Counseling with therapists: $100-300
  • Therapy with a psychologist: $100

While many psychologists in Sanford may not take health insurance, some in the state of Maine may work on a sliding scale, meaning they'll factor in your income and charge what you can afford per session. With a BetterHelp therapist throughout the state of Maine you can expect significantly more affordable options, with sessions ranging from $65 to $100 per week (billed every four weeks). If you're looking for a therapist, Cincinnati offers a variety of professionals who can help with your mental health needs at a price you can afford.

How do I know if online counseling is right for my family in Sanford?

One of the potentially rewarding aspects of working with a Sanford therapist is the validation and active listening they can provide. Your friends and loved ones may also be available to listen, but you may feel that they may lack the skills to provide objective guidance. Counselors are trained to respond to various concerns, symptoms, and mental health conditions.

Sanford therapists in your city can support you toward a healthier emotional state, regardless of your mental health, life concerns, or healing needs. While supporting individuals in developing healthier habits, another good benefit of Sanford therapy is having an understanding, safe space with a non-judgmental party who can support you through challenging experiences.

Many people have sensitive topics that they may feel ashamed to discuss with their friends or partner. A Sanford therapist can help you confront these concerns and open up through unique methods of support. There are also many types of therapy, such as art therapy, where you may find you can express yourself through creativity instead of words with a psychotherapist.

With a lot of people in ME, therapists may be booked out with clients. Through the list of profiles above and others within BetterHelp's team, you may be able to find a psychologist within 24 to 48 hours. If you're searching to find a a nearby psychotherapist close to 04083 or the surrounding zip codes, consider others available through the BetterHelp site. No matter if you are seeking help from therapists in your area or beyond, online therapy can be a great option.

How should I prepare for my first therapy session with a Sanford counselor?

Before seeing your Sanford therapist, prep for your session by reading to understand the therapy process. You might write a list of questions you want to ask your psychotherapist, any emotional pain you may feel, and the ways in which you hope to improve. When you attend your session, let them know if you have any concerns about therapy or feel unsure about what to talk about. They may help guide you with open-ended therapeutic questions while offering mental health services. The first session will often serve as an intake to get to know you as a person and learn why you're attending therapy in Sanford.

Should I find a therapist or psychologist for therapy if I feel fine? 

Some simply don't feel the need to see a psychologist. However, some people may avoid attending therapy due to stigma or preconceived notions of what therapy entails. Although psychologists often support people with mental health conditions, you do not need a diagnosis or condition to attend therapy. You can discuss grief, relationship concerns, stress, or life changes and ask for general feedback and advice from a therapist. A Sanford licensed clinical social worker may help you gain power over your life and emotions while you navigate day-to-day experiences.

Gaining a new perspective on yourself through various therapies might allow you to improve your self-esteem, work through relationships, and gain a better sense of your mental health goals. The success you may find through therapy with a Sanford counselor can be dependent on your process.

People may also attend therapy for specific motives, such as bullying, an autism diagnosis, a desire to learn mindfulness meditation, personality concerns, trouble with office workers, specific phobias, and many other principles that a counselor can help with.

Is mental health care and therapy with a therapist worth it?

Therapy with a licensed counselor is effective and has the power to change individuals' lives. Each client is at a different stage of their emotional healing journey in life, as each human can be unique in their personality, expression, skills, and goals. A psychologist can target various symptoms, experiences, and personalities to help you feel your best and put you on the path to healing. Unlike advice from a friend, family, or non-professional, a mental health therapist has an understanding of various disorders like ADHD and depression with many hours of experience in treating adults in their practice. For this reason, seeing an evidence based psychologist in Sanford, Maine can be worth it. Over 41 million adults in the US attend therapy services each year, showing it's a popular option and is proven to be effective.

Sanford has many clinicians who practice person or client-centered individual therapy in-person and through online therapy to assist clients in their healing journey. If you opt into online therapy, you might also be able to meet with providers all over the United States and change therapists easily at any time. Many people struggling with anxiety and depression, substance abuse, body image issues, and more find therapists that are a good fit for them, feel supported, and gain further insight into their lives through internet-based therapy.

Do therapists judge you in therapy sessions during telehealth appointments?

The boundaries between you and a therapist are in place to help you and them regarding ethical concerns. Mental health professionals are held by ethical standards through the American Psychological Association (APA) and are not allowed to judge or harm their clients. If you are concerned about sharing details about yourself, feel free to withhold personal information. Their job in the therapeutic relationship is to create a safe place, help you gain a deeper understanding of your mental health, and support you. You might consider changing counselors if you don't feel safe or respected.
