Counseling and Therapy Services
For Adults and Children
There are times when almost every person needs a helping hand to overcome sorrow, grief, stress or unhappiness due to every day burdens. Traumatic events such as violence, disaster, divorce or the death of a loved one can trigger emotional and psychological difficulties. And people struggling with serious and persistent mental health and substance abuse issues may need a more constant counseling presence in their lives.
At Maine Behavioral Healthcare, we offer hope, healing and recovery.
Outpatient counseling services provide individuals, couples and families who may be struggling with a wide variety of personal and family issues with high-quality, innovative therapeutic treatment by licensed clinicians. We also provide specialized treatment for those with co-occurring mental health and substance use issues.
Clinicians work closely with our psychiatry staff and nurse practitioners to provide integrated treatment. For people with severe and persistent mental illness, we provide intensive, team-based services (see Assertive Community Treatment).
Our therapists, in collaboration with case managers, physicians and nurse practitioners, have helped thousands of people recover from mild, short-term emotional and psychological difficulties, as well as to successfully manager severe and chronic mental illness.
Maine Behavioral Healthcare offers effective, high-quality, innovative and evidence-informed individual, family and group therapies to help children, adolescents, adults and elders from all incomes and backgrounds struggling with:
- Depression and anxiety

- Relationship, couples and family problems
- Family crises, including separation, divorce or death
- Sexual or physical abuse
