Online Therapy in Maine

Maine is a beautiful state to live in! There are big cities like Portland, known as home to “millennials” looking to escape NYC. And, there are smaller towns like Lewiston, a college town with the famous liberal arts school, Bates College. There’s never a lack of things to do or see in Maine.

Augusta is the capital of Maine. It’s home to The Dept of Veterans Affairs and other government employees, so there’s a lot of mental health services there. But, let’s not forget the rural area of Aroostook County which is up north, near Canada. In this area, many have little or no access to mental health care. Online therapy in Maine can make counseling accessible to anyone in the state as long as they have access to the internet.

The state of Maine offers many options for therapists who provide mental health services. However, the therapist you may want to see is not in driving distance. Or, the therapists in your area don’t specialize in treating the issues you’re having. Maybe you work in the city of Portland, but live in the suburbs, and you don’t have time to do anything but commute to and from work and home. These challenges can make it difficult to go to counseling as often as you’d like. But, with Synergy eTherapy, now you can get the mental health services you deserve without all the overwhelming obligations like commuting to and from therapy or taking time off work. 


Synergy eTherapist provides online therapy in Maine

Finding a therapist that you feel comfortable with enables you to move forward with your mental health goals easily. Online counseling can offer a personalized approach to care! It’s important to do your research however, as not all online therapy practices are the same. You are unique and deserve to feel attended to from your first consult call, all the way to your last counseling session!
You need a therapist who understands you and cares about the work you are putting into improving your health and wellness. Finding high-quality, personalized counseling services is important. But, you also need therapy that fits in your life, not the other way around. We understand. At Synergy eTherapy , we provide online therapy (otherwise known as eTherapy, telehealth, or telemental health). And we believe that this may be the type of mental health support you’ve been looking for.


Online medical and mental health services are gaining traction because they are extremely easy, convenient, and flexible to fit your needs. Think about it: What’s different, from a treatment approach standpoint if we are in the same room together, or in a different room together talking over video, in real-time? Research shows that online therapy is similar to in-person therapy.

Let’s face it, life gets busy. During online therapy, you and your therapist login to a secure website and use video chat to have an online counseling session. It’s as easy of a click of a link to receive high-quality mental health care from the comfort of your surroundings! The same device you use for FaceTime, Zoom, or any other video chat can be used for telehealth!


One thing people might not know about online therapy is that you have to see a counselor who has a license to practice therapy in the state you live in. For example, if you live in Maine you need to see a therapist who has a Maine license. At Synergy eTherapy, we have therapists who have a Maine license and are comfortable seeing patients online.


Online therapy has many of the same benefits as in-person counseling.  Studies have compared online therapy and in-person counseling and found that you can get similar benefits from each!  However, there are some additional benefits to getting counseling online.

You lead a busy life.  It often feels like you are pulled in many different directions. So, the hour or longer it can take to get to and from in-person counseling sessions is sometimes impractical. Online therapy will save you time. so that you can do what you love with who you love. You don’t have to worry about whether your train is running late or if you get stuck on the I-90 traffic jam. You won’t be late for your session, because you literally need 2 minutes before your online therapy session to find a secure area, put your headphones on, and log in!

You can log in to our secure video platform on your phone, computer, or tablet, and have a counseling session where you are comfortable. You can see an online therapist in your home, office, or even in your car! Therapy appointments can fit into your busy day because you only need a few minutes to log in to your computer. No more commutes to an office or waiting in a crowded waiting room!

Evidence shows that the connection between you and your therapist is THE most important factor in whether or not therapy is helpful. If you are going to invest your time and energy in counseling, you want to work with a therapist who is a good match for you. So, you need to see someone who you like and trust. Likewise, you need to talk to a therapist who can help with the specific mental health concerns you have.

Some parts of Maine, especially big cities like Portland, have more therapists to choose from. But, finding someone who specializes in PTSD or trauma treatment like Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT), or someone who can provide couples counseling in smaller towns in Maine could be difficult. It’s important to find someone that specializes in the specific issue you are having. Additionally, it is important to find a therapist that you connect with. In a smaller town, you might not be able to reach one or both of those goals because your options are limited. 

That’s where online counseling makes all the difference.  Online therapy gives you access to more therapists who specialize in a variety of mental health issues.

Being a new mom or new parent, rather it is your first or your fifth child, can be exhausting. At Synergy eTherapy, we have therapists who have trained in maternal mental health. Maternal mental health care meets the psychological needs of a woman before and after she gives birth. The birth of a baby is a big life change. Women may feel overwhelmed by these changes. They may experience depression or anxiety for an extended time.

Also, counseling is helpful for women who have had a hard time getting pregnant, have had a miscarriage, or experienced the loss of a child. Treatment includes talking about the negative thoughts that may come up during pregnancy, childbirth, and parenthood. It also may include grief counseling. This is helpful for those who are coping with infertility, miscarriage, or loss of a child. Synergy eTherapy’s Maine counselors can provide this care.
Having access to online counseling as a new parent can be valuable. Etherapy allows clients to meet with a therapist in the comfort of their own home during a time that works with their family’s schedule.



One of our Synergy eTherapists who offers therapy sessions to people living in Maine, Dr. Elizabeth Merrill, trained at the VA in Cognitive Processing Therapy. Cognitive Processing Therapy, or CPT, is an evidence-based, short-term treatment that can lessen or even eliminate Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) symptoms by using cognitive behavioral techniques.
During counseling, the therapist educates you about PTSD symptoms. After that, they help you change your unhelpful beliefs or “stuck points” associated with the traumatic event.
Your therapist will give you exercises to help you get in touch with your thoughts and emotions. You will be encouraged to write a summary of the trauma. But, in therapy, you will develop cognitive tools that will help you think about the event and overcome the trauma you experienced

ONLINE COUNSELING FOR COLLEGE STUDENTS IN MAINEcollege student working with an online therapist in Maine during online therapy with Synergy eTherapy

Moving away to college is an exciting, it’s a difficult transition in a young adult’s life. You might feel nervous, anxious, or even depressed as you deal with new social and academic demands. Everything in your life changes when you go away to college. If you, or someone you know, is struggling with the transition to college, please know that you/they are not alone. It’s normal to go through a period of transition and to feel overwhelmed. In fact, both depression and anxiety are very common in college students. Some college students put on a happy face while feeling anxious or scared inside.  However, counseling can help.
Individual eTherapy or online group therapy sessions for college students in Maine can be particularly helpful. Online therapy sessions will allow you to process this new time in your life. Furthermore, you’ll learn how to cope with this new and exciting life change in a positive way. College teaches us a lot more about ourselves than we realize. Getting extra support for mental health should be like getting extra support for math! Online therapy sessions take away the difficulty of needing to go off-campus. It also eliminates the privacy issues that can come up when you seek counseling on campus. In fact, online counseling even takes away some of the motivation issues you might have on days when you can’t seem to get yourself even to leave the dorm room. Online therapy sessions fit perfectly into a college student’s life and schedule!


You may worry so much and this makes it difficult to pay attention and accomplish your daily to-do list. Maybe you feel shaky, your heart races, you have sweaty palms, or a dry mouth.  Perhaps, you find yourself feeling anxious during social situations. You fear you might be judged by others.  
Anxiety disorders are very real AND very treatable. After months of counseling for anxiety, you will be able to reduce or eliminate symptoms. Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) for anxiety focuses on helping you re-think your anxious thoughts and then teaches you to cope with negative feelings. Therapy will encourage you to set goals and move forward in your life without as much anxiety.
