Forbes Health named Synergy eTherapy BEST OF 2023 FOR ONLINE CBT THERAPY and one of the BEST ONLINE THERAPY SERVICES OF 2023 by Forbes Health!


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 agencies. 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.

In Maine, there’s no shortage of therapists offering mental health services. However, the specific therapist you wish to see might be beyond a reasonable driving distance. Alternatively, the therapists in your local area might not specialize in the issues you’re facing. Perhaps you work in bustling Portland, ME, but your home is nestled in the quiet suburbs, leaving you with barely enough time for your daily commute. These circumstances can make attending counseling sessions as often as you’d like quite challenging.

But with Synergy eTherapy, all these obstacles fade away. Now, you can access the mental health services you deserve without the overwhelming burdens of commuting to and from therapy or taking time off work.

Get high-quality online therapy that's personalized to meet your needs.

Online counseling offers a personalized approach to mental health care. When you find a therapist you feel comfortable with, it lets you move forward with your mental health goals easily. Not all online therapy practices are the same, so do your research and find one that meets your needs. 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, it is important to also find a therapist that fits into your life. We understand. At Synergy eTherapy, we offer online therapy (otherwise known as eTherapy, telehealth, or telemental health). We believe that this may be the type of emotional support you’ve wanted.

How Online Therapy Works In Maine

In Maine, it’s essential to work with an online therapist licensed to practice within the state you reside in. For instance, if you’re in Bar Harbor, ME, you should connect with a therapist holding a Maine license. At Synergy eTherapy, our therapists are licensed in Maine and are experienced in providing online counseling services, ensuring you receive quality care tailored to your location.

Online Therapy Has Many Benefits

Convenience: Online Counseling Saves You and Your Family Precious Time

You lead a busy life. As a working professional, 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 impractical. Online therapy will save you time and a commute. You don’t have to factor in traffic or running late trying to get out of the house. All you only need about 2 minutes before your session to find a secure, private area, time to put your headphones, and logging in!  

You can log in to our secure video platform on your phone, computer, or tablet, and have a counseling session wherever is most comfortable for you! You can see an online therapist in your home, yard, office, or even in your car! Therapy appointments can fit into your busy day because it can happen wherever you are!

Online Therapy Gives You Options

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 bigger cities in Maine have more therapists to choose from. However, 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. Regardless, it’s important to find someone that specializes in the specific issue you are having. You may not be able to do this if you have limited options in a smaller town. 

Online therapy is different! Online therapy gives you access to more therapists who specialize in a variety of mental health issues. 

Accessibility: Online Counseling Is Easy


Access to therapy is one of the biggest things preventing people from getting mental health care. Online therapy is very helpful for people who are homebound like new moms, or people with physical disabilities or chronic health conditions.  Regardless of why in-person therapy is not for you, our eTherapists will provide you with very high-quality therapy in the state of Maine

Does Online Therapy Really Work The Same As In-Person Therapy?

Just like with anything important, we encourage people here to thoroughly research before engaging in online therapy. But, the convenience of online therapy (also known as Telehealth) is remarkable! Research indicates that online counseling is just as effective in addressing various mental health issues as in-person counseling.

Counseling for New Moms and New Families in Maine

As parents, we know that being a new mom or a new parent is exhausting. At Synergy eTherapy, we have therapists who are trained to provide maternal mental health care. This 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 and may experience anxiety or depression for some time. 

Online counseling is great for women who are having a hard time becoming pregnant, have been through a miscarriage, or experienced child loss. Treatment includes talking about the negative thoughts that may come up during pregnancy, childbirth, and parenthood. Therapy may also include grief counseling, which is helpful for women who are coping with infertility, miscarriage, or the loss of a child. Synergy eTherapy’s Maine counselors can provide this care.
eTherapy lets women and their partners meet with a therapist in the comfort of their own home when it works with their family’s schedule. Having access to online counseling offers overwhelmed parents comfort and support as they adjust to the challenges and changes they’re experiencing.

Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT)

In Maine, our Synergy eTherapists specialize in Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT), a proven short-term trauma treatment method. CPT, an evidence-based approach, is designed to alleviate or eliminate symptoms of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) using cognitive behavioral techniques.

In therapy sessions, individuals are educated about PTSD symptoms and guided in challenging and changing unhelpful beliefs related to traumatic experiences. Clients may be encouraged to write a summary of the trauma as part of the process. Ultimately, through CPT, individuals acquire cognitive tools to confront and overcome the trauma they have endured.
