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 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.

There are plenty of therapists offering mental health services in Maine. But, 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 Portland, ME, but you live in the suburbs. So, you don’t have time to do anything but commute to and from work. 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.

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.


Online medical and mental health services are gaining traction. People have noticed how easy, convenient, and flexible it is. 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? 

Life can get busy!  During online therapy, you and your therapist login to a secure website and use video chat to have an online counseling session. It is so easy. You simply click on a link to receive high-quality mental health care from the comfort of your surroundings! You can do this on the same device you use for FaceTime, Zoom, or any other video chat platform. 


One thing about online therapy is 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 Bar Harbor, ME 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. 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!

They also offer online couples therapy 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.

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.


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 trauma treatment that can lessen or even eliminate Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) symptoms by using cognitive behavioral techniques.
During counseling, she educates you about PTSD symptoms. Then you will work towards changing your unhelpful beliefs or beliefs that are associated with the traumatic event. You may be encouraged to write a summary of the trauma. Ultimately, you will learn the cognitive tools that will help you think about the event and overcome the trauma you experienced

Moving away to college is exciting. But, 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. Actually, it’s very normal to go through a period of transition and to feel overwhelmed. Both depression and anxiety are very common issues many college students have. Even though some college students put on a happy face they may feel anxious or scared inside. But, counseling can help.

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.

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.

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.
