Psychotherapy Rooted in a Catholic Understanding of the Human Person

*ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS. CALL OR EMAIL TO BEGIN HEALING* My name is Andrew Phinney. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I opened Be Still Counseling Services after noticing a lack of faith-based counseling focused on Catholic-Christian and Non-Catholic Christian principles in many areas of Maine. You DO NOT HAVE to be Catholic or Christian to receive services. Clients' different faith traditions or lack thereof are always respected. A non-judgmental atmosphere is created where you can explore your life without fear or worry. I have found approaches focused on interior integration and healing of wounds or traumas as being the most helpful. These approaches include EMDR and therapies focused on Ego-States or "Parts Work". I also find the works of Dr. Conrad Baars and Dr. Anna Terruwe to be extremely helpful in healing. Most importantly however, a strong therapeutic alliance is fostered in which you and I work together to create goals, and I help you reach them. Therapy should always be client-driven, not therapist-driven. I understand it can be intimidating or scary to make the choice to engage in counseling. Perhaps you had a bad experience before? Perhaps you are unsure if it will work? I cannot promise to fix everything. But I can promise I will try my hardest to foster the healing process at your own pace. Do not hesitate to reach out. Thank you for checking out the website, and God Bless you.
