About

Psychotherapy Rooted in a Catholic Understanding of the Human Person

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. Many times, people of faith feel uncomfortable speaking with a secular therapist or feel uneasy trying to integrate their faith into the healing process. I provide a place for a client to incorporate their faith into the therapeutic process where God is acknowledged as the primary source of healing. Be Still Counseling is currently a telehealth practice. Sessions can be done in the comfort of your own home with this telehealth platform. A non-judgmental atmosphere is created where you can explore your life without fear or worry. I have found Cognitive-Behavior Therapy- the way one thinks, feels, and acts, to be beneficial in treating a variety of issues. I also have additional training in treating people who have experienced trauma as well as grief and bereavement. 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 specialize in working with people whose mental health challenges may involve loss, grief and bereavement, depression, anxiety, trauma, self-esteem, relationship conflicts, life transitions, scrupulosity, behavioral issues, and parenting skills. I also offer couples counseling for marriages. 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.
