"In addition to my academic and professional counseling work, I have a variety of life experiences to draw from. Upon graduating high school in 1975, I went into nursing and was in and out of the field for 20 years. I was a military wife and after a divorce, I raised four children as a single parent. Two of those children I inherited and two I gave birth to. I am very familiar with the triumphs and tragedies of child rearing. Over my working career I've been employed in a variety of places such as hospitals, nursing homes, extended care facilities, Red Cross work, and in various schools in many different capacities with students of all ages. I have also done volunteer work in many different areas as well.
I have experience counseling children, adolescents, and adults in diverse areas of treatment that include depression, anxiety, conflict resolution, stress management, anger management, child rearing, relationship building, the grieving process, PTSD and other life challenges. I also work with families. My style of counseling leans heavily toward Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and while it is necessary to work on things that trigger us from our past, I also concentrate on Solution-Focused Brief Therapy and assisting clients in looking toward the future. Upon request, I also do faith-based counseling.
Insurances, MaineCare and Medicare are accepted. Professional references are available upon request. -Cynthia Thomas, LCSW
