Christina McGuire, LCSW

My name is Christina McGuire and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of Maine with 16 years of experience providing mental health therapy to young adults, individual and families. I am a graduate of the University of Southern Maine where I earned my Master’s in Social Work and I am also a graduate of the University of New Hampshire where I studied the practice and administration of Outdoor Education and Experiential Learning. Within the past 5 years I have become licensed to provide support to people struggling with Substance Use issues. Much of my training has come from working and teaching in both the outdoors and within traditional settings like schools, health centers and people’s homes where I have therapeutically supported people to “learn from their experience”.
I believe that our lives provide us with a wide variety of experiences that impact us. Depending on our relationships, resources, personal health /wellness and resiliency, the stressors that we face can become thought provoking to overwhelming and life changing situations that can require a great deal of support to work through and learn from.
I became a mental health therapist because I believe that being with others through life changing experiences and helping them to learn the skills to improve their ability to cope is a privilege. My therapeutic style is laid back, person centered, strengths based, relational and goal oriented. I believe that through working together, individuals can make great changes in the quality of their lives and the lives of others.
