You’re intelligent, hard-working, and creative. Life is good – on the outside. But on the inside, you feel like there’s something wrong with you. You can’t quite reach the potential you know you have. Your inner critic is relentless. Sound familiar? It’s a common scenario for adults with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD/ADD). It’s also common for those who’ve endured trauma, abuse, or neglect in childhood. There’s a lot of overlap between the two. I specialize in both.
My name is Beth Main. I’m a professional counselor licensed in Maine and Pennsylvania, and registered as a teletherapy provider in Florida. I offer online therapy (a.k.a. virtual counseling, video counseling, or telehealth) to clients anywhere in those states. I’m also a certified ADHD coach and provide coaching worldwide. In-person sessions can be held in Phillips, Maine.
Talk therapy can provide insight, validation, and hope. But sometimes, talking isn’t enough. Especially with trauma. (Not sure if what you experienced qualifies as trauma? Read this.) I offer a variety of innovative approaches that get to the root of the problem, including:

Healing. Feeling better about yourself and the world. Treatment for mental health issues. Psychotherapy deals with the messy stuff in life and the emotions that go along with it. As your therapist, I will help you process feelings and develop healthier ways of looking at the world.
A safer, more efficient format for deep work. As your Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapist, I will help you make more progress in a shorter amount of time compared to traditional weekly sessions.
Sometimes talking about problems isn’t the way to solve them. Sometimes there are no words. As your Equine Assisted Psychotherapy (EAP) mental health professional, I will help you connect with your inner wisdom through connection with a horse.
I've been a professional ADHD coach since 2006. It didn't take long before I realized that many of my clients had emotional issues that went beyond what could be addressed in coaching. So a few years later, I decided to get a master's degree in counseling so I could offer therapy as well. Then it became clear that almost every client I saw had suffered adverse childhood experiences. Those experiences had to be addressed in a different kind of way. So I went on to get specialized training in the most effective treatments available for complex developmental trauma, including certification in EMDR. Now I'm a professional counselor licensed in both Maine (LCPC) and Pennsylvania (LPC). I maintain the Board Certified Coach (BCC) credential as well.
My approach to therapy and coaching is very solution-oriented. I don't want you to just come in and vent, I want you to solve problems and make constructive changes in your life. Changes in the way you do things, feel, and think. That said, I recognize that not everyone knows what they want to change, or even what elements of their life are unhealthy. So we start where you are right now. Some of the disciplines I draw from when determining the approach to use with a client include Solution Focused Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) / Tapping, Ego State/Parts therapy, and Natural Lifemanship / Equine Assisted Psychotherapy.
Before becoming a coach / therapist, I was a successful Information Technology Project Manager / Business Analyst for a retirement services firm. I worked there for 18 years, holding progressively responsible positions and helping people get what they want. It was there that I first learned to listen for problems, think in terms of systems, and help people become comfortable with change.
On a personal level, I live on a hobby farm in the mountains of western Maine with my husband, chickens, cats, horses, and goats. My adult son still lives in Pennsylvania, where we're from. I'm an INFP. I enjoy horses, backpacking, hiking, kayaking, photography, and creating mosaic art.
