Caroline Plimpton, LCSW
At times of overwhelm, it’s important to find a guide. I consider my role as a therapist as one of support, to help you sort out the emotions and find your own path forward.
The ability to have healthy relationships, appropriate boundaries, and a stronger sense of self are all available to you when you can identify and change your patterns.
I’m particularly interested in helping you form a kinder relationship to yourself, by challenging the inner critic and building up your compassion for self.
I work from a strengths perspective to support you in making the changes you desire, to examine the roles and expectations you have taken on, and to consciously make your life your own.
I offer a compassionate, non-judgmental space to be heard (and believed).
I can help you navigate anxiety, depression, life transitions, relationships, parenting, and grief.
I have extensive experience supporting parents in managing stress, improving their skills, and helping recognize and change unhelpful family dynamics.
I hold a master’s degree in Social Work from University of New England and undergraduate degree from University of Maine at Orono.
I’ve worked in a number of educational and mental health settings as a therapist and consultant, helping to strengthen families and relationships, and provide a journey of hope and healing to individuals throughout Maine.
