Surviving a Maine Snow Storm

We Mainers are used to winter weather; but even so, losing water, heat, power, and internet can prove to be very stressful. Winter storms come without warning here in Maine. How can you stay stress-free until the storm subsides and life returns normal?


Real Clients / Real Stories

You have allowed me to see a future when I felt like my life was over.

I recommend AWS to anyone seeking compassionate, effective outpatient therapy. They’ve been instrumental in my journey toward a happier, more meaningful life.

I love Tiffany! I need somebody like her in my life. I have no complaints at all. I just love her and my services with you guys!

All of the case managers that I have had at your agency have been absolutely fantastic and I thank God for them all. The entire staff is always so helpful and kind.

I really like AWS, and Alexis is a really good case worker.

My care coordinator and this agency have helped me so much. I am very close to getting housing. It has been really hard and a lot of work. My care coordinator has helped me so much and I am grateful for that.

Donna keeps me on track and I feel like I am supported by this agency.

Danielle is so wonderful! She has helped me so much! She has gotten me heating assistance, and she has a wonderful sense of humor....I feel like she understands me and listens to me and I am so grateful for that.

I have been through many agencies and case managers and this has been, by far, the best experience I have had with everyone that works there!

John is amazing! We are so happy to have his services for our son. He has been a wonderful fit for our family, and I would most definitely recommend him to others.

The agency as a whole is really great! Everyone is super kind and nice, and you can tell you all care about the people you are working with.

What I love about working with Kathryn is her focus on checking in with me, both during and after sessions. She's made sure I'm comfortable speaking with her during the session and if she felt she did or said something to make me feel uncomfortable, she addresses it during the next session. Those two things make it easier for me to be open with her about the things I need to talk about.

Kevin has been great. He really takes the time to build a relationship and trust, and my son is feeling comfortable and now finally has someone to talk to.

Nick is a really great therapist. He's helped me through a lot, and I feel he has really contributed to my change for the better.

John is great! I honestly can't believe he just started because he is more professional and well-versed than most of my previous therapists. You can tell he actually cares. He cares about giving us the tools to use and good perspective so we leave with tools we need for life instead of just someone to talk to.

I always leave my sessions in a much better and more positive, confident mood.

Katelyne has been so helpful to me. I'm a solitary creature and spend a lot of time alone, but even a guy like me needs someone to talk to. She listens to me and makes me not feel so alone.

Melissa was worth the waitlist to get in with her. I wouldn’t trade my time with her for all the tea in China. She always makes me feel better by the end of our session(s) and I even feel better just knowing I am scheduled to meet with her.
