Cornerstones of Maine is a clinically-focused transitional living program located in Portland and Biddeford, Maine. Our psychologist-owned and operated program assists 18 to 28-year-old creative & bright emerging young adults who are struggling to live and function independently. We provide a therapeutic & experiential approach that gives structure and support based on each client’s individual needs. Our residences have accommodations for all genders and are LGBTQIA+ affirming. The average length of stay is 6 to 12 months.

We follow a dual therapist model and each client has weekly individual and group therapy sessions and monthly family therapy sessions. Each client is provided 1:1 support from a Life Skills & Academics Coach, who works directly with their primary and secondary therapist. Our individualized program includes professional development, academic reengagement, and real world immersion. These experiences, along with enrichment opportunities, promote emotional growth, personal value, and life purpose.

The core mission of our program is to help young adults on the path toward self-reliance and autonomy. We work with creative & bright clinically complex young adults who are psychologically stable, but need some extra support and scaffolding along the way. Achieving this goal isn’t easy and requires a comprehensive approach that provides an opportunity to both learn and practice the skills that lead to independent living.
