Lincoln Gifford - MA/LCPC
Lincoln gifford


After retiring about 3 years ago from a long career in Information Technology (IT) I decided to pursue a more meaningful occupation serving as a Clinical Mental Health Counselor. I have been married for 37 years and am currently an empty nester with 3 adult children. I have more than 20 years of pastoral care experience working in churches in the US and abroad, helping culturally diverse populations with issues covering the entire lifespan. I have lived through childhood trauma, parenting and family issues, a challenging career, and caregiving for elderly family members.

Treatment Approach:

I take a person-centered coaching approach to therapy, emphasizing acceptance, mindfulness, and self-compassion. I help clients identify their strengths, values, engender hope, an
collaboratively develop a goal-oriented treatment plan. I use Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive Behavioral (CBT), Motivational Interviewing, Trauma Informed, Strength-Based, Family System, and Child Behavior Modification approaches.


Have worked with incarcerated adolescents, Home/Community Treatment, Christian Counseling, and 20 years pastoral care experience helping culturally diverse people with issues across the lifespan. I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor (LCPC) in MA and ME.
