OUT Maine is delighted to welcome Maura Derrivan LCPC-c (she / her) to its team! Derrivan joins the team as Youth Engagement Coordinator and brings his mental health expertise to the position that works directly with LGBTQ + * youth in Maine.
She received a Master of Science in Psychological Counseling and Services in 2019 from Salem State University in Massachusetts and recently worked as a mental health counselor with children, adolescents and adults in southern Maine. She enjoys working with children and adolescents and brings her experience of working with families to foster healthy and positive relationships. We look forward to his help in deepening and broadening our support for youth, parents and families in these stressful times.
Outside of work, you can find Derrivan working on a craft project, exploring southern Maine, or spending time with his dog Beker and cats Loraine and Ravioli.
