About Me

Jenna Daly, LCSW: Photograph by Melissa Mullen PhotographyI’m a clinical social worker, with a focus on health and parenting, based in South Portland, Maine.

As a counselor, I use common sense and humor - as well as theory and experience - to provide my clients with guidance and support as they confront life's challenges.
I strongly believe that small changes can make a large difference in your life. We are all faced with real obstacles, and often initial change is easy. I work with my clients to help them stay motivated for long-term change and improved relationships.

We’ll work to establish a road forward that brings you to the future you envision — but our work together is about simple, straightforward steps to get you to the life you deserve to lead.
