Child and adolescents

1120 Center Street, Auburn
62 Elm Street, Portland

As a Psychiatrist, I will provide coordinated psychiatric assessment and medication management care for children and adolescent from our satellite office locations of Health Affiliates Maine in Auburn and Portland.

I have extensive experience with treating adolescent eating disorders, youth with cutting and self-harming behaviors, and children with depression, anxiety, and attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).  I am trained in the use of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) to help youth and families manage dysfunctional thoughts, feelings, and behaviors.  In addition, I am intensively trained in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) which is helpful in reducing emotion dysregulation, distress intolerance, self-injurious behavior, and suicidal ideation.

Older adolescents and adults

1049 Main Street, Unit 2S.
Mount Desert, ME  04660

As a Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner, I will provide coordinated medication management care for older adolescents and adult patients in and around the Mount Desert Island area.  I have been practicing in this area since 2011 and have a generalist approach. I am deeply rooted in this community, and Downeast Maine, going back many generations.  As a result, I am invested and connected to the people here.

I am now offering genomic testing to help identify the most effective treatment based on my patients’ DNA.  This may be helpful in treating individuals whose symptoms have been resistant or who have had trouble tolerating medications.  Furthermore,  I will also be accepting patients interested in Tele-Psychiatry, which are those who may have transportation issues, may be living in rural areas, struggle to leave home, frequently travel or have busy schedules.

Jess-Manaker-profile-325x325Jessica Arsenault, MD Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist

Child and adolescents

Greater Bangor Area

As a Board Certified Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist I provide psychiatric care to patients in the greater Bangor area, where I have been practicing for 10 years. I have experience treating a wide range of issues affecting children and teens, including anxiety, depression, attention deficit disorder, trauma, autism/developmental delays, and bipolar illness.

Originally from Orono, I returned to Maine to begin my career in 2004, where I have worked primarily in a community mental health setting.  I enjoy collaborating with other providers and educators to serve families using a team-based approach.  I carefully consider all factors contributing to emotional and behavioral distress, and partner with families in developing strategies to improve functioning and overall well-being.

Due to challenges I have encountered working with other insurance companies, I have had to limit the number of commercial carriers I accept. Instead I offer the option to self-pay for my services and I will provide the documentation you need to request reimbursement from your insurance for out-of-network services.  Families should check with their insurance carrier to confirm they have out-of-network coverage before pursuing this option.  Families with high-deductible insurance coverage may apply the payment for my services to their annual deductible.  The fee for a 90 minute initial evaluation is $300, and 30 minute follow-up visits are $120.
