About Me

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Connecticut with over 10 years of experience working as a Counselor. I have worked with adolescents (and their families) experiencing a wide range of issues including anxiety, depression, ADHD, challenges with learning and attitudes towards school. I have worked with adolescents experiencing challenges related to decision making, including coming up with personal boundaries and not only following family rules, from wearing bike helmets and checking in with parents when outside of the home, to making safe choices in the community and on social media and gaming. I've worked with many adolescent clients going through conflict with friends, siblings, as well as with peers outside their group of friends, as well as those feeling left out or bullied.

Some of my most meaningful work has involved assisting adolescents in learning how to ask for help and guidance, as well as developing closer relationships with parent(s). I have worked with many adolescents who expressed wanting a closer, more positive relationship with their parent(s) yet have not known how to express this. I have worked with many parent(s) experiencing difficulties and frustrations regarding communication and desired more positive, meaningful interactions their adolescent children, but felt defeated.

Using an integrative approach respecting family culture and values, including cognitive-behavioral, interpersonal, mindfulness and emotional regulation approaches, I look forward to working with your child and your family. To adolescents reading my profile thinking about getting counseling, I am interested in helping you find ways to improve whatever it is you are dealing with.

Maureen made me feel accepted and validated immediately. She is easy to talk to and very welcoming and listens to what you have to say. She can explain things clearly as well, helping me understand medical terms and how things work. I'm very grateful to have been matched with her.

I have been talking to Maureen for 3 weeks now. She has truly made a difference to me in that short amount of time. I feel heard, validated and supported. I would highly recommend Maureen.

So thankful we matched with her. She's insightful, smart and really down to earth. She's so kind and accommodating. My partner and I are really grateful and excited to continue the work. We've already made progress :) thank you!

Maureen is very professional in her approach and has made me feel very comfortable already. I don't feel that I need to hold back anything with her. I know it's the beginning for me but you know when you are going to click with someone and this is so important for me to be able to express my feelings. Its the first step to getting myself the help I need to overcome my past traumas and I look forward to my weekly sessions with Maureen.
