I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with 30 years experience in a variety of settings. My clients have included people dealing with Depression, Anxiety and other mood disorders; Chronic Illness; Childhood Trauma; Gender and Sexual Identity Issues; and Substance Abuse. I strive to create a warm, inviting and judgement free space for my clients to share their issues and concerns. Together we explore how you came to be who you are today and evaluate where you want to be in your life going forward. Therapy is a process of self-discovery and my role is to be a knowledgable and compassionate guide. I help to build insight by actively listening and sharing observations and tools to promote self-awareness and improved coping skills.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Maureen Coley. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.
Maureen is always there when I need an answer, help, or (when necessary) a swift kick in the pants. She constantly reminds me how strong I am and how far I’ve come. She encourages me and validates my feelings while simultaneously ensuring I am grounded in reality.
