About me

Hello I am Maureen. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over 15 years experience working as a Mental Health Counselor as well as a social work educator. My intention is to provide a safe, secure and supportive environment to address the concerns you may be experiencing that is getting in the way of living life the way that is most beneficial to you. I specialize in helping to develop and learn coping skills that will help to decrease anxiety, stress, depression. I primarily work with older adolescents and adults, from various different backgrounds. I have worked extensively with both military-connected, veteran and civilian clients to help process trauma and abuse, as well as relationship concerns. I specialized in working with those who have been diagnosed with a Severe Mental Illness, Personality disorder, PTSD and Addiction.

Life happens and it gets in the way. There are many times when you may feel stuck in the highs and lows, and unsure of if you are sinking or swimming. Perhaps your life circumstances are a result of relationship concerns, addiction, past trauma, anxiety or living with negativity. These can create barriers to you achieving your goals, while potentially impacting both your health and well-being. I believe that by taking this step in seeking help you are interested in moving forward. My role is to help you on your journey.

Scheduling: I do have additional times available than what is shown. Please let me know if you need a time that you do not see upon first glance.

After spending over 2 years with Maureen, she isn’t afraid to call me out when it’s warranted and keeps me brutally honest with myself. I adore her and am so grateful for her guidance and support for these few years

Maureen is incredible. She is the perfect combination of professional and caring. I feel so supported by her and know she will also be honest with me. I knew after a few session it was going to be a good fit, but I would say the last month or so things have really taken off in a positive way and I know my sessions with Maureen play an enormous role in that. I used to dread therapy and now I usually look forward to it. This week I actually asked to move my appointment up because of how helpful Maureen is in making my day-to-day life less stressful and anxiety-inducing. I definitely still have progress to make and always will, but Maureen makes it seem so much more manageable than it used to seem. I would recommend both BetterHelp and Maureen with a million stars.

Maureen is so kind and an amazing listener. I really appreciate how she asks the types of questions that make me dig a little deeper. She responds to me in a timely manner between sessions, and I always feel calm after I speak with her.
