Maureen Sulliman

LPC

About Me

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Connecticut with over 10 years of experience working as a Counselor. I have worked with clients in different age groups and phases of life, experiencing a wide range of concerns including anxiety, depression, ADHD, parenting and co-parenting challenges, relationship issues, low self esteem and self image issues. I have worked with many clients who have experienced various types of trauma, as well as those who have been struggling with issues of grief, loss, and life transitions. I have worked with Servicemembers, Veterans of all ages as well as their families.

My therapy style is interactive and collaborative, and I respect that the decision to begin counseling is rarely easy. Many people don't know exactly where to start when they begin counseling and this is absolutely to be expected, as this is part of our work together. While my approach is integrative, I find aspects of the humanistic and cognitive-behavioral theories are often helpful throughout counseling.

Considering every person is unique, with their own life experiences, strengths, needs and goals, I believe it is important to work with my clients to make sure counseling is not only individualized but productive as well. Thank you for taking the time to read my profile and I look forward to working with you to define and work towards your goals.

I've had quite a bit of therapy throughout my life and Maureen is quite different from anyone I have seen previously. Maybe it's because I'm getting older, but I can talk to Maureen more like a friend than like a therapist.

Whatever the reason, Maureen seems to have penetrated my shell and somehow managed to see parts of me that even I can't see (good parts).

The other day, I was talking with a friend and I put it this way: once a week I get to be seen as a smart and overall good person. That's really rare for me and I think it's essential to my therapy.

Maureen has been very helpful and insightful in my therapy. And I appreciate her asking me questions that make sense for me.

Maureen is amazing. Even after just a couple sessions she listens to what you have to say and responds in a way that is best fit for you and your needs. She’s open to any criticism and adjustments to help you feel better. I would recommend her over anyone else

Actively listens to her client. Engages in reflective moments and genuinely tries to solve problems for you by providing the necessary tools.

Maureen has been great and gives me good advice and also a different outlook and positive view on my current situation.

I’m very grateful to have been paired with a therapist that is so understanding and kind. She respects my boundaries and I feel so comfortable opening up when I need her.

Maureen has been a breath of fresh air as a therapist for me personally. Just through my initial message when we were matched she instantly caught on to the fact that I have trouble driving the conversation. And she has helped me to have talking points throughout our session and take pressure off of myself. She is thoughtful with her responses and extremely careful not to cross any lines I’m not ready to cross yet. I would recommend her to anyone seeking therapy

Written by H.A. on Feb 09, 2022 after therapy with Maureen for 3 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, grief, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, and coping with life changes

My first few sessions were helpful & positive. I felt like Maureen understood me and what I was experiencing. Over our time together, Maureen made a couple of comments that didn’t sit well with me, and were quite damaging. I do think Maureen’s heart was in the right place but her delivery was sometimes quite damaging. I sometimes felt that Maureen didn’t have time for me, and her calls were often muffled with lots of background noise. I hope she is doing well.

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.

Written by K.R. on Oct 19, 2021 after therapy with Maureen for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, sleeping disorders, self esteem, and adhd

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.

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.

Work with me!
