Maureen McLaughlin
Mental Health Therapist and
Life Coach




The heart of my approach is very strengths-based. The things people live through continuously amaze me. In sessions I work through different psychodynamic, somatic, transpersonal, and artistic means.

I work very relationally, given that we are all a part of this world, this “human thing,” together.

As human beings, we store trauma deeply in the body, and there can’t be complete healing until those memories are released and processed through the nervous system. 


Being a person is tough sometimes. For everyone! That’s why I value kindness above all else. We are all just doing our best to find our way in the world.  We have all been hurt, and we all make mistakes.



I have experience with individual, couples, and family therapy in many environments including private practice settings and counseling centers. I have worked with children in the foster care system in both group homes and an elementary school. I have worked with developmentally disabled children and non-verbal, developmentally disabled senior citizens. I provided group and individual therapy as well as case management at a drug and alcohol rehabilitation center with clients who had recently attempted suicide, were recently released from prison, or were homeless.


Specialties include:

Depression, Anxiety, PTSD CPTSD  





Grief, Addiction harm reduction





Non-denomnational Spirituality, including agnostics and atheists
