Maureen Roesler, LPC. The counseling relationship with those I work with is of a collaborative nature. We work together, with the goal of processing experiences and obtaining a sense of wholeness, or more aptly put, finding peace from within. We explore what may be driving your emotions, feelings and desires. We travel the road together, helping you to find completeness within yourself.
We probe, we talk about those areas in life that are most affecting you, and sometimes we dive into the tough stuff. In truth, if we don’t dig in to understand what drives our motives and behaviors we will never come to find out who we are, our true selves. My goal is for you understand who you are, what motivates or drives you to do and act, or not act. We work together to help you understand what is and is not within your control and find acceptance and strength to move forward in your life journey.
In my experience there is no typical client type. Most people have a combination of issues that drive behaviors, emotions, feelings and actions. I work with a variety of clients from general anxiety to complex trauma.
My communication style
Be reassured I am an accepting, open, empathic and easygoing therapist. But also know that I will help you to see where decisions are hurting or helping you. My job is to help you to figure out what you are doing or not doing that is beneficial for your life journey
My journey to mental healthcare
After working in physical therapy for approximately 27 years I felt a desire to do more, to help people on a deeper level. I had witnessed how trauma, anxiety, fear, grief, depression or a multitude of other issues can often bring about intense emotions that can leave people feeling overwhelmed. I eventually embarked on the journey to Graduate School. where I earned my Masters Degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. For over the past 4 and a half years I have been helping people who struggle to connect within themselves (body and mind) as well as between themselves and others.
My goals for you
Goal setting is collaborative, we work on what you feel is the most pressing issue that has brought you into counseling.
My first session with you
When I meet the client for the first time, I try to make the experience as less stressful as possible, as I know meeting a new therapist can be anxiety provoking. I try to convey a calming, empathic and supporting environment for each of my clients. Furthermore, I am not opposed to clients asking questions of what to expect and is expected from both parties within the therapeutic relationship. We are in the journey together
