Humans are Designed to GROW.
Therapy is DYNAMIC!
Maureen’s client remarked, ‘I think everyone should be in therapy.’ Full disclosure is that he was in school to become a therapist, so his perspective was as a professional. But, he had a point.
What’s it like to have a dedicated listener, to have someone’s complete attention without interruption? Someone who promises to keep your intention foremost? A professional who will hold your own sometimes opposing points of view until you are ready to look into your heart and to move forward, to release a block?
Maureen Nolan’s training in neuro-diverse challenges prepares her to specialize in complex conversations without prejudice or judgment. She studied brain-based emotional, attention, and executive function challenges for 13 years and follows prominent researchers, psychologists, and medical doctors who study and publish on brain-based science and brain challenge treatments. Maureen is also open to the value in non-traditional professions of mindfulness and in alternative perspectives.
A client in her practice may have attention challenges such that distracting conversations are normal. Her clients interrupt, forget what they are saying, and wander off topic. It is sometimes difficult for them to stay on topic because an interesting thought interrupts the conversational flow. Maureen knows this is a challenge that goes on throughout the day for the client and that it is both physically and emotionally uncomfortable. This discomfort interferes with their personal, social, and relationship success and happiness.
Maureen Nolan supports her clients’ emotional resilience development and their growing emotional strength. She supports their ability to learn to reframe, to refocus and to reconnect in order to create a new and more substantial emotional standard that withstands the onslaught of daily surprises.
Today’s average person is under an assault of the senses that appears to be like ADHD, that may be situational ADHD, or that is diagnostically ADHD. Attention is fluid for most of Maureen’s clients who seek her therapeutic expertise to reframe, refocus and reconnect with their own attention and intentions. She tethers the diverse thoughts while her client investigates the attention/intention relationship in her actions.
Maureen’s clients generally have a few functional diagnoses, sometimes known as dual diagnoses or maybe as twice exceptional. She supports their learning to separate out the non-functional behaviors, to understand their brain’s strengths and weaknesses, and the relevance to their personal experience and needs. Together they work to develop functional and thoughtful action. Humans are designed to change and Maureen Nolan honors that you are creative, resourceful, and whole in your current growth experience.
We are not fixed in place – Humans are designed to grow. Life is dynamic, not static.
Maureen works with older students, couples, families with challenging children, and adults whose intention it is to be creative, resourceful and whole.
