Humans are Designed to GROW.
Therapy is DYNAMIC!
My 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 pre-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 for complex conversations without prejudice or judgment. She studies brain-based emotional, attentional, and executive function challenges for more than 13 years to offer you the most current information. She follows prominent researchers, psychologists, and medical doctors who study and publish on brain-based science and brain challenge treatments. Maureen is open to the value in non-traditional professions of mindfulness and in alternative perspectives. While the therapeutic or coaching experience is goal-oriented, you will find her focused on emotions as well.
The pursuit of goals can produce highly unmanageable emotions that get in the way of success.
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 holds onto your conversational intent
in order to summarizethe seeming randomness
of many thoughts into one coherent thought.
Maureen Nolan supports her clients’ emotional resilience development and 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 their attention/intention relationship.
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 non-functional behaviors, to understand their brain’s strengths and weaknesses, and the end-point 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.

Attention Coaching Changes Lives.
Maureen coaches older students, couples, families with challenging children of all ages including emerging adults and their tired/angry/worried parents. You know, the ‘kid’ who won’t get off the couch and doesn’t appear to be motivated. Her clients present with ADHD, ASD, Anxiety, Panic, Depression, Grief, school/academic challenges, TBI, PTSD, and concussion syndrome to name a few. Job loss, academic failure, marital challenges/divorce/family disruption, jail, injury, and sports failure are commonly addressed and processed. Both her coaching and therapeutic skills are separately applied by request.
Athletes and actors and other film industry professionals benefit from her above services and particularly in character development through visualization sessions in Brainspotting.
Maureen’s intention in working with clients is to provide:
- focused brain-based information, to discuss any aspects of your overall health that interferes with your attention, to present new science and professional views on how to achieve personal achievement goals
- a non-judgmental approach to personal growth and achievement
- a healing relationship through which you find safety and encouragement for change
