Maureen O’Donnell, MS, LIMHP, LADC, CEAP

Maureen ODonnellMaureen has been trained in family systems therapy and uses it in her work with individuals, couples, children, teens, and their families.  She believes that people act with courage as they reach out to a counselor, in that the decision involves embracing the unknown and being open to change. Maureen says, “I love to hear each person’s story when the begin counseling and to see how it develops as they tap into their own strength and resilience. I find that peoples’ best answers come from within themselves.  It is an honor and a blessing to travel with people as they journey from feeling at their lowest, to discovering new areas of strength.”

Maureen’s experience in employee assistance since 1985 has resulted in a special corporate training focus. She conducts a variety of training programs for both management and employees and thoroughly enjoys designing programs specifically for the needs of an organization. Maureen says, “I absolutely love working with an entire organization. I often find that people exceed their own expectations in their ability to participate in group wide positive change.”  Maureen leads groups and efforts with administrators, managers, students, and employees.

She is certified as a drug/alcohol counselor and applies this training in her evaluations and treatment at Arbor.
