Hello, my name is Maureen LaMarca. I am a Licensed Master Social Worker in the state of NY. I have worked in the mental health field for over 15 years. I’ve specialized in working with women and more specifically, women who have suffered some type of trauma. I am skilled in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy.
I worked as a therapist for the majority of my career in mental health. There was a large disconnect with me while being a therapist as we are taught to not disclose personal information about ourselves to our clients.Disclosing some of your story is much more welcomed in the Chemical Dependency and Addiction field that is welcomed. See, I am a survivor in many categories of that word but I couldn’t share that. It pained me because I know how I felt when I was counseled by rape survivors. Knowing that deep down, they understood me, how I felt, what I was going through, gave me validation that I was not alone/ It gave me hope. Yet for me, I was not able to give it back to the women I was working with while in a counseling setting.
It is why yet again, I have felt the need to blast out of the cocoon I was housed in so that I could re-emerge changed. Much like the butterfly, I felt I was yet again renewed. Enter in Life and Empowerment Coaching.
