Treating Mind and Spirit as One

Mary Rogers Nummelin, LMSW

Mary is a licensed master social worker providing counseling to individuals, couples and families. As clients wrestle with life’s challenges and pain, Mary partners with them, listening deeply and offering insights with warmth and compassion. Her approach is eclectic, intuitive and mindfulness-based, aimed at addressing each client’s unique needs, and drawing from a wealth of knowledge, experience and training in various therapeutic modalities.

With more than 25 years’ experience as a leadership, career, and executive coach, as well as a learning and development practitioner, Mary trusts the human spirit’s power to heal—to transcend suffering by discovering its meaning and purpose in our lives. Her personal mindfulness practice is grounded in the Plum Village tradition of Thich Nhat Hanh, who affirms, “The way out is in,” by inviting us to accept ourselves, as is, in the present moment.

Mary earned her Master of Social Work and a B.A. and M.A. in history from Stony Brook University. Prior to becoming a therapist, she was a human resources and organizational development leader for corporations and non-profits, where she supported individuals, teams and organizations in discovering how vocation, or “what we do,” intersects with “who we are.”  Mary’s work, past and present, affirms her commitment to provide a safe space for clients to express their authentic selves.
