Treating Mind and Spirit as One

Mary Rogers Nummelin, LMSW

Mary is a licensed master social worker providing counseling to individuals, couples and families facing a variety of life challenges, including anxiety, stress and depression, grief and loss, employment changes, relationship and elder-care issues, life and career transitions, the healing of childhood trauma, and the search for identity and life purpose. Mary partners with her clients, 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 embrace ourselves, as we are, 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;” a place where she found her own calling as a therapist.  Mary’s work, past and present, affirms her commitment to hold space for clients to realize and express their authentic selves, to heal and find peace.
