"Maureen provided an invaluable service to our family. Her extensive experience in mental health and pharmacology allowed her to unearth a medication side effect that was ruining my mother’s sleep.


Now my mother sleeps, so my father sleeps! And I am not worrying about them both being exhausted. Thank you, Maureen."

"We called upon Maureen Nadeau last year during a very difficult time in my mother’s life; she had just been diagnosed with cancer. Maureen’s professionalism, expertise and calm demeanor was just what we needed.  She was able to help my mother understand what to expect during her illness and teach her how to relax and cope with the uncertainty of her illness. She still draws upon the techniques Maureen taught her even today. Maureen was invaluable and will always hold a special place in our lives. We will always be grateful for her support and guidance during our time of need."
