We are Maureen and John Berube, happily married, Licensed Marriage & Family Therapists and co-owners of JMB Family Counseling, LLC.  We are committed to providing accessible, high-quality behavioral healthcare to the community.

Maureen is the primary provider at JMB Family Counseling and comes to the business after a career in corporate America.  In 2006, I traded-in organizational flow charts, corporate presentations and a multi-million-dollar account list to attend Fairfield University, achieving a Masters of Arts degree in Marital & Family Therapy.  After providing care in non-profit agencies working with individuals, couples and families, the decision was made to move into private practice to help clients identify and learn to deal with anxiety, depression, substance abuse, co-occurring disorders and trauma.  I have a special interest in working with couples, employees who are involved with restructuring or career changes, problems with family of origin and PTSD.
