Sean McLoughlin is a counselor educator in the addiction counseling specialization in the Masters of Science Counseling degree program.  Sean and has been working in the addiction treatment field for over a decade and his goal in working with students is to help them learn how to bring a trauma informed approach to treating clients that struggle with substance use disorders, process and behavioral addictions, mental illness, shock and developmental trauma, and unresolved grief.  His graduate research focused on looking at the ways environment and relationships help shape pathology including intergenerational systemic patterns.  Sean has been studying the cutting edge of trauma resolution for three years at the Somatic Experiencing Trauma Institute and is excited to bring the groundbreaking work of Peter Levine, Bessel van der Kolk, Gabor Mate, and Dan Siegel to the addiction counseling courses.  Sean also passionately researches Archetypal and Depth Psychology as useful tools in counseling interventions and mentors a course in this topic.  One of his goals is to help students embrace the sacred aspects of their work by learning how listen to and invite psyche (soul) into their sessions.
