Professional statement

Ronald Ceppetelli is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker located in Eliot, ME. Ronald offers clients an inclusive, comfortable space to open up about their anxieties, stressors, and fears. Ronald works with clients who face depression, anxiety, relationship conflicts, or poor mental health resulting from aging. Many of his clients want to improve their quality of life. They are looking for tools to use to feel more present in their daily lives and relationships, as well as tools that equip them to handle any roadblocks that come their way.

Ronald practices psychodynamic therapy, meaning that he relies on a strong therapeutic relationship with his clients to encourage them to be introspective. Clients have the opportunity to reflect openly about their thoughts and feelings, receiving feedback and perspective in real time during each session. Ronald focuses the first several sessions on getting to know his clients and gaining their trust. Through psychoanalysis, Ronald supports his clients as they decode their thoughts, impulses, and beliefs. Clients gain insight into how their minds work through this type of therapy, which can be helpful when working to decrease their mental health symptoms.

Ronald earned a Master’s degree in Social Work as well as a doctorate in Psychoanalysis. He enjoys working with individuals, couples, and families to better healthy communication skills, coping strategies, and self-growth. By calling attention to conscious and unconscious motivations, clients better understand who they are and how they function in their daily lives.
