Ronald Laney holds a Master of Arts in Professional Counseling from Lindenwood University (Belleville Campus) and is a  Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in the state of Missouri.  Ronald has a varied background in both graphic design and private aviation prior to becoming a counselor in midlife, in addition to having played an active role in parenting his children.  He also has extensive experience practicing mindfulness and meditation in Buddhist monasteries.

Ronald’s strengths within counseling include helping with depression, anxiety, fear, irritability or anger, spirituality, grief, attachment, and authenticity as well as relationships with self and others (including couples).  He has special interest and experience in men’s issues, including men who may be struggling with finding their place in the world and grappling with manhood in our current cultural context. 

From Ronald:

“Human existence is inherently difficult. Coupled with the conditioning we receive in family and society, it can become altogether overwhelming, particularly as we grapple with the immense confusion that can arise as we experience mortality, isolation, freedom, and meaninglessness. It seems there is a great question worthy of our mutual exploration — how might we utilize our suffering and limited time here to grow into wiser, more compassionate beings?”

I do not have easy answers, but…a great deal depends on love, and that when people are loved they change.
