About ReGeneration

The Beginnings

Fritz Maurer MA, NCC, LPC       Owner of ReGeneration 

Career life for Fritz started in the aerospace industry; a family machining & fabricating business founded by his immigrant grandfather. Even in this field of manufacturing Fritz had the nick-name "the Couch."  People sought his listening ear and experienced his compassion. This natural ability became a new passion and career as he returned to school in mid-life. First finishing up his undergraduate degree at Albertus Magnus in New Haven, CT in Industrial and Organizational Psychology, then quickly into pursuing his masters in Counseling at Alliance Theology Seminary in Nyack, NY.  

With extensive experience in church ministry, missions, leadership, and working closely with pastors as well as teaching, preaching and leading worship, Fritz continued to gain extensive experience with 10 years in residential treatment settings. First as Director of Counseling at His Mansion Ministries in New Hampshire, then as a lead therapist in a private dual diagnosis group home in Manchester, NH. Finally, as Interim Director/Counselor and house parents with his wife Gretchen, for a men's transitional recovery home, in Eastford, CT.

Laura Douglas  MA LPC 

I specialize in treating children, adolescences, and adults with depression, anxiety, aggression, co-dependency, trauma, addiction/recovery, and dual diagnosis. My experience and training has allowed me to work with clients suffering with self-harming, suicidal ideation, trauma, PTSD, mood instability, autism, behavior problems, grief, chronic and acute health issues, and mental illness.  

I have a particular interest in working with families and children around issues related to behavior problems, communication, relationship issues, parenting, and anxiety. Therapy can be a helpful tool in reducing confusion and repeating self-defeating behaviors while improving your interpersonal skills.   

There are many life changes both positive and negative we face daily. Sometimes we get stuck in our emotions, feelings and unhealthy behaviors. Whether you are new to therapy, working on maintaining stability, or seeking to address the underlying issues, together we can determine the best course of action and interventions for your personality and needs to help you reach your goals.

Open to you is to include your faith or spirituality within your treatment; I have been educated in multiple religious, spiritual, and cultural accommodations to include in your treatment upon your request.
