IMPORTANT NOTICE

To CA clients and our local community:
As our practice, communities, and families navigate the Coronavirus (COVID-19) public health emergency, we want to state clearly that our highest priority is the safety and well-being of you, our clients, our team and our communities.

3/17/20
In an effort to exercise extreme caution for our clients, staff and those most at-risk within our communities, we have made the decision to close the reception windows in our offices until further notice to comply with guidelines for social-distancing as recommended by both the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and World Health Organization (WHO). Please know that office staff will remain available by phone for assistance, to answer any questions or help with scheduling issues. Please do not hesitate to call.

What We Are Doing

Thank you for your patience and collaboration as we work through these challenging times. We are working hard to minimize disruption of care for those of you who count on our services, do our part to minimize transmission of the virus, and maintain and support the health of our valued employees.

  • We have expanded our telehealth program so that most sessions can be coordinated via the Zoom for Healthcare user-friendly, secure telehealth portal. During this current state of emergency, most clients will be able to access covered telehealth services from their home.
    • If you have been directed to self-quarantine, you will be able to access telehealth services with your therapist.
    • If you are sick and still wanting to meet, your session can be coordinated via telehealth.
    • If you are home caring for other family members, you can request a telehealth session.
    • You may request a telehealth session in order to comply with social distancing guidelines.
  • Many scheduling issues will be successfully addressed via telehealth. In those cases where an appointment needs to be canceled due to illness or the care of family members and telehealth is not a possibility, cancellation fees will be waived during this public health emergency.
  • For now, our offices will remain open for appointments that are not being conducted via telehealth.
  • We are directing that employees showing symptoms or reporting exposure to the virus will stay home.
  • All meetings will be carried out via video conferencing.
  • We have directed our cleaning services to carry out CDC recommendations and will be attending to frequently touched surfaces daily.
  • We continue to monitor COVID-19 reports from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the NH Department of Health and Human Services (NH DHHS) and information from our local communities so we can respond quickly to continue to ensure the safety of our clients and the CA team.
Please contact our offices with any questions or to request a telehealth session. We understand that this is a stressful time for many and we are working diligently to respond in creative and safe ways to respond to the needs of our clients, our team and our community.

Counseling


Counseling works by helping you get a new perspective on things. Your counselor will help you examine your thoughts, feelings and behaviors in a more objective way. You can learn more effective ways of dealing with a situation or problem, even those that seem hopeless.

At Counseling Associates we take a strengths-based counseling approach to assist you in moving toward your goals and opening doors to new possibilities. With multiple clinicians and areas of expertise, we are able to offer comprehensive, specialized services for adults, children, adolescents, couples and families.

Collaboration


Counseling is about collaboration. You and your therapist will both work together to create the change you are looking for. We are committed to using our skills to help you harness the strengths and capacities you already possess in order to more effectively move out of the problem and into the solution.

You may also have other resources in place. We value the collaborative relationships we have with medical, school and other professionals in the area that enable us to offer high quality, coordinated care when requested.

Convenience


What is best for you? Counseling Associates has four offices conveniently located in the communities of New London, Newport, Claremont, and Hanover, New Hampshire.

In addition to normal business hours, we offer a range of early morning and evening hours as well as limited weekend hours. While these hours tend to be in high demand, we will work with you to create a schedule that works for your schedule.
