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.


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.


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.
