Thanks for putting your trust in us.


We continue to monitor the Governor's orders and recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and World Health Organization (WHO) and exercise extreme caution for our clients, staff and those most at-risk within our communities. At this time, most sessions are currently being coordinated via telehealth until further notice.

Our offices are temporarily closed to the public and may be visited only by appointment. Please know that office staff will remain available by phone for assistance, to answer any questions, and help with scheduling and payment 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 all sessions can be coordinated via the Zoom for Healthcare user-friendly, secure telehealth portal. During this current state of emergency, clients with all insurances are able to access covered telehealth services from their home.
  • Many scheduling issues will be successfully addressed via telehealth. While our standard cancellation policy does remain in effect, 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.
  • 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 and are actively making plans for a gradual and cautious re-opening.

Our Commitment

Counseling Associates joins the millions around the world who are mourning our country's recent racial violence. While we experience the horror of these events, we recognize these as only the most recent in a long history of institutionalized violence and systemic racism in our country. We stand with those grieving and protesting against these injustices and are committed to examining how discrimination, oppression and racism are reflected in our own organization and in mental health care as a whole. We call on our CA community to engage in individual reflection and confront these themes in their lives and in their work. We can and will do better.


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.
