About Our Clinicians

We currently offer therapy via telehealth and at our three New Hampshire locations.

Our Locations

Please note: For the safety of our clients and clinicians, the addresses of our offices will not be posted on our website. If you are a current or new client and want to know the location of your appointment, please call our intake line at 603.255.3877 option 0. We will verify that you are a client (or their caregiver) with our practice before we give you our address.

We are a training hub! What this means is that many of the clinicians in our practice are conditionally licensed. They are under the supervision of a licensed clinician and working toward completing their hours for full licensure. Unless you see the acronyms LCMHC or LICSW after someone’s name, they are a conditionally licensed clinician in accordance with NH RSA 330-A: 18d.
