About Us


South Shore Counseling has been in existence since August of 2001. At that time it was decided that they would create a therapeutic environment that would attempt to meet the needs of a variety of differing populations in the community. 

The two business partners bring together almost fifty years of therapy experience to the agency.  They have worked in a variety of differing organizations throughout their careers and have felt strongly that most clinical settings do not work hard enough to meet the needs of their clientele. It was the goal of this organization from the beginning to provide a safe yet comfortable environment.

We wanted to bring into the community an agency that would be able to accommodate a variety of needs for the client.  We have specialists in marriage counseling and those that work more specifically with children and adolescents.  We have the ability to work with whole families that are in need.  The family can be in treatment with one worker and the children or spouses be seen by another.  Because it is a small intimate setting our therapists make it a point to coordinate treatment amongst one another.  We also have clinicians that have experience with a wide variety of individual treatment issues including; severe mental illness, depression, anxiety issues, gay and lesbian concerns, children with learning disabilities, death and dying, chronic pain as well as a whole host of other therapy issues. 

The partners supervise all the other clinical staff using their vast experience to enable the therapist to give the most personal of treatment.  Our clinical staff will go the extra mile for their clients such as meeting with school districts, appearing on the client’s behalf at fair hearings for disability cases, or coordinating supervised visitations for children involved with child protective services.  The clinical staff knows that to be a part of this agency means that it is necessary to sometimes think outside the box and adapt the treatment to the person or persons involved. 

We are committed to trying to make this agency one that will meet the needs of the client as well as address all the needs that clients typically bring into the therapeutic setting. We strive to make this a warm and comfortable environment for all. We believe that any work which takes place within the setting of a therapist’s office begins with the provider’s heart; if that is not in the right place then how can we as clinician’s ever be able to help our clients meet their full potential.
