Who We Are

Southcoast Counseling Associates is a group of experienced Mental Health professionals who have been offering counseling services in a private practice setting since 2002. As a multidisciplinary group, we have several years of experience providing mental health services in both community and private practice settings.

We provide counseling services to seniors, adults, adolescents, children, families, and couples with a wide range of concerns, including, but not limited to: feeling overwhelmed or stressed, depressed feelings, panic or anxiety, grief and loss, strained relationships or family conflict, current or past trauma recovery, substance abuse or dependence, adjusting to life situations or entering into new phases of life, and more.

  • All of the therapists are providers for all major insurance companies and HMO's.
  • We serve people with Medicaid and Medicare and offer an alternative to being treated in larger, less personal community mental health settings.
  • We can usually offer appointments within two weeks from the date someone calls seeking services.
  • We do all we can to accommodate those who may need to be seen urgently.
  • We have a history of working collaboratively with Psychiatrists and Physicians to ensure that our patients receive well coordinated quality care.
