Welcome to Mill House Counseling Center

We are a group of independent private practitioners serving the therapeutic needs of our Seacoast patients with care and compassion. Please feel free to review the credentials of each of our experienced, licensed professionals by clicking on their biography sections below. You may contact the counselor of your choosing directly by using the phone extension listed, or you are free to call the main number in the office and we will work with you to find the best fit for your particular therapeutic goals and challenges. Since we are not affiliated with a particular health plan, each therapist operates independently and may have different practice hours, forms, and procedures to follow, though collectively we work for the greater good of all our patients. No matter which route you choose to follow, we are happy to discuss your needs. For more information, be sure to also check out our profile on Psychology Today.
