Our Team

Our team at New Milford Counseling Center stays mindful of what you are experiencing when you start to look for a counselor. The way you feel is hard enough. Making a call to talk with a person you don’t know about painful and private issues is often confusing. A mental health condition can impact your daily wellbeing. Our counseling can make the difference when you feel ready to do the work. By utilizing counseling as a tool to gain the strength you have to make the process work best. Above all, we are here for you as part of our community when you reach out for help.
