Our philosophy is about working together so that we can create a therapeutic environment from which you can grow and improve your life.
Individual therapy (sometimes called “psychotherapy” or “counseling”) is a process through which clients work one-on-one with a trained therapist—in a safe, caring, and confidential environment—to explore their feelings, beliefs, or behaviors, work through challenging or influential memories, identify aspects of their lives that they would like to change, better understand themselves and others, set personal goals, and work toward desired change.
Couples therapy is a means of resolving problems and conflicts that couples have not been able to handle effectively on their own. It involves both partners sitting down with a trained professional to discuss their thoughts and feelings.
Family therapy is a type of psychotherapy that helps families or individuals within a family understand and improve the way family members interact with each other and resolve conflicts together.
This type of therapy strengthens the entire family, allowing each family member to rely on one another to work towards desired family change.
Guided by your family therapist, you'll learn new ways to interact and overcome old problems. You'll set individual and family goals and work on ways to achieve them as a family.

Substance Abuse and Addiction
Substance abuse and dependency is a family affair. It’s like a tsunami effect which leaves in its wake feelings of disillusionment, despair, guilt, shame, and fear. The isolation which dependency breeds can be life threatening, as there is little contact with those who really want to help.
North Andover Counseling presents as a good place to start your inquiry into what effectively can be done to help you and your loved one. It all begins with a phone call.
