Group Offerings





We aim to guide and support girls experiencing difficulties with peers at school and in other social interactions. We will use a curriculum that addresses basics of friendship and conversation, managing emotions and conflict, as well as developing positive self image and empathy.


This group is in the preliminary planning stage so the age range, appropriateness of each child and focus of the curriculum will be assessed and adjusted as the group comes together.


Meetings will be 50 minutes in length and be held weekly for 4 weeks and a rate of $15 per session.





This series is designed not only to help you break the busyness and distraction of life, but also guides you in learning to slow down and reclaim your focus, attention, and calm. And the key to this change? Mindfulness.

Sessions are 50 minutes in length and are $15 per session. Please call to discuss group rates.

Meeting dates and scheduling are still in the planning phases. Let us know what works for your schedule!






This group aims to support caregivers and spouses of those suffering from memory loss

Calling our office at 484-746-3112 is the best way to set up your appointment. If you’re not ready to schedule just yet, we’re always happy to answer your questions or address your concerns by phone or email as well.

The time and money you spend on your mental, emotional, and relational well-being may be one of the most important things you invest in. The benefits of therapy are often priceless with long-lasting positive effects for you and your loved ones.
New London Counseling Center operates as a fee-for-service facility. The fee charged for each session is the financial responsibility of the client at the time of service.
 We highly recommend that you contact your health insurance provider before your first appointment to find out if you are eligible for out-of-network reimbursement and how the process works. We will provide you with an invoice to submit to your health insurance company.
Therapy may be paid for using your Health Savings or Flex Spending Accounts. Our fees are $100 per therapy per 50-minute session. 25 minute sessions may be available upon request.
If you are uninsured or have a financial barrier that prevents you from paying the full rate, please contact us to discuss how to apply for scholarships and subsidized therapy costs. A sliding scale will be used to determine any discount rates
To aid as many people in our community as possible, clients receiving a therapy scholarship will be limited to 8 (50-minute sessions) OR 16 (25-minute sessions) every six months. Clients in need of continued treatment can request additional sessions after the six-month time period has lapsed.
Households will be able to receive up to two separate scholarship  services through NLCC at one time. This may be a combination of individual counseling, family counseling, or couples counseling, eg. a family may receive individual counseling for the mother and family counseling, thereby totaling two services.
