Counseling at New Directions Center


The practitioners at The New Directions Center are trained therapists, psychologists and social workers who see individuals, couples and families from all backgrounds. Many of them, including our clinicians in training are from the Council for Relationships, the oldest counseling center in continuous operation in Pennsylvania. The Council's mission is to help people interact in healthier, more fulfilling ways.

Our care is based on certain core beliefs: that all people are valued by God at each moment of their lives; that each of us is called to wholeness and a life of meaning; and grace is available to everyone, practitioner and client, to facilitate a process of healing and growth. Because life’s challenges are often complex and diverse, we offer many types of therapy. Problems we can help with include, but are not limited to:

  • relationship/marital issues
  • depression and anxiety
  • bereavement
  • chronic illness
  • child and adolescent problems
  • addiction
  • sexuality concerns, including LGBT issues
  • domestic violence
  • trauma
  • eating disorders

Fees are on a sliding scale based on income. No one is ever turned away from our services due to financial limitations. We do not currently accept insurance.
