Common Questions

Your comprehensive guide to NSCC’s counseling services. 

Our counseling process begins with a thorough screening assessment to understand your unique needs and/or concerns. From there, your selected therapist will work with you to develop an individualized treatment plan and provide evidence-based therapy practices to help you achieve your goals. 

We do! NSCC accepts most major insurances, including: 

Aetna, Allways Health Partners, Blue Cross, Cigna, Fallon, Harvard Pilgrim, MassHealth, MBHP, Medicare B, OneCare, Tufts, Tufts Public, United Health, WellSense and many more!

At NSCC, we understand that finding the right therapist can be a daunting task. To start, we recommend looking for a therapist who has the necessary qualifications and experience in treating the specific issues you're currently facing. We suggest scheduling an initial consultation with a variety of therapists to determine which therapist best fits your needs and who you feel most comfortable with. 

The duration of counseling varies depending on the individual's specific needs and goals. Some may see significant improvement in a few sessions, while others may need ongoing therapy for several months. Your therapist will work with you to regularly assess your progress and adjust your treatment plan as needed to ensure you are making progress. The ultimate goal is for you to feel better and be able to live your life to the fullest, and counseling will continue for as long as necessary to achieve this. 

At the end of the day, therapy is a personal choice but it can be highly beneficial for anyone seeking support and guidance in navigating life's challenges. If you're experiencing symptoms such as depression, anxiety, stress, relationship difficulties, or are having trouble coping with a difficult life event, therapy can be a valuable tool to help you get better. The decision to begin therapy is a brave one, and we are here to support you every step of the way.
