Robert and Pamela Amer started Harborside Counseling Services (HCS) in 1990 in Newburyport, Massachusetts. It has since grown to a practice of 35 psychotherapists working out of offices in Beverly and Newburyport Massachusetts. As we have grown, so has the breadth of services that we are able to offer to our clients and our vision of our place in the community. We are committed to creating an outstanding work environment that allows associates to enjoy a high degree of both autonomy and collegiality while offering our clients a variety of high quality services.

A sample of some of the services offered include:

  • Individual
  • Couple's and family therapy for all age groups
  • Psychopharmacology
  • A wide variety of groups for various ages, populations, and needs

We are a group of experienced, independently practicing and seasoned mental health professionals. We come from diverse training and backgrounds in mental health clinics, educational settings, and inpatient and substance abuse treatment programs. With an interdisciplinary approach based on our collective experience, we are able to offer a wide array of mental health services to our clients. This allows clients to get many of their mental health needs met under one roof, whether those needs be for individual adult, child, or adolescent therapies or for couples or family therapy, medication management or group treatment. In addition, we coordinate client care, as appropriate and with written permission of the client, to provide the best service possible to our clients.

In addition to the array of services offered, we are providers for most insurance and managed care companies and support many local businesses through their EAPs (Employee Assistance Programs). Our referral sources are many and diverse, from local doctor's offices, businesses, school counselors, and individuals. In an age when third party payment is often essential to accessing services, we are able to take most managed care and standard health insurances. You may call your insurance customer service line or our intake line to confirm that we are providers for your particular insurance.

We would be happy to talk with you about your particular needs and how we might best meet them. We look forward to serving you.
