Nassau Guidance and Counseling is a privately owned psychotherapy practice with 36 convenient locations throughout Long Island, New York, serving Nassau and Suffolk counties.
All of our offices are safe, confidential, and non-judgmental environments where individuals, couples, and families - adults, teens, and children - learn to lead happier, healthier and more peaceful lives.
Since 1960, our highly skilled Licensed Clinical Social Workers (LCSWs), Licensed Clinical Psychologists (PhDs), Licensed Marriage and Family Therapists (LMFTs), and Licensed Mental Health Counselors (LMHCs) – all of whom have at least 10 years of post-license experience - have helped thousands of Long Island residents manage better through life's challenges.
In addition to their world-class training and many years of experience, our therapists share a deep appreciation and respect for our clients' desires to recover and grow, and are committed to, and passionate about, helping them reach their highest potential: emotionally, mentally, interpersonally, occupationally, spiritually, and socially.

"I was dealing with a lot of emotional turmoil ..."
When I called Nassau Guidance, I was dealing with a lot of emotional turmoil. During this period of time, I started to notice certain patterns and behaviors within myself that I knew I wanted to change, but didn't know how. I can't say enough about how this experience has changed my life. Growing up in an alcoholic family, I had no idea how much my childhood had shaped my life as an adult. Kathleen Dwyer-Blair, my counselor, has given me my life back. I'm able to look at situations in a different way. When situations occur, I now know where certain feelings are coming from and why I am feeling a certain way.
Before I started with Nassau Guidance, my emotions controlled me. I now control my emotions and the way I handle stressful situations. I now make better choices when it comes to the people I have in my life. I have learned how to take care of myself with the concept of "self-caring" without feeling like I am being "selfish." This concept has changed not only me, but my relationships with my family and friends. Before counseling I would back away from conflict. One year later, I am able to face conflict head-on and talk about issues that may arise. Hence, I actually have less conflict in my life. I would highly recommend to anyone to make the call to Nassau Guidance. The staff is extremely friendly. They really do want to help. They will connect you to a counselor that is the perfect match for you. It was the best thing I could have done for myself, my family and my children. R. Ward, Seaford, NY
