ABOUT HARBOR COUNSELING
Nicole O'Neill, LCSW, PMH-C, Founder and Owner of Harbor Counseling, LCSW
My name is Nicole O'Neill and I own and operate Harbor Counseling, LCSW, a private practice in the heart of Northport, NY. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Certified Perinatal Mental Health Professional. I have been in the social work field for over 14 years. In addition to providing therapy for adolescents, couples, families and adults, some of my eclectic experience entails working in a school-based mental health clinic, running a program for new moms, and overseeing mentoring programs. I'm passionate about helping people through challenging life transitions which is why I feel I connect so well with adolescents, young adults and parents. I am grateful every day for my clients who share their stories with me and make the effort just by stepping into my office to make positive changes in their lives.
Choosing an effective Therapist is like choosing a life partner - chemistry and trust are an essential combination in a successful relationship. Got questions? I’ve got answers! I go above and beyond to act as a safety net for my clients, and strive to make their experience as pleasant as possible. Take a look at some answers to the most frequently asked therapy-related questions and requests below.
HOW LONG DOES EACH THERAPY SESSION TAKE?
I offer sessions of varying times but the two most common session lengths are 45 minutes and 60 minutes. Factors such as fees, insurance benefits and client preference help determine the session length.
WHAT THERAPEUTIC TECHNIQUES DO YOU USE?
While I tailor the techniques I use based on current best-practices and the specific needs of the client, my framework is heavily based in Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy. I am also trained in EMDR and working toward my certification in that modality.
WHAT ARE YOUR RATES?
Initial Appointment/60 minute session: $125
45 minute session: $100
DO YOU ACCEPT INSURANCE?
I am in network with Cigna. I can provide a superbill for possible reimbursement if you have out of network benefits with other providers. Please call you insurance company to inquire about out of network mental health benefits.

Improve Relationship Dynamics
Do you want more peace and less conflict in your home? In my therapy sessions, we’ll work to identify and overcome obstacles in your most significant relationships. I work with families and couples to enhance communication and challenge current patterns of behavior that get in the way of connection.
A Happier, Healthier You
I am a firm believer that everyone can benefit from individual therapy. Feelings of stress, anxiety, depression, can all seem overwhelming when we try to take them on ourselves. Let me help you sort through your feelings and work with you to develop the coping skills to make them manageable.
Group therapy has always been a favorite of mine. It is wonderful to witness the power of a shared experience and the validation and support that comes out of it. I am currently developing new groups so if there is a specific group you would like to see, please let me know.
