Description: Students in their specialization year would be most appropriate for our Training Program.

Counseling Associates of New London, PLLC (CANL) was established in 2004 by Betsy Harrison, MA, LCMHC and Susan Borchert, PhD, LP, to serve the mental health needs of the greater Kearsarge-Lake Sunapee area. Responding to client and community demand, CANL expanded from its original office in New London to locations in Newport, Claremont, Hanover, and Plymouth.

Today, we have over 50 employees with a range of backgrounds, skills, and expertise to serve our clients and to keep the offices running efficiently and effectively. At CANL, we provide a variety of mental health services to a broad population from young children to older adults. Services include individual counseling, group counseling, family therapy, school-based mental health counseling, integrated health care, and medication evaluations and management. We also offer substance abuse services, including therapy as well as relapse prevention, substance abuse evaluations, and DUI aftercare counseling. It is our mission to offer comprehensive, specialized services, and our staff consists of multiple professionals who have a wide array of expertise.

At CANL we have adopted a service-learning model for our students’ training. During practicum and/or internship, students will have an opportunity to integrate theory and practice and to expand the depth and breadth of learning in their particular areas of study and interest. They will be able to translate abstract concepts and diagnoses into human experience in an applied setting, while guided by a licensed supervisor who helps to impart additional skills. Students will develop learning goals at the beginning of their training and reflect actively on what they are learning throughout the learning experience. Through observation, interaction, and consultation with other licensed clinicians, students are provided with excellent opportunities to learn from experienced clinicians.
