Our History

Founded in 1985, South Shore Counseling currently has three locations and a staff of outstanding therapists, each with unique specialties.

The main center located on Wantagh Avenue in Wantagh has many clinical offices and group rooms. Our offices are housed in an un-clinic like restored farm house, ensuring comfort and confidentiality. Our clinical staff is comprised of Clinical Social Workers, Clinical Psychologists, School Psychologists and Mental Health Counselors. All of our staff members have exceptional experience in their individual areas of expertise. 

Over the 28 years since its inception, South Shore Counseling and Psychological Services has developed strong relationships with surrounding schools, pediatric offices, neurologists, psychiatrists, attorneys and hospitals. 

South Shore maintains additional offices in Great Neck and in Amityville. 

William H. James, Ph.D., the Executive Director at South Shore Counseling and Psychological Services, has selected all clinical staff according to stringent standards. All referrals received by the administrative staff are reviewed by Dr. James. 

South Shore Counseling's mission has always been focused on developing "the sense of emotional well-being" within our clientele. Most people report the sense of well-being and a return to functionality as paramount in their thoughts when they are dealing with life's many challenges. 

We handle No-Fault and Workman's Compensation cases and are familiar with the need for rapid evaluation. 

Confidentiality and responsibility are our utmost concern.
