New Pathways Counseling Services, LLC

New Pathways founders Thomas J Parella, MA, LLPC and Jennifer R Werries, MA, LPC, NCC are counselors who strive to deliver caring, effective treatment in a warm and welcoming environment.. Working with a therapist can be a great way to gain new perspectives, explore new options and solutions that may have eluded us, and find ways of getting "unstuck" from situations in which we may have felt helpless. At New Pathways, we view counseling as a collaboration between therapist and client, who work together to understand issues, clarify thoughts and feelings, establish goals, and find ways to achieve a better quality of life.

We work with a wide range of emotional and behavioral issues providing services that span from therapy for depression and grief counseling to parenting support, couples counseling and beyond. We offer a highly personalized approach tailored to each individual client and situation in a comfortable and supportive atmosphere.

At New Pathways, we believe that counseling is a collaborative journey toward increased understanding of oneself and a healthier self-acceptance. We believe you have within you the answers, together we will work to find them. We look forward to working with you as an individual, couple, family or group.
