New counselors start at Harbor

New counselors Matt Dillon and Amanda Lehman are now serving clients at Harbor Counseling.

Harbor Counseling has added to more counselors to its staff.

Harbor Counseling provides drug and alcohol assessments/evaluations, counseling for substance abuse and mental health issues using both individual therapy and group treatment, family counseling, marriage and couples counseling, prison and probation required services, adolescent and school services, and employee assistance and workplace programs. Services are available at two locations: 7095 State Rte 287, Wellsboro and 206 Main St., Suite 5, Blossburg

Amanda Lehman has a bachelor’s degree in human services with a concentration in psychology from SUNY Empire State College in Saratoga Springs, N.Y. She has been providing mental health services for more than a decade and drug and alcohol counseling for more than two years.

“I love what I do and am very passionate about recovery,” said Lehman.

She will run the family program, which focuses on family reintegration. As addiction affects the entire family, reconnecting family members is often key in a person’s recovery. The program works on reconnecting the person in treatment with family members, improving communication and creating an effective support system without enabling.

Counselor Matthew Dillon also holds a bachelor’s degree from Mansfield University in the human services field with a concentration in psychology. He will serve as a primary addiction counselor at the Tioga County Prison and in the Wellsboro office.

“I’m excited because I’ll be getting to people earlier in the process, planting seeds and have them keep coming back,” said Dillon. “I just like helping people. As long as I can make a difference, that’s why I’m here.”
