Our Story

There have been mental health providers at Newton Square on the west side of Worcester since 1989 when Zamir Nestelbaum, MD opened an office. Over the years we have had a continuous and consistent presence in Worcester and the surrounding communities. Recently we’ve rebranded as the Newton Square Counseling Collaborative to better reflect our multi-disciplined and collegial approach in a post-covid hybrid and telehealth environment.

NSCC is a collaborative of talented and like-minded mental health clinicians offering multiple helping modalities to a complex and diverse community of patients and clients using state of the art technologies that have become available and user friendly. We  offer in-person and telehealth services by our team of psychiatrists, nurse practitioners, psychologists and social work therapists working together to help our community reach personal goals, improved mental health and well-being, and a higher level of functioning. NSCC tailors treatment plans for each individual and avoid a one size fits all philosophy as people are too complex for simplistic approaches.

At Newton Square, we are inclusive and serve a diverse community reflective of our region and welcome people of color, people with LGBTQ+ identities, recent immigrants and trauma survivors from all over the world. For those who wish to be seen in person, we are located in a beautiful large Victorian right on the Newton Square rotary with excellent off-street parking on site. NSCC offers confidential telehealth services for those who wish to be seen remotely for any reason. We take most insurance plans.
