About Deb Horton Counseling

My approach at Deb Horton Counseling is openness, compassion and acceptance of all lifestyles, backgrounds and beliefs. I begin by making a person-to-person connection, noting your strengths and skills. I help people work through a variety of issues, including transitions, stress or anxiety, depression, grief and advanced or chronic illness. I see adults, age 18+. 


I'm a (cis/het) LGBTQIA+ supporter with advanced education and clinical experience working with people who are transgender/gender diverse. 

You do not have to be LGBTQIA+ to work with me. Additionally, I am kink-, poly-, consensual nonmonogamy- affirmative, and sex-positive.


I have a Bachelor's in Social Work from the University of New Hampshire and a Master's in Social Work from Fordham Graduate School of Social Services in New York City. I am licensed in NH (#1612), VT (#089.0134335) and MA (#000124172). My pronouns are she/her/hers.

Payment and Insurances


I accept private pay at a session rate of $140. I also reserve some reduced-fee spots. For any insurance I am not contracted with, you can call your insurance company to see if you have an out-of-network benefit. That means you pay me my rate (cash, check, credit card) and I then provide you with a ‘super bill’ that you submit to your insurance and they may reimburse you for a portion of it. 

I accept several insurances:

  • New Hampshire Healthy Families/Ambetter/Cenpatico (NH Medicaid Managed Care Organizations)
  • Medicare including some Medicare Advantage plans
  • Tufts
  • United/Optum/Harvard Pilgrim/Health Plans Inc.
