I, Dorothy Derapelian, M.Ed., LCMHC, am an experienced mental health counselor, educator, and the creator of Core Attachment Therapy©. I have been in private practice for over 30 years in Meredith, NH. I specialize in play therapy and teach several classes for Granite State College. I conduct home studies for Child and Family Services for families interested in domestic and international adoptions. I am a member of the New Hampshire Attorney General's Mental Health Providers for those impacted by homicide crimes. In addition, I am a Certified Advanced Trainer for the Nurtured Heart Approach® and am listed in Who's Who in 1987, 1989 and 2004. I am honored to have received the International Peace Prize from the United Cultural Center in 2005. And on a personal note, I adopted my daughter Nara in 1995, at age 6 from Russia.


Besides providing therapy for children with attachment related issues, I provide play therapy, in particular toddlers. I also provide counseling for older children, adolescents and adults, for issues relating to trauma, anxiety, depression and transitional issues such as loss. I do take most insurances.


I also offer consultation services to those of you who are utilizing Core Attachment Therapy© and The Nurtured Heart Approach®. This can occur via phone or Skype and can be scheduled for 30 to 60 minute increments. Please pay below.

* After payment is received, I will contact you to set up a consultation time that works best for both of us*
