Jori Argue, LMHC
Clinical Consultant
North Shore, MA
 
I have been working in the counseling field with adolescents, children, families and individuals in a variety of settings since 2003. I graduated from the University of New Hampshire with a BS in Psychology and then completed my Masters in Counseling Psychology at the California Institute of Integral Studies. For the past several years, I have been working as a clinician and supervisor, doing in-home family therapy, mentoring and parent sessions, with youth and families involved with the Massachusetts Departments of Mental Health and Department of Children and Families. I strive to approach therapy in a creative and client-centered manner, meeting youth and families where they are most comfortable, whether that is in their home, an office, on a hiking trail, or playing catch in the back yard. Most importantly, I believe in developing a trusting relationship, focusing on client strengths, and working with youth and families as a partner.

Matthew G. Doyle, LICSW
Founding Director

 

Castle Hill Counseling & Consulting was founded in December of 2015. While drawing from my undergraduate education at Boston College, subsequent graduate program at Simmons College, and 20+ years of experience in the mental health field,  I started Castle Hill Counseling & Consulting with the vision to deliver the highest quality service to children and families.  These customized services are designed to come to family's homes, children's school environments, and to the larger systems supporting families through professional development, specialized trainings, and consultation.   

 

Through the use of creativity, action planning, and skill-building exercises, I assist my clients in actively identifying goals and working towards solving problems. I specialize in individual therapy with children, adolescents, and adults, and provide expertise in family therapy and parent coaching. I practice mind-body integration, and for families and interested adults, I offer creative alternatives to promote engagement and comfort, such as walking sessions, breathing exercises, playing music, or family sports.

 

In addition to our clinical work, Castle Hill also offer consultative services to schools, state agencies, and nonprofit organizations. We are frequently invited to facilitate professional development and community workshops throughout the New England region.
