WHO WE ARE

Mark Dunay

Mark B. Dunay, the founder/director of Harbor Counseling Associates, is a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker and Level 1 Licensed Alcohol and Drug Counselor.

A lifelong resident of Greater Boston, most of it spent on the South Shore coast, Mark has worked in the mental health field since the mid-60s.  A graduate of the University of Massachusetts with a degree in Psychology, Mark also holds a Masters in Clinical Social Work from Simmons College, where he studied and trained in an intensive two-year program under a National Institute of Mental Health Traineeship which occurred under the auspices of the Harvard Medical School and Cambridge Hospital.  Since concluding his formal undergraduate and graduate degree programs in the mid-70s, he has continued to study, learn and grow both personally and professionally.

Harbor Counseling Associates had its beginnings in 1980 in a small office in Hingham Harbor.  Shortly thereafter, a second office was opened on the waterfront, abutting Scituate Harbor.

Late in 1982 Mark joined an existing and developing practice group in Plymouth, and the Harbor Counseling Associates name took a 15-year nap as the Plymouth practice grew and prospered.

In 1996 Harbor Counseling Associates was reborn as a small, specialized practice quite close to Plymouth Harbor where it, like its predecessors, has grown into a helpful, reliable and truly “safe harbor” for our clients and their families.

Trained in Child and Family Therapy, Mark began to develop a deep and ever-growing interest in understanding and treating addictive disorders since his initial formal training in this area in 1974.  That understanding and commitment to treating and helping individuals afflicted with a myriad of addictive problems has grown and continues to be central to Mark’s work and that of Harbor Counseling Associates.
