Any psychotherapists in FSP? And other random questions...
« on: June 07, 2013, 05:21:43 pm »

Hi,

I'm considering a move to NH from CA in 2014 and I was wondering if there any psychotherapists participating in the FSP who I might be able to get in touch with. I will be graduating from a mental health counseling program at the end of the year and I'm looking for information about post graduate supervision to get my mental health counselor license in NH. I will be in the area sometime in late August as well and would be interested in checking out any events that are going on where I could get a sense of the FSP community, or potentially meet up with you folks somehow.

Also, a few other random questions about life in NH...

Regarding the gun culture... Is there a lot of tactical firearms training in the state? Do trainers come through with classes very often? Are there IDPA matches or other events like that?

Also, is anyone connected to the bluegrass music scene in NH? Is there much bluegrass there? I'm a musician and would access to other people to play with. Thanks for any thoughts anyone has about any of this!

We have Sig Academy, at SigArms.

Plenty of independent or NRA-affiliated instructors, as well.

And, of course, Massad Ayoob's Lethal Force Institute is headquartered in Concord.

I'll I can speak to is the bluegrass. It seems popular in both western NH and in VT. I don't know about the rest of the state but my guess would be yes. You shouldn't have an issue with that.

Thanks for your responses. That's good to hear. I didn't realize that Ayoob was based in Concord. Awesome!

While I'm not a specific fan of bluegrass, country music in general has long been popular in NH.  Back in the early 70s in my teens in Laconia (when I didn't like country music until I was turned on to John Hartford by a girlfriend), the local stations did about an equal mix of rock and country.  Recent years, when I've up in the state for Porcfest, country stations seem to predominate.  Unlike here in north Jersey, where's only one country station downshore that barely reaches the NYC metro area, and that's only the last couple years -- before that, there was fifteen years with no country music over the air near NYC -- just on satellite radio and cable.
