Hi! My name Katelyn Strand. I earned my Master of Social Work from The Ohio State University and have over 3 years of experience providing therapy to clients recovering from trauma and abuse, healing from depression and anxiety, and wanting to increase their skills use. I earned my Bachelor's in Education and worked for a couple years in the special education setting of a middle school. I love drawing on my education background with clients and families to teach new skills and support families as they navigate the education system as well. I offer in person appointments in Westerville, OH and telehealth appointments from anywhere in Ohio. I currently do not have any in-person availability and I can offer bi-weekly telehealth appointments for morning or mid-day times. If you are interested in in-person or evening times, feel free to reach out by text or phone call at 614-285-4827, if you would like to be put on a wait-list for those specific appointments. I am honored you would consider me for your therapy!

Hello and welcome, I am happy you have made it to this point! Though there is a diminishing stigma with seeking mental health treatment, it is still a huge step to decide to seek the help you are needing. I believe that the most key aspect of a successful treatment is the therapeutic relationship. There must be a level of trust and comfort shared if goals are to be met. In order to help you decide if I am a good fit for you, I’ll tell you a bit about me. I have been counseling for the last four years, with experience in substance use treatment and mental health treatment. I have worked with adults, children, and teens. I particularly have worked with many issues involving: - Anxiety - Depression - Trauma - ADHD - Emotional regulation issues I graduated with a concentration in both trauma and Christian counseling. I am trained in TF-CBT. As for personally, I just love people and it is a great blessing to be able to serve in this capacity for a career.

She has worked at inpatient adult and adolescent psychiatric hospitals in Ohio for 8 years along with managing her private therapy practice and teaching at The Ohio State University. Then in 2012, she said good-bye to the cold weather and moved to Jupiter, FL where she began working at the West Palm Beach VA Medical Center for 10 years. Her career at the WPB VA Medical Center offered her the opportunity to work with Veterans in the following capacities over that 10 year period; as a Mental Health Therapist, Program Manager of Post Deployment Clinic and the Care Giver Support Program, Supervisor of Homeless Programs and Supervisor over programs serving Veterans with serious mental health conditions. In addition to working at the WPB VA Medical Center, she worked in private practice in Jupiter, FL.

She has published two books, one on relationships and another on managing depression. She has written a couples interactive co-journal and is also working on publishing other journal series for situation-specific healing journals for life events such as healing post affair, moving forward after the end of a relationship, healing after death of a partner; to name a few. She has published multiple articles on relationships, depression, improving well-being, thriving during and after a serious health issue and reducing acute stress response. She has a YouTube Channel, “Therapy with Karen Collins” where she posts peaceful places, guided meditations, provoking ideas to consider and a segment on managing acute stress response and improving overall well-being to teach how to prevent over-responding to stressors. She has provided therapy virtually for over 11 years (long before it was trending as a popular method) and she is a MDLIVE provider joining that company in the beginning of their virtual platform launch. The past few years have proven that virtual therapy is an effective method of providing therapy removing additional barriers such as drive time, inconvenience, lack of child care, etc. to accessing needed services.

Hello! So happy to see you. I am Kenya Liddell. Having had experienced many losses in my life, I often wonder what to do next or how to move forward. Sometimes life happens so quickly that it seems like there is not enough time to catch a breath. It's a scary feeling to have to figure out the hustle and bustle of life while still hurting inside. Fearful of being misunderstood, judged or like "it" may not work may be the negative thoughts that have developed during such a devastating loss. Think about getting back to doing the things that you once loved. Think about learning to live the best life that you imagined you could. Think about feeling better about yourself. Together you and I can work to get a better understanding of your loss and create a positive path to growth and healing. You are not alone. Your healing journey is a just call or click away. You can do it. I look forward to working with you.

Hi, I'm Richelle. I'm a licensed professional clinical counselor with over eight years of experience helping individuals improve their mental health and quality of life. I have worked in a variety of settings, including online therapy. Right now, life may feel hard. You’ve faced many challenges that seemed to have come out of nowhere, and you're constantly doing your best to navigate through them. You struggle to set healthy boundaries and often feel overwhelmed. Asking for help isn't always easy. You may say to yourself, “What will people think? I can figure it out on my own.” It’s tough because you usually go at it alone, carrying the load and bearing the burden. However, deep down inside, you know that something isn't quite right and that you could use some support. Does this sound familiar? As someone who has been there before, I understand how tough it can be to take that first step to reach out. While you may feel like you have to handle everything yourself, these are the times when reaching out for help can give you some direction and help you find your path forward. The truth is, it takes strength and courage to say, “I need help.” And when you do, you'll find that you have the inner strengths and abilities to make meaningful change in your life. Together, we can work to discover those strengths and create a path forward that's tailored to your unique needs and goals.

I have worked in the mental health field for over 20 years mostly in community mental health agencies and so have years of experience providing services for those wanting to include their spiritual beliefs as well as those who do not. Additionally, I have experience with people from a wide range of backgrounds as well as diagnoses. I can help you work on the struggles you are facing and offer you a place you may come to feel is safe to explore your thoughts and feelings and make the changes you want to make.

I am an LCSW (Licensed Clinical Social Worker) with experience in working with adults and children from in-patient as well as out-patient settings. I have worked with teenagers and young children for over 10 years. I specialize in working with children with trauma, anxiety, and depression. I have a heart for working with kids and teens with traumatic experiences. My passion began while I was still in high school and wanted to be a teacher. I worked in various daycare facilities as well as having my own in-home daycare and decided I wanted to help kids (and adults) in a more in-depth manner. That is when I began my journey into social work and found my true calling in life. I have experience working with children and adolescents who have been through, or are currently in, the child welfare system as well as working with older teens with substance abuse/misuse issues.

Hi, I'm Brandi and I'm excited to help individuals and couples improve communication and understanding in their relationships. Our potential to be well, cope with stress, be ourselves, and connect with others are continually linked and impacted by our relationships. Relationships are so important that they require consistent attention and effort for success. As a practical person and therapist, I offer strength-based brief therapy to give your relationships that attention to create change and increase that potential to be well. I've supported individuals, couples, and families from various walks of life and backgrounds for over 12 years from working with family crises as case management to professional counseling. Are you wanting a better relationship with yourself or to manage stress better? Are you tired of going in circles and ready to have more understanding in your relationships? Then let's get to work!

My treatment process begins with a comprehensive diagnostic assessment, typically lasting one to two hours. During this assessment, I carefully evaluate your presenting concerns and symptoms to provide accurate diagnoses and formulate personalized treatment recommendations. If I determine that I am the best fit for your needs, I will suggest starting with outpatient sessions on a weekly basis, gradually transitioning to biweekly sessions as progress is made.
