I specialize in working with PTSD, Depression, Anxiety, Adjustment Disorder,  Oppositional Deviant Disorder, school concerns, aggressive behavioral issues, and emotional regulation. By providing psychoeducation, skills and psychotherapy to patients struggling with mental illness, emotional disturbance and behavior issues I am able to help empower them to become the best version of themselves. I am experienced in providing individual, group, family therapy, crisis intervention, psychoeducation and collaborative care in the home, community, and the education environment. I utilize TF-CBT, motivational interviewing, person-centered, solution-focused, and mindfulness treatment modalities to build a safe and therapeutic relationship, incorporating parents along the way to produce the best possible outcomes to maintain thought, emotional and behavioral changes. Time has no measure, and I value the opportunity and responsibility of making an impact in the lives of others.

I look forward to working with you! Specializations Addiction and/or Substance Use Concerns, Anger Management, Anxiety, Couples Counseling, Depression, Family Therapy, Grief, Health Psychology, Parenting Issues, Relationship Issues, Sleep Health, Women's Health. In our sessions, you can see into my home, and it is as if you are right there with me. No filters, no staring at a wall behind me. You will be inside of my home office as if it were in person. At our sessions I take notes that I give to you at the end of our sessions, so you have have something tangible to take with you, as well as links to resources such as podcasts, books, take home exercises (never mandatory though!) to help you progress in between sessions to make our time together more valuable. I used to be in direct service many years ago and then moved into training EAP providers and offering trainings for Mental Health providers to maintain their licenses, but during the, "Great Hiatus," I saw that people needed help. So I came back to be in the trenches. You are in good hands! I am also a student of positive psychology, but I have the ability to empathize deeply and really be right there with you. Almost all of my clients have experienced breakthroughs and by the end of our time together are enjoying their lives again and feeling competent to problem solve and develop coping tools, and resiliency.

Graduating in 2012, I have met with many hundreds of individuals, couples and families using a myriad of different methodologies. What I have learned is that the best way to help a client is to let go of anything you ever learned and connect with the person individual in front of you, not as a client but as a person. In addition, I take a highly biased and slanted bent towards your strengths and qualities with an unhidden agenda of manifesting your individual core beauty. In other words, this is a highly individual journey and the key to enjoying it is through highly colored lenses of your inexhaustible array of qualities. All methodology and techniques fall to the wayside.

Time does not heal all wounds; it just gives them space to sink into the subconscious, where they continue to impact your emotions and behavior. “What heals is going inward, loving yourself, accepting yourself, listening to your needs, addressing your attachments and emotional history and following your intuition" (Yung Pueblo). I aim to create an alliance with my clients to help them find their voice, tell their story, re-engage their strengths and cultivate new ways to stay mindful and grounded—no matter what life throws at them.

You are a woman who has been devastated by grief over pregnancy loss, infertility, or postpartum depression and anxiety.

Your world has stopped while everyone else seems to be living their best life. You find yourself having the same fights with your partner over and over again. Society glamorizes pregnancy and motherhood which can make you feel even more alone and misunderstood. If you see one more pregnancy announcement or social media post about the happiness of motherhood, you might lose it! Your baby is important to you no matter how much time you have spent with them.

As a professional mental health counselor specializing in treating anxiety and depression, I provide a comprehensive approach to help prospective clients manage their mental health challenges. My process typically begins with an initial consultation or assessment session, where I create a safe and supportive environment for clients to share their concerns and goals. I employ evidence-based treatments, particularly drawing from Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), which is a form of cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT). In my sessions, I guide clients through a process of accepting their thoughts and feelings rather than fighting against them. I help them identify their values and commit to actions that align with those values, even in the presence of difficult emotions or thoughts. During sessions, I may utilize various techniques such as mindfulness exercises, experiential exercises, and cognitive restructuring to help clients develop psychological flexibility. This involves teaching them skills to defuse from unhelpful thoughts, increase awareness of the present moment, and take committed action towards meaningful life goals. Additionally, I collaborate with clients to develop personalized treatment plans tailored to their specific needs and circumstances. I may incorporate psychoeducation about anxiety and depression, as well as teach coping strategies and relaxation techniques to empower clients in managing their symptoms outside of therapy sessions. My approach is characterized by empathy, non-judgment, and respect for the individuality of each client. I strive to create a therapeutic alliance based on trust and collaboration, where clients feel understood and supported in their journey towards improved mental well-being.

I have been practicing as a clinical social worker for over thirty years and I have never gotten bored or tired or even considered doing anything else. I am originally from New York State and got my bachelor's degree in English literature at NYU. I took some time off to travel and then settled in Houston, Texas and got my master's degree from the University of Houston. I had extensive psychoanalysis to heal my own wounds prior to becoming a therapist and, after being licensed, I became a therapist, then clinical director, of a psychiatric day treatment center. After about seven years I opened my own private practice office where I saw clients in the evening and, during the daytime, I saw clients who were referred to me for treatment in several independent living and nursing facilities, and at a residential treatment center for adults with schizophrenia and other major mental illness. Since coming to Ohio five years ago I have been in private practice and signed up with Grow Therapy in August of 2023.

Hello and welcome to MindWell Counseling, LLC! My name is Katie Crow (she/her), LISW-S, LCSW and I am the owner of MindWell Counseling, LLC. I am a licensed clinical mental health therapist and hold my Masters degree in Social Work from The University of Akron. I originally began my career in the corporate HR world and after 10 years decided I wasn’t following my true passion. My passion is working with adults who are on a journey of self-growth. I started MindWell Counseling, LLC in 2022 because life has been more difficult over the past few years, and wanted to provide a safe, non-judgmental space to express your thoughts, feelings and to be yourself. I believe each person can heal and my role is to provide you with support, feedback, education, and therapeutic interventions so you can. I utilize a collaborative and strengths-based approach to counseling and provide a warm, empathetic and compassionate environment (and maybe a little humor). Reaching out for counseling is courageous and the first step in the healing process. Whether this is your first time or your 100th time in therapy, my objective is for you to achieve your goals. I look forward to being a part of your path to healing!
