Creating a space for self acceptance and validation is a big first step of what I intend to facilitate as a therapist. If you feel something, then it is valid. With these principles as the back drop, we are able to begin the difficult, but worthwhile work of therapy: making the subconscious parts of ourselves more conscious. From a treatment modality perspective, I utilize CBT, DBT, Motivational Interviewing, and Solution Focused Brief Therapy.... Read More

Guide to Finding Mental Health Professionals in Cincinnati, Ohio

The third-largest city in Ohio, Cincinnati has a population of 301,301 and plays an important role in the economy of the state. The wider Cincinnati-Middletown-Wilmington area comprises a population of over two million combined. With low unemployment and a fast-growing economy, this Midwestern city is leading the way for a renewed prosperity following the harsh after-effects of de-industrialization in the region. Despite this positive trend for the Cincinnati area, this does not mean that the residents are immune from the mental health problems that are challenging other less-prosperous cities in the region. It is still touched by the complications of prescription and opioid drug abuse that other parts of the nation have been suffering.  This can sometimes be caused by self-medicating due to other mental health afflictions that have not been adequately treated.

The Prescription Drug Epidemic

The state of Ohio has been pinpointed as one of the states that have greatly been affected by the opioid epidemic and the mental health issues that can come along with it. Approximately 460,000 Ohioans are thought to suffer from some form of mental illness. In the latest rankings of states, Ohio was given an overall position of 20 when it came to the positive mental health of adults and youth as well as residents’ access to therapists and mental health care professionals. There is room for improvement for the quality of care within the state and in the city of Cincinnati. An effective strategy for dealing with the prescription drug problems of Cincinnati would be smart to include plans that address providing more mental health support systems so that people can get the treatment they need rather than looking to other destructive behaviors.

First Steps on the Road to Wellness

The process of discovering that you may need additional assistance is not always an easy one. It can take some time before you’re ready to accept the help of a professional.

However, before you begin your search we have a few questions that may help you focus in on what you are looking for. It is a good idea to think about what it is you need and what your communication style is so that you can get the most out of your experience. For example, what do you want to get out of your time in therapy? Do you prefer speaking to a man or a woman, or does it even matter to you? Are you ready to make the time commitment to meet with a professional on a regular and ongoing basis? Does the problem that you are suffering from require the expertise of a specialist (such as certain eating disorders, etc.)? If you can be honest with yourself and take stock of what your answers are to these questions you are more likely to find the therapist or mental health professional that will work for you. After all, working with a therapist that understands you is an important part of the therapeutic process.

Therapy and Your Health Insurance

One of the things you will want to keep in mind when embarking on your search for the right mental health professional is that your health insurance may cover the service in part or completely. Your health insurance company may have their own list of mental health professionals that are covered within their own network. For this reason, it is a good idea to get in touch with your provider and find out the details of how coverage for mental health services would work in your circumstance.
