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 Mental Health in Toledo, Ohio

Located in the northwest of Ohio, Toledo is the fourth largest city in the state with approximately 287,208 residents as of the last census. The metropolitan area includes a population of more than 650,000. Also known as ‘Glass City’ because of the large number of glass manufacturers that once were a part of the foundation of its economy, Toledo has changed over the years. The loss of industry and jobs has required the city to reinvent itself and incorporate new and innovative ideas to keep companies within the area. Meanwhile, the residents of Toledo are at the mercy of this economic turmoil and this can have a negative impact on the emotional and physical well-being of people.

As one of the largest population centers in the state of Ohio, Toledo will play an important role in turning around some of the more troubling trends regarding mental illness in the state. Ohio was highlighted as one of 14 states that are struggling to handle the number of mental health cases their residents present. It is estimated that 460,000 Ohioans are dealing with some form of mental illness which include bipolar disorder, bulimia, anorexia, and depression.

A Rise in Substance Abuse

Unsurprisingly, the state is also dealing with a heroin and prescription drug abuse problem- as mental health issues and substance abuse can sometimes go hand-in-hand as a person tries to self-medicate. In Toledo and the rest of the state, this seems to be a growing issue which needs to be addressed.

If you feel a need for assistance with stress, feelings of depression, or another condition that is not going away on its own, we can help you find a Toledo therapist or mental health professional. Having the resources you need to deal with times of crisis is an important step toward wellness. We can connect you with professionals that understand your unique issues and that can work around your schedule, so you can get the treatment you need.

Deciding you are ready to reach out for help is not always an easy step, but we can simplify the process of seeking out the right therapist for you in the Toledo area. With your own preferences in mind, you can use our powerful platform to locate the right mental health professional for you.

What Kind of Support Do You Need?

The search for a mental health professional or therapist should begin with a consideration of what your preferences and needs are. By asking yourself a few basic questions you can get a better idea of what type of person and service are most likely to provide the help you need. If you can be clear about your intentions for the process, you’ll have a better chance of connecting with the right person for you. A few questions you might ask yourself are:

  • What is my objective and why am I engaging in therapy?
  • What behaviors are getting in the way of me living the life that I want?
  • Am I more comfortable with speaking to a man or a woman? Or does the gender of the person not matter?
  • Am I able to fit in consistent times to meet with a therapist?
  • How long am I willing to commit to meeting with a mental health professional?
  • Do I require the assistance of a professional with a specialization in my area of concern?

Taking the time to answer these and other questions will give you a better sense of direction when sifting through the available services on offer. Your ultimate goal when choosing a therapist or mental health professional is to find someone who understands you and has the tools to help guide you through the treatment process in a way that resonates with you.

Does Your Health Insurance Cover Mental Health Services?

If you have health insurance, it is a good idea to find out what if any mental health services they might cover under your plan. It is possible they have their own network of professionals and this might be a guiding factor for you when choosing the right therapist.
