Hi my name is Christi Tilley and I am an Independent Licensed Social Worker in the state of Ohio with over 10 years experience working as a psychotherapist. I have worked with clients, couples and families dealing with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, OCD,ADHD, development disabilities and personality disorders. I have also help many people who have been a victim of physical, emotional or sexual abuse.
My therapy style is very relaxed and easy to have a conversation with, I have been told that I have great communication skills and I am very supportive. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity and compassion. I don't agree with judging other or placing labels, we have all been through many different situations and all I want to do is empower my clients to be the best version of themselves for their own piece of mind.
It takes courage to seek a happier life and to take the first steps to change. When you are ready I am here to empower and support you on your journey.

Talking to Christi feel like talking to someone I've known for years she is down to earth and amazing...but she tells me the truth no matter how hard it may be for me to hear she's completely honest. I look forward to talking with her everyweek

Christi is wonderful. She doesn't let my ADHD direct the appointments, she keeps me focused and on track so I can make the progress I need. She gives me "homework" so I can keep moving forward.

I am a middle school administrator and the fact that Christi works in a school district just made this experience so easy. More importantly, Christi is a wonderful therapist. Her insight and ability to see what I could not is her strength. She showed me how to see from a different perspective and help clean up the incredible stressful trauma I have been going through.
