About me

Hello, I'm Dawn Adler, a dedicated therapist with dual Master's degrees in Social Work (MSW) and Public Policy and Management (MPPM) from The Ohio State University. I am the proud founder of Ohio Counseling & Consultation Services, a practice based in Columbus, Ohio. Additionally, I am licensed as an LISW in both Ohio and Florida.

My practice is grounded in the belief that everyone, irrespective of their background, deserves compassionate mental health support.

As a seasoned therapist, I specialize in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, guiding individuals through life's challenges with a strength-based approach. My mission is to provide a safe and affirming space for clients to explore their unique paths towards healing and personal growth.

Rebuilding lives and demonstrating the transformative power of therapy is my passion. If you're navigating a challenging time, I offer understanding and practical strategies to help you move forward. Let's embark on a journey of self-discovery and empowerment together.

Dawn has been so supportive and understanding. She was able to put my feelings into words and I felt very validated. She has watched me grow over the last year and I am forever grateful for her knowledge and experience.

Dawn is an excellent counselor —inquisitive, kind, and empathetic.

Super nice, and encouraging. Gives great advice and always just a message away if I'm having a really bad day or week! Progress is slow but seems so easy to just talk to her for the whole hour which is big because I'm never comfortable talking to people thanks to social anxiety. Definitely recommend!
