About me

Hey there! My name is Heath

I appreciate your courage to seek out help. I have enjoyed working in the mental health field for 9 years now and I'm licensed in the State of Ohio. I have experience with children, adolescents, and adults from all backgrounds. I have experience working with an array of issues including depression, anxiety, anger control, and co-occurring disorders (mental health and substance use). I also have some experience working with trauma and grief and loss.

My approach is very person centered, cognitive behavioral, and solution focused. I have a genuine personality, a nonjudgmental attitude, and a friendly demeanor. I believe the most important factor is the client-counselor relationship. It is within this relationship that a person can begin to heal, find hope, and be encouraged through the change process.

If you are ready to receive help I am happy to be supportive and empower you through the process.

Heath is absolutely one of the kindest souls to ever live, I'm convinced of it. He is patient, and really takes the time to listen to you vent your concerns and offers usually a variety of ways to improve yourself.
10/10 recommend him to anyone.

Dr. Heath has solutions and offers up help for whatever issue I seem to be having. It doesn't have to be ground crumbling problems for me to feel like I can reach out.

I have nothing but positive things to say about Heath. My husband and I look forward to our sessions with him weekly. He listens thoroughly to both of us, shows respect but chimes in and gives appropriate responses, advice, things to think about and options when trying to figure things out within our marriage. He is never pushy and is sincere always. He takes the time for both my husband and I whether it’s a session together or separate. Would love for him to ask more questions and dig deeper into issues

All in all he’s great!

Mr. Ridenbaugh is a very thoughtful, thorough, and patient therapist. I greatly value his input and advice. He goes out of his way to make you feel valued and important. Highly recommended!

Written on May 10, 2020 after therapy with Heath for 5 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, self esteem, anger management, coaching, and compassion fatigue

Heath is probably the most active and respectful listener I've ever spent time with. He is thoughtful, insightful, deliberate, and genuine with how he values and communicates with me. I am very thankful for Heath and will object strongly to working with anyone else other than him.

Written on May 09, 2020 after therapy with Heath for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, and self esteem

I was seeing a counselor in person for a few months and I just felt like it wasn’t working for me. I wasn’t getting anywhere with it. After only two sessions with Heath, I feel that we have made a lot more progress than I did the whole course of my previous counselor. He pin points my exact needs.

Heath was very calm and composed during our meetings which helped me enter a similar state which was nice. He went over time on a few of our sessions which made me feel like he actually cared, and he gave me that impression anyways. He was also proactive about checking in with me to make sure I made full use of this service.

Heath has helped me significantly in dealing with my anxiety; he’s helped me approach it from different angles and has given me different tools to help me work through situations rather than just reacting or shutting down.

Written on Sep 01, 2019 after therapy with Heath for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, and addictions

Heath and I just started our sessions but so far he is great. He knows how to listen well and ask pointed questions to what is harming me mentally. He applies these things back to a biblical example which helps me with perspective. He’s been great so far I look forward to continued sessions.

Written on Jul 09, 2019 after therapy with Heath for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, self esteem, coping with life changes, and compassion fatigue

Heath is a great and supportive listener, very open-minded and good at sorting through my emotional, multi-directional rambling and calling attention to common threads. Our sessions leave me with plenty of food for thought. He responds to messages in a very timely manner and has been great about checking in with me when I go too long without being in touch. He also has a worksheet for just about everything, some of which I've found very useful. I feel very lucky to have been matched with such a great therapist so easily through this service.

Heath has been a huge help for me and I would recommend him to anyone seeking help. We've been focusing on building confidence after past relationship troubles and I've already noticed steady progress. He's kind, intelligent, and always respectful. I truly feel like I can share anything with him and know that he'll be as honest and objective as possible. His approach to counseling is direct and solution-based which has led to quick results. I look forward to continuing to work with him.

Thank you! I appreciate your time and compassion.

Written on Nov 14, 2018 after therapy with Heath for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, and anger management

Heath has been fantastic. I have been in counseling before with several different providers Heath has been my favorite. He was responsive, attentive, and properly challenging. He shared worksheets that were both relevant to my situation and insightful. While neither Heath’s verbal advise or the worksheeets directly solved my problems, both encouraged personal reflection. It was in that personal reflection where practical solutions were found.

Thank you, Heath.

Work with me!
