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 6 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.

Written by C.I. on May 22, 2020 after counseling with Heath for 3 weeks on issues concerning family conflicts

Grateful for Heath using scripture to help me during our counseling. It is very important to me and helps to make this process more encouraging, a bit more comforting and sometimes even more challenging but in a good way.

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!

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.

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 is beyond helpful, attentive and has kind heart. He offers thoughts, advice and strategies to help you through whatever the issue may be. He responds to messages everyday and checks up on you to make sure your doing okay. 10/10 recommend him to anyone!

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.

Dr. Heath is awesome. When we talk, I know he is actually engaged in the conversation and hearing my concerns. He gives you the tools to grow instead of just telling you how to limp through a situation. He has helped me immensely. I am forever grateful for him.

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 by M.I. on Sep 01, 2019 after counseling 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 by J.E. on Jul 09, 2019 after counseling 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 by B.R. on Nov 14, 2018 after counseling 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.
