About Me

I am Norene Vello, I am a licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Ohio. I received my Masters in Pastoral Clinical Counseling from Ashland Theological Seminary in Ashland, Ohio and have been practicing 19 years.
Life is a journey and at certain points, we all need guidance and direction to navigate the bumps and roadblocks along the way. We need fellow travelers to come alongside, to be present, to listen, guide and direct without judgement, criticism, or condemnation. If you allow me, I would like to be that person.
I have collaborated with people ages 6-82 working to better understand themselves and make peace with their struggles using Cognitive and Achievement assessments, Mindfulness breathing exercises, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT).
I have participated in and co-facilitated small women's groups for 18 years using Biblical principles, Spiritual Mindfulness, meditation, prayer, journaling, art, nature, music, CBT, Positive Therapy and Psychotherapy. These groups have addressed issues of depression, anxiety, self-esteem, self-confidence, abuse, and self-destructive behavior patterns.
My focus in Psychotherapy includes the physical, emotional, intellectual, social, and spiritual aspects of self because when one part hurts all parts hurt. We are spiritual beings with a need to belong, loved, accepted, and have meaning and purpose to maintain and develop a sense of well-being which, starts in childhood and continues throughout life.
My goals in every session are safety, peace, well-being, health, contentment, healing and wholeness in God. I welcome the privilege of walking with you and alongside you if you choose to invite me.

Norene Vello is wonderful. I was very anxious with the idea of doing therapy and doing it online. Within minutes of my very first session with Norene Vello had put me at ease and this process became so natural. She is a great listener and provides great wisdom during our conversations. I’m so glad we were paired together.

There’s so much that I can say about this wonderful individual. I understand that it is her job, but ion my opinion, I say it’s her passion to help those that experiencing tough times in their life. Norene is very intentional, compassionate, and she listens with care. We worked on so many things as I knew ahead of time what needed attention and then there were things that were impromptu because life just happens. However, when we met I could count on her to listen carefully and offer just the right recipe to bring a calm to the storms of my life. I am grateful for such a diligent therapist who understands that life throws us many curveballs but there’s a remedy to get back on track.
