Ronald Koval

(MA, LPC, LPCC)

About Me

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in Arizona and a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor (LPCC) in Ohio. I have 20 years of experience including 10 years as both a middle school counselor and a mental health counselor at the same time. I received my Masters in School and Community Counseling from The Ohio State University. I have also worked with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting, school related problems, career challenges, trauma, conflict resolution, stress, and ADHD.

I have also worked as a Military and Family Life Counselor where I counseled individuals, families, parenting, and relationships. I also have experience in family conflicts, anger management, career counseling, Bipolar Disorder, snd Autism Spectrum issues.

My counseling style is very client-oriented and interactive. I enjoy coming alongside my clients to form a positive working relationship. My approach combines Client-Centered Therapy, Brief Solution Focused Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT), Psychodynamic Therapy, as well as Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). I will combine these elements to work alongside you to develop treatment plans that meet your unique and specific needs and goals.

It takes courage to take the first step and reach out for help in making life changes. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you.

From someone that constantly feels like I’m in need of reassurance this time around with his expertise I feel as if I’m confident enough to not need that as much as before. I highly recommend him, so far it seems whatever topic or questions I have are as important to him that they are for me.
