I am a highly experienced therapist licensed in Ohio with over 40 years of experience providing individual, couple, and family counseling across a wide spectrum of persons and life-style choices. Though having successfully treated a large variety of personal and relational problems over the years, my most common successes have been in helping persons solve their anxiety, depression, traumatic memories, grief and loss, of aging, or marital and other relationship problems. As I work to help free up the stuck places in people's lives, I draw from their own strengths especially but also my own strengths and experiences achieved over the course of my own 74 years, 53 years of marriage, and 43 years of post-Masters clinical training. I draw from my 1977 Master of Social Work (MSW) degree from The Ohio State University, as well as a 2002 Master of Divinity (MDiv) degree from United Theological Seminary. My specialty training over the years has been in Structural/Strategic Family Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, and Gerontology. My work is informed by a strong spiritual faith from a Christ-centered perspective. I believe in a collaborative approach to therapy that begins with the present but utilizes past and present strengths to build toward your own preferred future. If you are ready to take the first steps toward a more satisfying life, I am here to support and empower you. I look forward to working with you!

Life is hard. Full stop. Sometimes we need help - an extended ear or friendly face to continue to deal with our daily stressors or big life changes. Taking the first step to seeking help takes courage. Let’s take a moment to celebrate this first achievement toward a happier, healthier you! We are often hardest on ourselves, and I believe that focusing inward and allowing ourselves grace and kindness can go a long way. I also believe we all need space to process what we are thinking and feeling, though we often find reasons to neglect this need. We are too busy, other things become a priority, or perhaps we believe we don’t deserve the time and energy for ourselves. My toolbox is equipped with a range of therapeutic approaches, depending on each person’s needs and interests. I primarily utilize techniques that help develop skills to cope with life’s challenges. However, in working together I hope to help you with setting goals, finding and maintaining motivation, setting healthy boundaries, and finding sustainable balance. I specialize in expressive arts therapy (visual art, music, drama, movement, writing), though participating in expressive arts is not required and will not be pushed. Most of my experience is in crisis response and providing care to individuals needing intense levels of care in full-day programs. I believe that therapy goes beyond theory and textbooks. I have found that my influences have come from both inside and outside of the field of mental health. As a registered expressive arts therapist (REAT) and board certified registered art therapist (ATR-BC), I am inspired by Natalie Rogers, Shaun McNiff, and Cathy Malchiodi. As a mental health practitioner, I am heavily influenced by Carl Rogers, Irvin Yalom, and Jean Piaget. As a human being, I look to Fred Rogers, Tim Gunn, and Bob Ross for modeling of being kind to others, being kind to ourselves, and finding ways to reframe situations and overcome challenges. I will work with you to meet your needs and help you reach your goals, however, if at anytime you or I feel that it’s not a good fit, I am happy to help you connect with someone else. I am available for 30-45 minute live sessions Monday through Saturday. I look forward to meeting and working with you!

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.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

Some other commonly asked questions on therapy with a licensed counselor and BetterHelp serving the Brook Park area can be found below:

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Brook Park therapist?

The average price of an in-person therapy session in the US is $100 to $200 per hour. These prices may be higher in Brook Park due to a higher cost of living. The price also depends on the type of provider you are looking for. See the following average prices for various mental health providers without insurance:

  • Counseling with a psychiatrist: $150-$500
  • Counseling with therapists: $100-300
  • Therapy with a psychologist: $100

While many psychologists in Brook Park may not take health insurance, some in the state of Ohio may work on a sliding scale, meaning they'll factor in your income and charge what you can afford per session. With BetterHelp or clinicians throughout the state of Ohio you can expect significantly more affordable options, with sessions ranging from $65 to $100 per week (billed every four weeks).

How is a licensed therapist on this online therapy platform verified?

All of these psychology clinicians have a Masters Degree or a Doctorate Degree in their field of psychology sciences, and follow the APA Code of Ethics. They have been qualified and certified by their state's professional board after successfully completing the necessary education, exams, training and practice with a patient, and extensive experience in a healthcare clinic or treatment centers, in order to become a mental health provider. While their lived experience, expertise, careers, and background vary, they all possess at least 3 years and 1,000 hours of hands-on experience with adult and sometimes teen patients, and have the necessary therapist credentials to provide a safe space for long lasting emotional healing in therapy. 

Please note BetterHelp does not offer or provide care from psychiatrists to prescribe a drug as treatment, or perform psychological assessments.

You can also try a Brook Park therapy provider through BetterHelp's sister platform, ReGain, which is dedicated to couples and spouses worldwide. 

How do I know if online counseling is right for my family?

One of the potentially rewarding aspects of working with a therapist is the validation and active listening they can provide. Your friends and loved ones may also be available to listen, but you may feel that they may lack the skills to provide objective guidance. Counselors are trained to respond to various concerns, symptoms, and mental health conditions.

A psychologist in your city can support you toward a healthier emotional state, regardless of your mental health, life concerns, or healing needs. While supporting individuals in developing healthier habits, another good benefit of therapy is having an understanding, safe space with a non-judgmental party who can support you through challenging experiences.

A Brook Park therapist can help you confront these concerns and open up through unique methods of support. There are also many types of therapy, such as art therapy, where you may find you can express yourself through creativity instead of words.

With a lot of people in OH, providers may be booked out with clients.

How should I prepare for my first therapy session with a Brook Park counselor?

Before seeing your therapist, prep for your session by reading to understand the therapy process. You might write a list of questions you want to ask your psychotherapist, any emotional pain you may feel, and the ways in which you hope to improve. When you attend your session, let them know if you have any concerns about therapy or feel unsure about what to talk about. They may help guide you with open-ended therapeutic questions. The first session will often serve as an intake to get to know you as a person and learn why you're attending therapy.

Should I find a therapist or psychologist if I feel fine? 

Some simply don't feel the need to see a psychologist. However, some people may avoid attending therapy due to stigma or preconceived notions of what therapy entails. Although psychologists often support people with mental health conditions, you do not need a diagnosis or condition to attend therapy. You can discuss grief, relationship concerns, stress, or life changes and ask for general feedback and advice. A Brook Park licensed clinical social worker may help you gain power over your life and emotions while you navigate day-to-day experiences.

Gaining a new perspective on yourself through various therapies might allow you to improve your self-esteem, work through relationships, and gain a better sense of your mental health goals. The success you may find through therapy can be dependent on your process.

People may also attend therapy for specific motives, such as bullying, an autism diagnosis, a desire to learn mindfulness meditation, personality concerns, trouble with office workers, specific phobias, and many other principles.

Is mental health care and therapy worth it? 

Therapy is effective and has the power to change individuals' lives. Each client is at a different stage of their emotional healing journey in life, as each human can be unique in their personality, expression, skills, and goals. A psychologist can target various symptoms, experiences, and personalities to help you feel your best and put you on the path to healing. Unlike advice from a friend, family, or non-professional, a mental health professional has an understanding of various disorders like ADHD and depression with many hours of experience in treating adults in their practice. For this reason, seeing an evidence based psychologist in Brook Park, Ohio can be worth it. Over 41 million adults in the US attend therapy services each year, showing it's a popular option and is proven to be effective.

Brook Park has many clinicians who practice person or client-centered individual therapy in-person and through online therapy to assist clients in their healing journey.

Many people struggling with anxiety and depression, substance abuse, body image issues, and more find therapists that are a good fit for them, feel supported, and gain further insight into their lives through internet-based therapy.

Do therapists judge you in therapy sessions?

The boundaries between you and a therapist are in place to help you and them regarding ethical concerns. Mental health professionals are held by ethical standards through the American Psychological Association (APA) and are not allowed to judge or harm their clients. If you are concerned about sharing details about yourself, feel free to withhold personal information. Their job in the therapeutic relationship is to create a safe place, help you gain a deeper understanding of your mental health, and support you. You might consider changing counselors if you don't feel safe or respected.
