20 years of experience as a therapist

My name is Froogh Khatibloo and I am a Licensed professional Clinical Counselor with over 20-years of experience providing psychotherapy/counseling, harm reduction services for adolescents and adults in State of Ohio and I am happy to share the wealth of knowledge I have gained during my decades in community mental health. I am currently listed as network providers of multiple health insurance company panels as well as EAP plans, Medicare, Medicaid, and Bureau of Workers Compensations. I offer therapy for individuals or couples that are experiencing life transition and enjoy the challenge of working with wide range of people and their concerns. I do however, have some specific interest and areas of expertise. I am trained in and practiced from harm reduction perspective, meeting people where they are at their struggle with alcohol and substance abuse concerns and helping them set their goals for change. I blend cognitive behavioral technique, interpersonal therapy, and mindfulness practice to address depression, anxiety, and mood disorders with a exploitation of the underlying cause of distress. I prioritize creating safe spaces where survivors access their natural resilience promote healing to recover from trauma and loss. I use motivational interviewing techniques to help people get unstuck from the patterns that trouble them most and make desired changes in their lives to change their habit and setting their goals. I help people with employment and career consultation to recover from job loss, change careers, deal with workplace, apply for disability, and address creative blocks. I provide an accepting space for discovery in which people can explore their identity by learning who they are, where they are going, and who they want to be. I teach interpersonal skills and copying tools to help people to learn anger management and conflict resolution, so that they can communicate assertively and improve their relationships. I welcome everybody and I am particularly interested in inviting those who may not feel as comfortable in all treatment spaces: members of LGBT communities, people wanting to talk about size acceptance, people of color, and members of marginalized groups. Additionally, I am able to provide clinical supervision for unlicensed mental health professionals, graduate students, and consultation for peers seeking additional assistance.

Hello, I want to start by saying you are taking the first step on the path to support, understanding, and stability. My name is Jen Tenbrook. I am a Licensed Independent Social Worker in the state of Ohio. I graduated from Cleveland State University with my MSW in 2015. I started my career as a home based therapist. During this time, I met with individuals/families where they were comfortable (home or somewhere in the community). I would work with individual family members and have sessions with all family members. Individual sessions addressed depression, anxiety, anger management, stress, and more. Family sessions addressed conflict, communication, and more. I am currently a medical social worker and cover Cardiology, GI, and Orthopedic patients. Some of the issues I address in this field are coping with life changes, grief, stress, and more. I believe there are different challenges throughout our lifetime and growth is always possible. Some situations may be more difficult to overcome and I would be happy to help you navigate through that challenge. The basis of my approach is client centered and solution focused. I strive to create a comfortable and non-judgmental environment where you can express yourself. I believe everyone deserves to be treated with respect and compassion. I am open to all kinds of expression as some may enjoy art, journaling, talking, etc. If you prefer live chat and texting, I would be happy to work with you on those platforms. If you feel we are a great fit I look forward to working with you!

How should I prepare for my first therapy session with a Minerva 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 while offering mental health services. The first session will often serve as an intake to get to know you as a person and learn why you're attending therapy in Minerva Park.

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 from a therapist. A Minerva 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 with a counselor 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 that a counselor can help with.

Is mental health care and therapy worth it? 

Therapy with a licensed counselor 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 Minerva 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.

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.
