I am licensed in Ohio as a licensed social worker and liscensed chemical dependency counsleor, I have been in practice since 1995 when I graduated from Case Western Univeristy with a Master's in clinical social work. I have worked in private practice as well as hospitals, employee assistance and corporations. My primary therapy orientation is person-centered, inasmuch as I strongly believe that a strong therapeutic relationship is paramount for client growth. I maintain that therapy should be an authentic experience, and the client’s need to be heard, valued, and understood is primary. I see my role as both a leader and a follower in treatment to promote client change, and thus I practice a balance of basic empathy and unconditional positive regard, versus directiveness in therapy. While I like to operate from an insight-oriented therapeutic stance, as I deem change that happens inside-out to be most lasting, it requires clients to have a certain level of insight into their concerns. It can be frustrating for clients who do not know what is judicious to discuss in sessions, and therefore I work with clients as well to encourage outside-in changes that can be used as a springboard to promote insight and effect lasting change. I understand that each individual is not an illness or label, rather a person with multiple contributing factors towards his or her distress and/or reasons that are his or her impetus for seeking help. For this reason, I try my best, as renowned psychotherapist Irvin Yalom puts it, to “create a new therapy for each client.” I use theory and techniques from ACT, CBT/REBT, Interpersonal Process Therapy, Emotion-Focused Therapy, Existential Therapy, Crisis Intervention, Mindfulness, Narrative Therapy, Psychodynamic Theory, Psychoeducation, and Solution-Focused Therapy among other modalities. I have experience working with individuals, couples, and families – adolescents and adults suffering from depression/mood disorders, anxiety, trauma/abuse, addiction and substance use, divorce, infidelity, family conflict, relationship issues, self-harming, suicidal ideations, and grief. Additionally, I have done work with clients involving career path, self-esteem/self-confidence, coping skills, life-transitions, and everyday issues. My passion lies in assisting people to find their authentic self and to improve their relationships. In individual or couples’ counseling, whether one’s unhappiness stems from mental health issues or life circumstances, it is my goal to aid folks in weeding through their thorns to gain clarity and inner peace.

I am a Licensed Independent Social Worker in the state of Ohio with a Master of Social Work Degree from the University of Louisville and four-years post graduate professional experience. After graduating with my master's, I began working in community mental health as a level three treatment specialist and coordinating care between physicians and clients of various ages, genders, sexuality, ethnicities, issues, and level of functioning. For the past two and a half years, I have been working in a private practice setting where I gain more experience in providing psychotherapy to individuals on issues such as depression, anxiety, relationships issues, family issues, grief, adjustment and phase of life issues, and issues of faith and spirituality. I have over 30 hours of training in providing teletherapy and am a Certified Clinical Telemental Health Provider with experience using video and text therapy. My therapeutic style is person-centered and often solution focused while incorporating a cognitive behavioral approach. Past clients have described delivery of therapy as warm, empathic, and down-to-earth, which I believe nurtures a safe and relaxing environment for individuals to identify their thoughts and feelings, as well as gain insight into their issues and solutions to help them resolve issues. It is my belief that even though it is hard to do at times, I believe one of the best methods of healing is to talk and let it all out – all of the hurt, all of the sadness, all of the things that get buried within – and therapy is one of the safest places to do that. I strive to provide a safe, non-judgmental space for adults and couples to reveal, feel, and heal their thoughts and emotions and gain insight and support during difficult times.

Hello, I am a Licensed Independent Social Worker with Supervisory Designation (LISW-S). I have over 10 yrs of direct mental health experience. I am grounded in a commitment to social justice, personal well-being, and the development of the whole person. I focus on depression, anxiety, stress, life changes and parenting (especially for those who care for individuals w/special needs). Typical areas of concern are emotional well-being, managing stress, relationship or family issues, identifying/exploring patterns and making desired changes. I work with clients through the process of becoming healthy individuals, offering them a place to receive both nurture and compassionate challenge. My goals are to assist individuals in the areas of 1) Self-Empowerment and Acceptance, 2) Decision-making, 3) Developing and implementing coping skills, 4) Identifying and using internal and external resources and 5) Improved positive well-being. I work with individuals (straight or LGBTQIA). I am highly competent in a variety of cultures, religions, and social and interpersonal issues. My practice core values are: 1) Autonomy - Self-determination; behavior an individual stands behind and, if reflective, would endorse and value. Autonomy is the process of doing something by one’s own decision or initiative. 2) Competence - Providing high quality, professional counseling services provided by a qualified LISW-S. 3) Effectiveness - A commitment to on-going education. It is knowing, understanding and implementing the best treatment practices available, practicing within my areas of expertise, and referring clients to other resources whenever it is in their best interest. 4) Integrity - Upholding a professional ethic regarding respect, privacy and confidentiality. 5) Respect & Diversity - Recognizing all aspects of our humanity and honor that all of these aspects remain salient to every life. This includes age, physical abilities and cognitive talents, socioeconomic status, political viewpoints, religious/spiritual and/or philosophical beliefs, sexuality, gender, racial/ethnic identities, and other unique characteristics. I offer a safe and non-judgmental place, and I would be happy to work with you.

Hello! Erwin McIntosh III here, but please call me "Mac." I have been in the helping profession for ten years now. I started out as a qualified mental health specialist and after getting my Master's Degree in Counseling Education, I obtained my License in Professional Counseling in the state of Ohio in 2015. In January of 2021, I became a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor in the state of Ohio which means that I became an independent counselor. I have worked with a many Clients in a variety of settings including adults in nursing homes, residential homes, and parents of school aged children. I apply motivational interviewing as a foundation for the integration therapy that I utilize to help Clients heal using Person-Centered approach, explore their choices to improve them using Reality Therapy, examine their self-view to improve self-esteem using Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, and finally address the need to develop peace, mindfulness, and acceptance using Peace and Mindfulness techniques. By helping the Client heal from trauma, we open the door to new positive thoughts, a new positive mood, and a new outlook which leads to new positive choices. You learn that there is more to your life than the trauma you endured which leads to more balanced self-view and world view. Decisions can now be made from a broader framework based on hope, not pain from a past left behind physically but not mentally or emotionally. "We have to let go of what was, to enjoy what is." "We can't accept new love, if we are clutching to old pain." If you will permit me, I will use empathic listening, motivational interviewing, and integration therapy to help you heal and learn to love yourself.

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

A psychologist in your city can support you toward a healthier emotional state, regardless of your mental health, life concerns, or healing needs.

How should I prepare for my first therapy session with a Munroe Falls 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 Munroe Falls 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 Munroe Falls, 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.
