About Me

Hello! It can be a scary process to start therapy and I will do my best to respect who you are and what goals you are seeking. I believe therapy should be a two way street where you and I work together to decide what is best for you. Your current emotional struggle does not have to define your future. Working together, my hope is to help empower, encourage and educate you in finding resolution to this struggle.

I’ve been a clinical counselor for 20 years and currently work in a private practice. I specialize in alcohol and drug issues along with depression, anxiety, grief, trauma, bipolar, work issues, spirituality struggles, family & relationship issues, marriage and divorce struggles, ADHD management for adults and adolescents, teen issues, life transitions, self esteem, anger and stress management. I have extensive experience helping those who are struggling with alcohol or drugs recover, along with helping those heal who have experienced trauma or loss.

My aim is to learn from each person’s story and keep an open mind so I can see what is needed to help. I will not presume to know or judge you because of what you’ve been through.

I am nationally certified as a Master Addiction Counselor and National Certified Counselor through the National Board Of Certified Counselors and am a Licensed Professional Independent Counselor in Ohio. I received my bachelors degree In Psychology from John Carroll University in Ohio and my Masters Degree in Counseling and Human Development at Walsh University in Ohio.

My experience includes: private practice, community mental health, crisis intervention and hospitalizations, alcohol and drug recovery rehab, EAP, DOT, domestic violence groups, anger management groups, alcohol/drug recovery groups, group home for troubled youth, case management, shelter for runaway street kids in New York, Harlem and California, hospice floor for AIDS patient, and terminally ill floor for kids.

My goal is to utilize my education and experience to empower and help you navigate anything you feel is holding you back in life. I believe people have the ability to get through adversity, can change and that one approach does not fit all.

I am the creator of actuallyiWILL.org which offers free online support through an app and website for those struggling with substance abuse issues. I currently work at a small private practice in Newark Ohio.

I look forward to working with you!

Timothy is professional and available without being pushy. He listens and allows me to rant, which is a good thing. He also asks questions and gives assignments, which help me think.

Timothy is great. He is constantly checking in on me if I have been too busy to respond. He lets you speak and rant freely while giving you options of how you can go about a situation! 10/10 recommend!

Timothy Welch has been a wonderful therapist. He listens, takes your lead of how you want the session to go, and respects and honors what your goals are. He is honest, genuine, supportive, and kind. He also provides empathy and clarity in his approach. I highly recommend him to help you through any tough times you are experiencing or as a mentor to help guide you through to reach your goals and provide clarity to the chaos in your life.
