Individual Psychotherapy and Counseling
Everyone, no matter how well-adjusted, can benefit from personalized support. You can meet with the psychologist or psychiatrist one-on-one to discuss changes you want to make in your life, skills you want to develop, emotions you want to unburden, and more. Individual psychotherapy allows you to gain insight into your thoughts, behaviors, emotions, and relationships, and equips you for therapeutic change.

If you suspect you might have a behavioral health condition, such as Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), but have never been diagnosed, our licensed psychologist can offer you this testing. You will receive a personalized report with diagnosis and treatment recommendations. The results of your assessment will always remain confidential.
The psychologist can also offer personality assessment and other self-exploration tools that can help you gain insight into your traits, coping styles, and interpersonal relationships.
If you are experiencing symptoms that might be improved with psychotropic medication, you can consult with one of our psychiatrists to determine a course of treatment that is right for you. He or she can provide in-depth education about psychopharmacology. Prescriptions can be filled with or without the use of insurance, depending on your preference.
Our licensed psychologist and psychiatrist offer wellness education workshops for residency programs and medical departments. We offer topics such as: stress management, physician burnout, communication skills, work-life balance, time management, social support, and more. These workshops will never include an evaluative component, and all content will be kept strictly confidential.
Contact us to schedule a workshop for your department.
Wellness Orientation Visits
Our wellness orientation initiative is designed to diminish barriers to accessing mental health and wellness resources for all first-year house staff at Akron Children’s Hospital and Summa Health, and all new hires to Summa Health Medical Group and Akron Children’s medical staff. The wellness check-in itself is not designed to be formal mental health treatment, and is not just for those who are struggling. Rather, it offers every provider an opportunity to self-reflect, engage in a safe, supportive, and fully confidential conversation about how things are going, and remain proactive in regards to professional growth and wellbeing.
