I am Craig L. Fitzgerald, a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor and a Registered Play Therapist (RPT). As your counselor, I will journey alongside as you move through the process of development from the inside out. Based upon individual needs, I use a variety of techniques, including play therapy, to create an environment that fosters healing and growth. Even with adult clients, I often employ the concept of "play" to help with therapy because I believe you can "learn more about a person in an hour of play than a year of conversation."

In addition to working with adolescents, I specialize in treating adults with autism or those who struggle with depression, anxiety and trauma. I value the time it takes to build the foundation for a trusting and safe relationship.

Engaging in the process of psychotherapy invites you to become more self-aware. This heightened awareness can inspire and encourage you to seek changes in your relationship with yourself and others. I join in collaboration with my clients to better understand past and present experiences and how they currently affect life options, choices, and decisions. As a therapist, I draw upon clients’ emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual resilience to support healing and engagement in life.

Hi! Welcome. I enjoy learning about my clients and helping them figure out how to be happier and more productive. My focus is treating trauma, anxiety, addictions, depression or ADD. Many people have a combination of these issues. Don't think you are alone, most people have something going on. I know it is sometimes uncomfortable to contact a therapist especially if you have a history of trauma. I have been told I am easy to talk to. I listen to my clients and actively work on approaches to help. I take most insurance panels including Medicaid to help with the cost of therapy.

I received specialized training in child clinical mental health counseling through the world-renowned Center for Play Therapy at the University of North Texas, and am a member of the Ohio Association for Play Therapy. My passion is to provide a safe therapeutic atmosphere in which children can freely express thoughts and feelings and increase both self-awareness and self-regulation through play. I also believe in the therapeutic power of family and educators in the life of a child and strongly encourage their involvement in the therapeutic process.

Each day it seems that life presents a new challenge, often causing us to question certain decisions that we have made or to consider new paths that we would like to explore. My goal is to gain a clear picture of each individual's needs, explore new and more effective ways of problem solving, and help each individual develop greater insight and growth. I believe the relational component of therapy is essential and serves at the foundation for establishing trust, compassion, empathy, and respect. I have expertise in working with individuals of all ages: children, adolescents, adults and families.

PLEASE NOTE: I AM NOT ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS Tired of second-guessing yourself, worrying about what others think, or feeling chronically anxious? Ready to improve your relationship with yourself, so you can enjoy being YOU? I work collaboratively with adults to help them build on their strengths and heal the wounds of the past. My approach is trauma-informed, meaning I am not looking for what is "wrong" with you, but rather what has happened in your life that may be influencing your present experience. No matter what you have been through, I believe you have the potential to know greater calm, clarity, and happiness.

"Pain is inevitable, suffering is optional." ~Haruki Murakami.. Interpretations of events throughout our lives plays a fundamental role in our level of satisfaction in life. Understanding perspective, which shapes our view of the world, is essential in the change process. Because of this understanding I use an eclectic approach to counseling with an emphasis on Cognitive Restructuring to help my clients navigate through life's ups and downs. Working in several different areas of mental health including community mental health, substance abuse, and home- based family counseling has given me the opportunity to work with individuals and families from diverse populations and socioeconomic statuses.

Oppositional Defiance Therapists
All children are oppositional from time to time. But their behavior can become incessantly and openly uncooperative such that it stands out relative to other children. Oppositional Defiant Disorder (or sometimes referred to as "ODD") tends to be evidenced by frequent temper tantrums, excessive arguing with adults, the questioning of rules, active defiance and refusal to comply with adult requests. You may also see deliberate attempts to annoy or upset people, blaming of others, being touchy or easily annoyed by others, frequent anger and resentment, mean and hateful talking when upset, a spiteful attitude and revenge seeking.

These therapists can help with oppositional defiance in Columbus or provide counseling for parents handling an oppositional defiant kid in Columbus, oppositional defiant teen or oppositional defiant children in Columbus.
