How do I make an appointment?

Call (513) 529-4634 during our business hours (8AM to 5PM). The receptionist will arrange for an initial consultation (20-30 mins).

The purpose of the initial consultation is to identify your problems and to explore how to best meet your needs. The counselor that you meet with will explore with you the various options available to you and will help you to make a decision among these options. In an emergency, we work hard to see you as soon as possible.

If you have any questions about any of our services, if you would like to consult about a situation, or if you would like to schedule an appointment, please give us a call.
