Individual and Family Therapist
30 Northwoods Blvd., Columbus , OH
I believe that all families are unique in their own way, as are the problems that they face. I use a systems based approach to address the various issues within the family. Participation from each family member is extremely important, as a family is only as healthy as the sum of its parts. I am dedicated to helping to restore your family to optimal functioning and will tailor a unique treatment plan to help you do this. Restoring families is my passion and I am confident that my approach will help you do just that.

I specialize in family therapy with families with children with learning disabilities and mental health issues. My approach focuses on how the parents can help their children deal with their issues. Many times, parenting can contribute to the disorder and your child can become more anxious and this can lead to poor school performance and problems with peer relationships. Together we will come up with strategies to help you and your child.

In my practice at Meers, Inc., I have particular interest in working with mothers and daughters who are experiencing difficulties within their relationship. In family therapy, I focus on providing a safe and supportive environment for mothers and daughters to explore their concerns with one another and to collaboratively identify ways to regain “balance” within their mother-daughter relationship. Part of the process is highlighting areas of strength and identifying areas needed for growth. Contact me today and let me help you achieve greater understanding of one another, as well as learn more effective ways to work together as a team vs. opponents. -Dr. Kelli Riedl of Meers, Inc.

In our years of treating children, we have found it very valuable to treat the child while also providing family therapy. The parents have the most important role in the child's life and it is therefore invaluable to include the parents and often siblings to address the client's struggle. Our approach to family therapy is to meet with all members of the family who will be involved in the counseling separately or in smaller groups in order to get a clear picture of the identified problem. We then bring the family together to increase positive communication, encourage understanding and compassion among family members, strengthen relationships, and find a common goal among the family members.
Tonya Coover, PCC-SUPV
Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor
121 Town Street, Gahanna, OH
We all come from a family and our lives are eternally linked and affected by those relationships. Families are complex and it takes a very skilled therapist to work in various dimensions of the system, simultaneously to create deep and meaningful change. I am a certified therapist AND supervisor in Multi-Dimensional Family Therapy (MDFT), a model supported by over 10 published clinical trials with successful outcomes, I have successfully helped the most dysfunctional families replace broken communication patterns with healthy ways of interacting, allowing healing and restoration for each person involved. It's hard work for everyone, but the results have generational benefits.

There is a time and a place for each person to work on himself/herself individually. However, we are rarely alone. Many of us live within a family system. As in all systems, there are strengths and there are issues. We will use the strengths to create solutions to the issues. First by indentification, then by understanding. We will work with respect and compassion that is reflected in the communication and coping skills of the family.
