We would like to take this opportunity to introduce you to Compass Point Counseling Services. This practice was established to provide the highest quality of counseling and client care within our community, and to do so in a positive environment where input and teamwork are encouraged. We strive to provide quality mental health services with skill, dedication and compassion, while adhering to the highest ethical standards.
We are a multi-specialty group private practice which utilizes a team approach as an important tool in providing specialized care. Our diverse practitioners bring individual, family, couple and group counseling to the four corners of the Cincinnati area. We have adopted a collaborative approach with a strong emphasis on case consultation, team supervision and continuous clinician development. This allows us to focus on giving our clients the best therapy from the most qualified clinicians.
We are first and foremost hired by our clients, to use our expertise on their behalf. Since each of our clients is unique, we do not take a cookie-cutter approach to counseling. Our clinicians will propose a care plan after an appropriate assessment. This care plan will be based on the client’s reasons for seeking help while incorporating their personal goals and strengths.
