Helping people make changes since 2013.

Welcome to Keller Counseling & Associates, conveniently located near the Ohio State University and central to Columbus, Ohio. Here, our professionals know that mental health treatment is not just about decreasing symptoms: it’s about helping our clients live the lives they are meant to live. Our mission is to help our clients accomplish their goals and find a greater sense of balance and wellness in their lives.

We see individuals (children, adolescents, and adults), couples, and families in our office. We have providers on staff who are well-versed in working with the needs of school-aged youth, as well as those working with older adults. Many of our providers have worked within multiple settings, including community mental health, college counseling centers, non-profit mental health clinics, and schools.

We aim to provide care that is suited to the individual. This means that treatment planning is a process that both the counselor and the client work through together. At times, this means that the most appropriate recommendation is a referral to another provider or service in the community. Help us come alongside you as you make the changes that you are striving toward. We look forward to working with you!
