The Willow Center started as an idea in the heart of our founder, Erin Wiley, back in 2006 when she first dreamt of earning a Master’s Degree to become a Licensed Clinical Counselor.
Having benefited from therapy herself, she envisioned what it could look like to be able to help others as much as she had been helped by her own therapist. In 2008, once both of her sons were in elementary school, she entered the Mental Health Counseling program at BGSU. During her studies she imagined opening a Toledo-area private practice that would serve the community with the highest-quality counseling services around, helping individuals, couples and families; kids, teens and adults. Erin began her clinical work with clients in 2011, and after five years of clinical experience she opened The Willow Center.
The Willow Center started out as a single room office - with no waiting room and only one employee - and has grown to the largest practice in town. Now with 37 therapy offices in two locations and over 45 therapists, interns, psychiatrists, staff, and administrative assistants. The Willow Center has won Toledo City Paper’s “Best of Toledo” award the last six years in a row, so they can confidently call themselves the best counseling practice in town.
