We have led mental health seminars with leaders at Marco’s Pizza, Tony Packos, and with Toledo’s Mothers of Multiples Organization.

Our therapists and staff are proud to be from Northwest Ohio- our children are educated here and this is where we live, work, and play. We feel grateful to play a part in serving the individuals, couples and families in our community.

    As Toledoans we truly believe in our city’s motto: You Will Do Better in Toledo, and we humbly continue to offer our very best to the people who make this city great.

    At The Willow Center you get therapists, counselors, relationship and behavioral specialists who see their work as more than just a way to merely earn a living. Talk with any of our staff or clinicians and you’ll find a professional who is dedicated to serving the needs of people in our community with the belief that our work matters deeply. We believe that serving an individual, family, or couple has ripple effects that go on for decades longer than we will even get to see ourselves. We believe that the work we do to heal families, adults, teens, kids, couples and individuals changes the world in meaningful ways for generations. And that’s a pretty great reason to get up and come to work every day. At Willow our counseling work is more than just our job - it’s Our Calling.

    💖Day 2 of relationship advice with our relationship specialists💖

    Today we are hearing from Michelle Ruelke, AASDA and Relationship Specialist trained in Gottman level 1 and 2! She says,

    “Practice the pause. Before you speak or act, ask yourself if what you’re about to do or say is going to help or hurt your relationship. It takes 5 positive interactions to make up for one negative interaction. Therefore, you want to express your feelings and wants/needs without criticizing your partner and creating a negative interaction.“
