The Counseling Center of Columbiana County
As of July 2021, the Counseling Center will bs seeing clients for in-person services.
However, we still offer telehealth and video conferencing, that will remain an option for our services for those clients who prefer this method.
In that the Center is considered a healthcare facility by the state of Ohio, there are still less than 50% of all individuals in the community who have received the vaccine (including our staff), we will continue to observe the following:
- · Clients, staff, and visitors/vendors, will all need to continue to wear masks, social distance, and sanitize when coming into any of our buildings, and
- · Clients and visitors’ temperature checks will continue to be conducted by receptionists.
The Counseling Center proudly introduces another psychiatric professional at our Salem Office… Dr. Susan Phillips…Now Accepting New Patients
Dr. Susan Phillips, an Advanced Practice Nurse of Psychiatry, has joined our medical team of caring practitioners. She began working at our Salem office this month.
Dr. Phillips comes to the Center with 36 years of nursing experience with 28 years at the advanced practice level. She earned a Doctor of Nursing from Case Western Reserve University and a Master of Public Health from the University of Massachusetts, completing a postdoctoral fellowship in the field of quality improvement in healthcare. Dr. Phillip’s advocacy for population health extends beyond her clinical work to the community, where she works on outreach projects to address housing and food insecurity through a hot meals program and through Habitat for Humanity. She is a member of the American Psychiatric Nurses Association and the American Public Health Association. Dr. Phillips recently retired after 21 years of service for the VA Northeast Ohio Healthcare System. She continues to serve as an adjunct professor at Case Western Reserve University.
Dr. Philips emphasizes that she believes “the most effective form of recovery from a mental health condition is patient-directed, based on the unique, individual strengths, experiences, and preferences of each client.”
Dr. Phillips and her family were long time members of the Salem community. It was in Salem that she met and married her husband before moving to the Canton area. She stated, “I am thrilled with the opportunity to, once again, become a member of the Salem community.”
“Being off work and away from others may keep you safe from the Coronavirus, but it can also be a source of stress, anxiety and depression. Call the Counseling Center of Columbiana County and schedule a confidential telephone or video counseling session. You can even get prescriptions for needed medications.

Making the First Contact
Most people make first contact with the Center by telephone. Their calls are directed to the Screening Department, and the caller will often hear a message explaining the process and asking the caller to leave his or her name, a phone number where they can be reached, and if it is okay for the screener to leave a message with someone else or on a machine.
One of our screeners will then contact the individual. They will gather background information, assess the problem, and determine which services may be appropriate. At this screening, fees and insurance coverage may also be discussed.
Information the Screener May Request
- Phone Number
- Birth Date
- Social Security Number
- A Brief Summary of the Problem or Need
- Insurance Information
- Household Income and Number of Persons in the Household (This is to determine the amount of fee, if any, the individual will be responsible for.)
What Happens Next?
After this initial discussion, an appointment is scheduled to meet the caller’s needs (for example, counseling, a group program, vocational services, housing, etc. In some cases, we may not be able to provide the help being requested. In this event, the screener or other staff member will help the caller to contact other local available resources.
