WE ARE MOVING
The weekend of January 27, 2023, we will be moving to our new location at 1480 Manning Parkway, Powell, OH 43065. Any sessions that are scheduled for January 27 or 28 will be via telehealth. Your clinician will send you a telehealth link through your portal.
If you are scheduled for an appointment on or after January 30, you will be coming to our new office. We believe this new location is more serene, offering clients an even greater sense of peace and comfort while we continue to provide excellent services.
NEW NAME, NEW LOGO
Starting in 2022 we added a licensed professional coach through the International Coaching Federation and we have found this addition extremely beneficial for clients who are less inclined to need a counselor, but still want to seek direction and improve their life circumstances.

Decision to Meet Face-to-Face
Most of our clinicians welcome in person sessions while a few are offering telehealth only. If there is a resurgence of the pandemic or if other health concerns arise, however, your clinician may require that you meet via telehealth. If you have concerns about meeting through telehealth, please bring these concerns to your clinician’s attention.
If you decide at any time that you would feel safer staying with, or returning to, telehealth services, your clinician will respect that decision. If you utilize your insurance for counseling sessions, reimbursement for telehealth services are determined by the insurance companies and applicable law, so you will need to address these concerns with your insurance company.
Your Responsibility to Minimize Your Exposure
To obtain services in person, you agree to take certain precautions which will help decrease the spread of the corona virus. Please consider these requests prior to coming into our offices:
- You will only keep your in-person appointment if you are symptom free.
- If you are sick and wish to cancel for this reason, you will not be charged your normal cancellation fee.
- If you come in contact with someone who tests positive for the corona virus, you will immediately let your clinician know and sessions can take place via telehealth.
If You or Your Counselor Is Sick
We are committed to keeping you and our staff healthy and avoid the spread of this virus. If your counselor has tested positive for the coronavirus, he/she will notify you in order to take appropriate precautions and stop the spread of this virus.
If you have any questions about these guidelines, please let us know.
DCG RELEASES A SERIES OF SHORT VIDEOS HIGHLIGHTING VARIOUS MENTAL HEALTH ISSUES AND TREATMENT OPTIONS
Directions Counseling Group is now releasing short videos highlighting various mental health conditions. Each 2-3 minute video is designed to give a brief overview of a mental health issue or a form of therapy.
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADD/ADHD) is one of the most prevalent and misunderstood conditions in the world, according to Sarah D. Wright, ADHD Awareness Month Coalition Chair. Directions Counseling Group has joined this education movement to create greater awareness and understanding about attention deficit disorder by preparing a short video entitled “Adult ADHD – what others see and what’s actually taking place,” which can be found on YouTube.
Leslie Marshall-Hansen, MA, LPCC-S, Chief Operating Officer at Directions Counseling Group, specializes in adult ADHD and states, “My hope is that when adults with ADHD see this, they have a moment when they realize, ‘There’s a reason why my brain works like this’,” says Marshall-Hansen.
“Our goal is to educate men and women about ADHD, to dispel myths that keep people from seeking appropriate treatment, and to provide tools to help minimize the impact of this disorder,” she continues.
