Hello, my name is Dr. Felicia Acton, and I am a clinical psychologist at Horizons Counseling Services. I received my doctoral degree in psychology (PsyD) at Argosy University in Schaumburg, Illinois. I am licensed by The Ohio Board of Psychology (lic. # 7008). My pre-doctoral training included psychological assessment, group, family, and individual therapy in schools, outpatient clinics, a college counseling center, and a therapeutic day school.
As a clinical psychologist, I am trained in the diagnosis and treatment of behavioral and emotional disorders. I practice from an emotion-focused (EFT) and cognitive behavioral (CBT) orientation, but use an integrative approach that is tailored to each individual. I do find the most important aspect of successful therapy is fostering the therapeutic relationship. I believe that change can only happen within a trusting and safe relationship. I view each client as unique and special in their own way, and I strive to build on strengths and abilities that one already possesses. I view my clients as being the expert on their own experiences and find a collaborative approach is most effective in making changes. I work primarily with children and adolescents, age 7 and older, adults and families. In working with children and adolescents, I tend to involve parents as needed. I treat a variety of issues including: anxiety, depression, self-esteem issues, grief, coping skills, relationship difficulties, parent guidance, and a variety of emotional and behavioral difficulties with children.
