Hello, I am Dr. Felicia Acton, and I am a clinical psychologist at Horizons Counseling Services. I received my doctoral degree in psychology (Psy.D.) at Argosy University in Schaumburg, Illinois and 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.
I am trained in the diagnosis and treatment of behavioral and emotional disorders. Although I generally practice from an emotion-focused (EFT) & cognitive behavioral (CBT) orientation, I use an integrative approach tailored to each individual or family. I believe that the most important aspect of successful therapy is the therapeutic relationship. Change happens best within a trusting and safe relationship. I view each client as unique and special in his or her own way, and I strive to build on strengths and abilities. My clients are ultimately the experts of their own experiences which is partly why I believe a collaborative approach is most effective.
I work primarily with children and adolescents age 7 and older, adults and families. While working with children and adolescents, I involve parents as needed. I treat a variety of issues including (among others): anxiety, depression, self-esteem issues, grief, coping skills, relationship difficulties, and parent-guidance.
