Grody Family Counseling - No Judgment, No Labels, Just Positive Change -- (614) 477-5565

Carl Grody, LISW-S, specializes in child, adolescent, and family therapy.  He's been in private practice for eight years after spending three years with the Community Psychiatric Support (CSP) Team at Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus.  Grody is a trained group leader in the Incredible Years parenting program, and he is the family therapy columnist for Columbus Parent magazine.

Evening and Saturday hours are available.


Grody Family Counseling is moving from its office on 808 High St. in Worthington. I’m not sure where the new office will be yet or even the setup; I’m discussing a possible group practice with a couple of my trusted colleagues, and we’re looking for office space together. If that plan falls through, I’ll just find another office of my own.  Either way, I’ll post the new address as soon as I know it.

In the meantime, though, I’m still available for clients as always. I’ll be doing some sessions at a colleague’s office in Grandview in the interim. I’ll also be available for e-therapy sessions, which is an area that I’ve been wanting to explore. Either way, don’t hesitate to call for an appointment.

As always, you can call me at (614) 477-5565 or e-mail me at
