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 trusted colleagues.  I’ll post the new address as soon as I know it.

In the meantime, I’m still available for clients.  I’ll be doing some sessions at a colleague’s office, and I’ll be available for online therapy video sessions.  As always, you can make an appointment by calling me at (614) 477-5565 or e-mailing me at
