Whether you’re looking for a therapist for someone you love or yourself, therapists can be found at the following locations.
- Summit Community Care Clinic (SCCC) is Summit County's integrated health center. They not only serve medical needs, but mental health needs as well. SCCC accepts most major insurance and Medicaid.
- Mind Springs Health - Mind Springs is Summit County's Community Mental Health Center. They primarily accept Medicaid and may accept insurance depending on availability.
- Private Providers - Summit has many private providers who work individually and not through any agency.
- Tele-therapy - Tele-therapy is a wonderful option for people wanting to connect with a therapist in the privacy of their own home. Tele-therapy is JUST AS EFFECTIVE as in person therapy. We encourage those who are open to give it a try.
Building Hope does not employ any mental health provider nor are we a provider of care. We do not give preference to any provider during our referral process. Building Hope does not endorse any particular therapist listed and is only providing a tool to help you search for a provider.
When seeking mental health services, it is the client's responsiblity to be properly informed of the qualifications and credentials of the therapists with whom they seek to work with. It is your legal right to be fully informed on your therapist's background and credentials. Building Hope cannot be held liable for anything that takes place between you and your provider.
It is advised that when seeking a provider, patients verify credentials with the Department of Regulatory Agencies (DORA). There are varying degrees and levels of professional qualifications which includes educational background, clinical training, supervision, as well as licensure and registration status.

how to find the right fit for therapy
Everyone agrees that there is no 'one size fits all' approach for therapy. Below is a link to a great article to help you get started. Don't be afraid to interview your therapist and even try a session or two. If it doesn't feel like a fit, that's okay! Just try another one. The important thing is that after a few sessions, with the right therapist, you should feel comfortable, hopeful and safe.
