Bailey C. Bryant, Psy.D.
licensed clinical psychologist- Adults and
dialectical behavior therapy (dbt) group
My orientation toward individual therapy has a strong humanistic flavor. In the words of Irvin Yalom, "it's the relationship that heals." I desire to form a warm and supportive relationship, free of judgment, and full of unconditional positive regard. In doing this, I take time to understand clients through their own eyes and together we form an alliance and work towards goals as a team. In addition to a humanistic influence, I also incorporate many Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) skills, positive psychology interventions, and strongly encourage patients to take care of their Minds, Bodies, and Spirits. I welcome individuals from all walks of life and I celebrate diversity. I have experience working with individuals who struggle with depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, thought disorders, personality disorders, trauma, and dual diagnoses (mental health and substance use diagnoses). I feel a deep sense of connection with all of my clients and have the utmost respect for their journeys. If you or someone you know is interested in receiving more information about my services, please feel free to contact me and I will gladly answer your questions.
Michael Borack, Ph.D.
Licensed Clinical Psychologist- Adolescents, Adults, Couples
I am a clinician with thirty-years of experience in providing psychotherapy to a diverse range of clients of all ages. I have particular experience in regard to separation and divorce, and its fallout, but also have helped many people resolve their individual struggles. My style emphasizes a gentle, non-judgmental approach to building a strong relationship between myself and my clients. I am able to bring a good therapeutic relationship to bear in helping clients connect the past and present in a manner that frees them up to make healthier choices in response to life’s challenges and stressors. I specialize in helping with depression and anxiety, or more simply put, in lowering dissatisfaction and distress in life.
Mary Mcgrath, lisw-s
licensed clinical social worker- children, adolescents, adults, families
I am a licensed mental health therapist with a great deal of experience working with children and teens (and their families), young adults, and adult women. If either you or your child is experiencing social and emotional difficulties, or life is feeling challenging or "not quite right", I invite you to contact me to decide if therapy would make sense for you at this moment. I have specialized training in the areas of play therapy and trauma therapy, and use a variety of interventions, including expressive arts and EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) therapy, to help tap into unexplored issues and – most importantly – your innate powers. I take an individualized, strengths-based approach to find practical solutions that work for each one of my clients. I work to increase emotional intelligence and build a "toolbox" of coping skills to help you or your child better navigate life's challenges. Above all, I believe in the power of the therapeutic relationship to unearth strengths that have been buried and discover potential that has been locked away. I invite you to contact me to begin this journey for either you or a loved one.

Andrea Antczak, LCDCIII, ADS
Substance abuse counselor
I specialize in treating substance abuse ranging from mild to severe from a holistic perspective. I have experience in traditional and alternative treatment modalities. My experience with addiction recovery and alternative healing practices extends over the last 10 years. I'm passionate about helping individuals to find their path to recovery through healing of the mind, body, and spirit. Unique features of my practice include the use of auricular therapy (ear acupressure, acupuncture or electrostimulation), reflexology, and nutritional education, in addition to individual counseling and group sessions. My goal is to assist those struggling with substance abuse issues through the most difficult challenges in recovery including post-acute withdrawal syndrome (PAWS), guilt and shame, triggers and cravings, low self-esteem, social anxiety, resentment and other negative emotions that can hinder the recovery process.

lorraine horine, ryt-200
Registered yoga teacher
I started doing yoga back in 1995 with a Jane Fonda VHS tape. Over the years I did yoga at home, in studios and community centers as we moved from Ohio to NJ to Florida and back, combining it with walking, running, biking and hiking. Six years ago I became more committed to practicing yoga regularly and appreciated the deep joy and peace that I didn't get from any other activity. I wanted to find out WHY yoga felt so good, and so I began Yoga Teacher Training at the Bija Yoga School in downtown Cincinnati. (Bija is led by The Yoga Bar founder Rachel Roberts, who studied under leading teachers in Asia, Europe and India and brought the wisdom back here to her hometown). I am now RYT-200 certified and have specialized training in Yin/Mindfulness. Slow and gentle yoga has eased the pain of my herniated disk; I also appreciate the introspective aspect of yin yoga so we can, as yogi Rolf Gates says "be calm and still in action, yet vibrantly alive in stillness." I feel strongly that yoga teachers should be there to encourage individuality, make helpful suggestions and ensure safety so that the practice truly belongs to the students. I hope to help spread the wonderful feeling from the spiritual and physical therapeutic benefits of yoga.
mark levine, LICDC-CS, MAC
mindfulness and addictions coach
mindfulness based stress reduction group facilitator
"I have been helping people all of my professional life. Starting first with medicine, my career later shifted to treating addictions and becoming a life coach. It was during the 12 years I treated homeless veterans suffering from substance addictions that I became immersed in the study and teaching of mindfulness.The benefits of mindfulness became readily obvious for me personally, as well as for my clients.”
My business, Minds at Peace (www. MindsatPeace.net) uses individual and group settings to teach a mindful approach to those looking to heal from addiction, or overwhelmed by emotional and physical stress.
Today I run marathons, compose music, and mindfully approach the way I eat and interact with our environment.”
