Counseling for Individuals and Couples

Welcome!  I'm Mark Kaplafka, a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor who works with individuals and couples in the Cleveland area and I'm so glad you've taken the first step into changing your life and finding more happiness. I've created a safe, compassionate, and comfortable space for you to explore your concerns and challenges and to realize that change is possible. 

It's my hope that working together will help you to realize that things can be different, things can improve, and that you are more AMAZING than you realize.  Whether you’re struggling with anxiety, depression, relationship issues or adjusting to life stressors, I want you to know that there is HOPE!

One of things I feel very strongly about is making sure you find the right therapist.  What I mean by this is finding a counselor that you feel understands you, gets you, and that you sincerely want to meet with to work through your difficulties in counseling.  It takes a lot of courage to contact a therapist and to really take an honest look at your life and the need for change.  I believe therapists should help their clients feel safe, comfortable and supported.  This is why I focus on building a strong therapeutic relationship that is based on compassion, understanding and empathy. This foundation allows us to partner together in a collaborative manner to wotk toward achieving your goals. 

So, look at my website and if you think I might be a good fit for you, contact me for a free 15 minute consultation to talk through your questions!
