Empowering Kids

Expanding our Services

Medication Management, Autism Treatment, Asian outreach


Join us as we welcome three highly qualified professionals to the DCG network of providers.  
John believes in a team approach to mental health, therefore, he works closely with his referral sources to identify the intricacies of the client’s case.  He appreciates the complexity that each case provides and is extremely thorough in his diagnostic evaluations and medication follow-ups.  Initial consultations are approximately 60-75 minutes long and each follow up appointment is 30 minutes.  Vitals are taken at appointments and medications are managed closely in order to detect any potential problems.

John prescribes most psychotropic medications for mood stabilization, depressive or anxiety symptom reduction.  In addition, he will prescribe stimulant medication when he has received a confirmed ADHD diagnosis.  John will not prescribe MAOIs, pain medications or injectables.

Currently, John sees clients on Mondays and is accepting new clients ages 16 and up.  

Nori joins us from Alpha Psychiatric Services.  While there, she gained expertise in treating patients who were diagnosed with various personality disorders, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia and other major mental health issues. 

Nori also offers expertise in bicultural issues specifically related to the Asian community.  Her fluency in the Japanese language has allowed her to counsel many clients who’ve faced significant challenges due to the cultural differences presented in the U.S.

Nori also has a PhD in Organizational Leadership with a concentration in Human Resource Development.  She is available for consultations and speaking engagements to help companies who are seeking improvement in leadership and HR issues, with special emphasis on multicultural issues and ethical responsibilities in a diverse work environment.

Nori is currently accepting new adult clients on Thursdays.

Sarah comes to DCG after 10 years at Nationwide Children’s Hospital’s Center for Autism Spectrum Disorders.  While there, Sarah served as a case supervisor and an outpatient therapist serving children and adolescents who have been diagnosed with autism, behavioral, and emotional issues.  She has extensive experience treating oppositional defiant disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder, ADHD, anxiety, phobias, and depression.  She integrates play therapy, art therapy, and cognitive behavior therapy to meet each client’s needs.

In addition to empowering children to navigate the everyday stressors that accompany mental health issues, Sarah uses a systems approach with families to help her client’s improve socially, emotionally and behaviorally in all settings.  She does this by leading parenting workshops, advocating for clients at Individualized Education Program (IEP) meetings, and collaborating with schools to create an effective intervention plan for each client.  Sarah adopts a holistic approach to counseling and works diligently to help her clients meet their full potential.

Sarah works with clients ages 6 – 22 and currently has openings on Monday afternoons and evenings.
