Manage Anxiety, Depression & Mental Health
Online and In-Person Therapy in Ohio

Anxiety and Mental Health Treatment.  

On the surface, it may seem like you have it all together, but on the inside you’re suffering. Stress and anxiety, sadness and depression can feel there is no way out. 

You may feel like there is no hope or real help for depression and anxiety. 

Perhaps you are doing all that you can, you’re checking all the boxes, but you still feel lost. Anxiety, sadness and a general feeling of being stuck follows you, no matter how hard you try to run from these emotions.

But there are proven techniques and tools that can help treat anxiety and replace hope for depression. 

Anxiety and depression can be debilitating at times. These symptoms can impact every area of your functioning and every facet of your life. 

If you let your overwhelmed state of being go unacknowledged for a prolonged period of time, it can lead to chronic disturbances in your physical, emotional, cognitive and relational functioning.

Persistent depression and anxiety, if left unaddressed, can have a negative impact on your sense of self, relationships, physical health and work performance.

Your inner spark starts to dull, and you’re no longer living a life of purpose.

Positive Change is Possible through Evidence-based Anxiety & Depression Treatment. 

One out of four Americans will experience a significant psychological issue this year, but only a small percentage will seek out professional help in the way you are doing. It takes courage and strength to ask for help and it would be my pleasure to facilitate the change you are seeking in your life. 

Therapy practices, such as cognitive behavioral therapy, positive psychology practices and mindfulness, help you to untangle the areas of your life that keep you stuck, so you can ultimately let go of negative emotions, beliefs, thoughts and experiences. 

Therapy can help you learn how to gain the necessary skills and tools to conquer your stress, anxiety and depression in the present and in the future. It allows you the space to learn how to understand, make sense of and accept why we are functioning in this way and then learn new practices to help get insight, peace and acceptance of who you are today.

Dave Stefan, Ph.D.
Licensed Professional Counselor
Professional Certified Coach

Hello, my name is Dr. Dave Stefan. I’d like to welcome you to the Come Alive Counseling and Coaching Collaborative. I know life can feel overwhelming and confusing (and also hopeful) when you decide to reach out for support. 

As someone who has faced significant personal and professional challenges and come out on the other side with a much richer and more grounded sense of who I am, I can understand the range of emotions you might be experiencing.


You can learn more about how I managed my depression and improved my sense of well-being and happiness through my "12 Months to Live" and "Gratitude Project" podcast series. 

Based on my educational background, training, and personal experiences, I strive to create an environment that offers compassionate understanding, challenging encouragement, and research-based solutions.

What others have said about our work together...

Dave’s attentiveness, compassion, introspection, and gentle prodding were pivotal in enabling me to breach distinct mental and emotional boundaries... 


"I feel much more calm."


Dr. Stefan helped me work on my self-talk, which has helped me manage my emotions more and start to feel better overall.
