Welcome to C.J. Hendry & Associates

Counseling Center

Providing Help for all ages!

 We provide quality counseling for children, adolescents, adults, couple, and families through an individualized, collaborative treatment approach, in a safe, caring, comfortable environment at our private location. 

 C.J. Hendry & Associates has been providing mental health services to the community since 1991 on the west side of Cleveland. Over the years the practice has grown considerably and established a solid reputation for clinical excellence and quality client care. Consequently, clients travel considerable distances from all over the north east Ohio to meet with our counselors. 

Referrals are received from a variety of sources, including former clients, medical practices, employee assistance groups, business owners, insurance companies, churches, and community groups. 

In 2010, C.J. Hendry & Associates was chosen by the Cleveland Council of Smaller Enterprises (COSE) as one of the ten best small businesses in Cleveland, receiving the Ten Under 10 Award. The company was recognized for it's best practices in innovation, growth, and success, value to community and the environment., diversity, promotion, and customer service excellence.  

One of the distinctives of  C.J. Hendry & Associates counselors is that as well as being State Licensed Professional, and Clinical Counselors, they are also trained to integrate Christian perspectives into treatment for those clients for whom this approach is meaningful. 

 The administrative staff of C.J. Hendry & Associates will assist in checking if our services are covered by your insurance plan, answering your questions, and connecting you with the most suitable counselor to address your concerns. Our counselors are dedicated to serving you. 

A recommendation for Victoria Todd, Child Adolescent & Adult Psychotherapy & Psychoanalysis

 For many years, I shared and office space with C.J. Hendry & Associates in Westlake. During that time, I had considerable opportunity to observe their interactions with clients. I was consistently impressed with the caring attitude they showed towards others. Even more impressive, they are deeply committed to continuing education, so that they can provide more intensive treatment to individuals who suffer with complicated mental health problems. I would highly recommend their services to anyone seeking Christian counseling services. 

Please contact us today for more information or schedule and appointment. 


In January of 2016, Founder Carol J. Ball transitioned C. J. Hendry & Associates to the ownership of REACH Counseling Services.  C. J. Hendry will continue the present operation in the city and its presence in              the community.
