Get to Know Cal (he/him)

I am honored and committed to providing evidenced-based, compassionate care to my clients.  I have dedicated my career to the treatment of eating disorders and body image concerns in various levels of care (Partial Hospitalization Programs, Intensive Outpatient Programs and Outpatient), and this has led me to understand and appreciate the challenges of individuals struggling through all phases of their eating disorder recovery. My goal is to create a relaxed, supportive therapeutic environment where people feel comfortable to share and address goals that are most important to them.

My first and primary approach is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Enhanced Cognitive Behavioral therapy (CBT-E), which are first-line treatments for Bulimia Nervosa, Binge Eating Disorder, and OSFED, as well as clients struggling with depression and anxiety.  I utilize DBT, RO-DBT ACT, and Motivational Enhancement techniques if appropriate and helpful. I enjoy collaborating with my clients and helping them identify unhelpful beliefs and behavioral patterns that are no longer useful or meeting their needs. We work together to create a plan to help make positive and meaningful changes in their lives, and I am there to support and guide them through the process.

Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my wife and two children. We love playing with our cats, listening to music, and spending time outside with nature.  

I am a proud alumnus of The Ohio State University for both my undergraduate degree in Psychology and graduate degree in Counseling Education. I am an independently licensed professional clinical counselor with a supervision designation (LPCC-S) and licensed in the state of Ohio.

Prior to joining Eating and Behavioral Health Associates, I have held various clinical and administrative positions at The Ohio State University, Nationwide Children’s Hospital, and The Center for Balanced Living/The Emily Program.  These previous training and work experiences have provided me with a variety of opportunities as a clinician, supervisor, manager and director.  A highlight has been supervising and teaching the next generation of mental health providers in the advancement of their careers. As an Adjunct Professor in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Health at OSU, I acted as preceptor for psychiatric nurse practitioners during their clinical experience for mental health.  As a past president of The Association of Ambulatory Behavioral Healthcare,  I collaborated with other mental health programs in the state of Ohio. I value continued education in the field in order to provide the best possible care to all.  Administratively, at the Center for Balanced Living, I was director of the Intensive Outpatient, Partial Hospitalization and FED-TR programs, and was the Site Director for The Emily Program-Columbus.  As a director, I believe that collaboration is key in working relationships, and supporting one’s strengths and encouraging growth is essential in building a successful team.
