Counseling Services

The College of Nursing is committed to supporting the mental health and wellbeing of our students, and we are proud to be among the first colleges at Ohio State to proactively offer psychotherapy services to students struggling with mental illness or emotional difficulties. Psychotherapy is a collaborative treatment based on the relationship between an individual and their therapist. Most often grounded in dialogue, it provides a supportive environment that allows you to talk openly with someone who is objective, neutral and non-judgmental (American Psychological Association, 2019).

Shelby Woith, M.A., L.P.C.C., is a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Psychology from Ohio University, and a Master of Arts Degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Walsh University. Shelby has experience working in both community and college counseling centers providing mental health services to individuals with emotional and substance related concerns. Most recently she has served as a clinician at Columbus State Community College.

I strive to empower others to reach their full potential by providing a balance of support and guidance, as I believe that mental health and wellness plays a key role in student success. I am excited to be a part of The Ohio State University, College of Nursing community to advocate for others and reduce stigma associated with mental health.
