Cary Hasselbacher, MA, MPA, LPCCS

Clinical Director

The first step towards making changes in your life and finding a counselor to help can be overwhelming! I have been providing mental health and addiction treatment to individuals for over 9 years after graduating from the University of Akron. I offer my clients a non-judgmental and supportive environment filled with compassion to embark on their journey of change. I tailor the counseling process to fit each individual’s needs. I feel it is paramount to create an atmosphere of trust where the client can be free to express their thoughts without judgement.

I have experience working with individuals suffering from anxiety, depression, addiction, grief, trauma, ADHD, ADD, Bipolar, OCD, LGBTQ, domestic violence, self-esteem and relationship issues. I utilize treatment techniques including CBT, DBT, Trauma Focused, Motivational Interviewing, Play Therapy, and Sand Tray Therapy. I empower my clients with skill sets that will not only be valuable to their current issues, but will serve them throughout their lifetime. I find nothing more rewarding than watching a client grow and thrive through the counseling process and commitment to change! I have a laid back personality with a good sense of humor that helps others feel comfortable opening up. I believe that your counseling experience should be tailored to you and your specific needs. I work to facilitate open communication so that you feel comfortable collaborating on the best treatment for you.

Joeseph Turner

CASE MANAGER & ALUMNI PRESIDENT

Hello, I am Joe Turner. I am the Case Manager as well as the Alumni President here at APR. I am a proud High School graduate from The Canton McKinley Bulldogs. I have my Associate’s degree in Human and Social Services from Stark State College. I have both my Bachelor’s degree and Master’s Degree from the University of Akron. I spent 18 years in the Juvenile Justice Field and just recently transferred over to adults with addiction. I am currently an Adjunct Instructor at Stark State College where I teach Substance Abuse, Human Behavior, Social Welfare, and Social Work Practice. I am also one of the associate Ministers at First Church of God in Christ.

No Matter where I am, or what I am doing, my passion is to help. I am a firm believer in as long as you are alive, you have hope. That is why I enjoy going above and beyond to help because sometimes people just do not see the potential they have to overcome life’s struggles.
