I've been receiving counseling from Dr. Teachout for a while now and I could not ask for a better counselor. At the lowest moments of life due to circumstances and sudden curveballs, Dr. Teachout has helped to keep a good positive rational outlook. Dr. Teachout is also very good with children. My child trusts "Dr. T" and has opened up with him which is a small miracle for a parent with a teenage child struggling to get through the most critical years of their academic career. We've learned alot from Dr. Teachout and we utilize the recommendations he's made which have made a world of difference. His office is convieniently located and his hours are very accomodating. Just stepping into his office a soothing experience because of the comfortable ambience. Not your typical doctors office. Dr. T's office is very warm and comforting. I found his billing staff to be helpful and extremely efficient. I highly recommend Dr. Teachout to everyone and anyone.

Very kind, knowledgeable, definitely not using cognitive behavioral therapy, client must be motivated to process the difficult issues and work toward regaining positive responses to daily life. Very supportive on any subject.
Maybe it just wasn't a good fit, but I did not find my sessions with Dr. Teachout to be helpful. I needed short-term disability paperwork filled out. He spent the last part of our session repeating himself about how he'd get it done. He then charged me about $65 for what I know was about five minutes of work. I cancelled one appointment a day and a half in advance. I'd never cancelled before. I received a bill for $180 for the missed appointment. The woman who does his billing said this was not an usual practice, and acted like she was doing me a huge favor by reducing it to $50. She stated that I should have known the policy. Again, Dr. Teachout may be a great therapist for others- he's knowledgeable and has a gentle demeanor- but I did not like my experience with him.
