Moore Counseling & Mediation Services (MCMS) was started in Euclid, Ohio, in 1999 by Dr. Martina Moore and her husband, Brian Moore, and was relocated in 2007 to its current facility at 22639 Euclid Avenue in order to expand and offer workshops and trainings.
The Moores live in Euclid, and both of their sons attended Euclid High School. They located their business here due to their connection with the city and its central location between the far eastern and far western suburbs. Initially, they provided addiction counseling services to manufacturers throughout Ohio, including drugfree workplace training and policy manual creation, as well as employee assistance programs. They have since opened satellite facilities to serve downtown Cleveland and Elyria and see a total of 500 clients per week between all three locations.
The Moores joined the Euclid Chamber of Commerce 10 years ago to provide services to chamber members and organizations that network with the chamber. Mr. Moore has been a board member since that time. Dr. Moore says, “We enjoy the networking events, working to bring new businesses into the community, and helping those businesses already in the community grow and develop. It makes us feel that we are not an island; we can connect and find support from other business owners.” Currently, the chamber rents space in their facility.
Here are some ways MCMS helps local manufacturers and businesses:
- Employee-to-employee conflict mediation within an organization
- Manager-and-employee communication counseling and plan creation
- Collective bargaining negotiations
- Interventions to assist family or friends to encourage a loved one to seek help
- Outpatient mental health assessment and ongoing care for challenges with drugs, alcohol, and depression
- Domestic violence, anger management and parenting counseling and support services
MCMS helps those individuals with medical insurance or Medicaid and those who cannot afford services through the support of a grant. It also has a doctor on staff who administers an opiate-blocker medication to those with a heroin or prescription drug problem. MCMS recently received a grant to open a home for women involved in trafficking. Dr. Moore believes in taking her practice into the community to make a difference because, as she says, “Everyone knows someone who needs help.”
