Allied Behavioral Health Services, Incorporated was established in North Olmsted, Ohio in February 2001 by Matthew Capezzuto. His vision was clear: Provide the best possible, most comprehensive, compassionate, and confidential care to those in need. His approach was simple: Be available to consumers in ways that ease initiation of and foster personal growth in the therapeutic process. This is accomplished by offering a different approach to services than the current industry standard encourages. When consumers call the office to initiate services, they can be assured that their difficulties are important and urgent no matter what they may be. Insurance is accepted and sliding fees are offered to ensure that consumers can be accommodated in their search for personal balance and relief from symptoms interfering with healthy functioning. This approach has resulted in rapid growth of the agency since its introduction.

In May of 2003, we opened the Austintown, Ohio location. Allied Behavioral Health Services, Incorporated’s Austintown staff brings this same philosophy to the Youngstown area. To date, this location is prospering by continuously providing compassionate and confidential care.

The addition of Sarah Kauffman-Capezzuto to the agency in 2008 resulted in organizational change that modernized both its operations and process flows. This prepared Allied Behavioral Health Services to better serve its respective communities. Sarah brought to the organization twenty-plus years of operations and financial management experience, and a proven track record of producing outcomes-driven results. As the Chief Operations Officer, Sarah continues to find innovative ways to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of service delivery.

In 2009, Allied Behavioral Health Services, Incorporated teamed with Zeck and Associates to create our third location in Lorain, Ohio. This location operates under the same philosophies which have been the basis for successful outcomes for our clients.

We opened our Willoughby Hills location in the fall of 2013. Our clinical staff members at this location specialize in Bariatric assessment.

The staff of Allied Behavioral Health Services, Incorporated is committed to carrying out the mission and vision of the agency for the Greater Cleveland, Lorain, and Youngstown area populations. Our practitioners are well trained and experienced in various disciplines of behavioral health.


Allied Behavioral Health Services, Incorporated is committed to providing high quality, compassionate, confidential, easily accessible, and cost efficient care. We provide consummate, ethical, and professional behavioral health services in a conscientious manner to a broad range of consumers. Our commitment to this mission is proven by our high level of professional conduct and measured by our willingness to extend ourselves beyond convention to those in need.
