Help me find cheap/free mental health care in Cleveland, Ohio.

I am unemployed, and (thankfully) was able to get onto a government-assisted program through MetroHealth in which all of my medical expenses are being paid. I am having personal/family issues and am in desperate need of quality talk therapy, but the counselor I just visited was awful.

Question one: Does anyone happen to know the names of any helpful therapists through Metrohealth? That is probably the best option as it would be totally free. I just had an appointment with one - easily the worst psychologist I've ever been to. He honest-to-god fell asleep during our first session. I should have been upset but couldn't stop laughing, it could have been a scene from a movie. I've already registered a complaint, so no need for advice on this point.
Question two: If not, does anyone know of any reduced price/free counseling available anywhere in the Cleveland area? I'd be willing to drive, let's say, 20 miles (I'm close to Westlake).
Any other related advice would be helpful. If nothing works out, I'll probably just ask a question on the green - but as good as you guys are, I know that it's no substitute for quality talk therapy.
