Individual Therapy

We work with you in individual therapy to identify your goals for treatment. We use an evidence-based approach to help you move closer to the life you would like to live and see a path to get there.

Group Therapy & Skills Training

There is power in numbers. In group therapy and skills training, you can explore issues, learn coping skills, and gain perspective with others who can relate.

Psychological Testing

We provide psychological testing for children, adolescents, and adults, including cognitive assessments, learning disorder assessments,
and many more.

Nutritional Counseling

Our nutritional counseling embraces a philosophy of balance, variety, and moderation to guide people from fear-based food choices to freedom-based food choices.

Consultation & Training

Ongoing learning and diverse perspectives provide the best opportunity for therapists to grow personally and professionally. 

 

Our Team

Our therapists are among the most experienced and highly trained in the Chicagoland area, with expertise in many areas of treatment. More importantly, we combine that expertise with a mission to be an empathetic, non-judgmental partner to you on your path—wherever it may lead.

We work with you to develop skills to cope, gain higher levels of self-understanding, and take steps toward the life you want. It is within your reach.
