Finding the Right Therapist for you

Most people come into therapy because they are in a place of crisis, often pain, and therapy is their last resort. To let yourself be vulnerable with a stranger is hard, but overcoming stigma can make it even harder.

We see a strength and a fortitude in the person who walks over that threshold of fear and humility. It takes a hidden strength to ask for help and to allow yourself to be vulnerable. Asking for help is the first step in a journey that leads to a new destination and better outcome.

We find that when clients find a therapist whom they can trust, feel comfortable with, and feel a sense of hope in the therapist’s expertise, they become empowered to open up to see the possibilities of hope and change.

Look at our therapists’ profiles and reach out directly.

Or, call us at 773-310-3488 and we will assist you in connecting with one of our therapists.

You can achieve the change you seek.

I believe therapy is an outlet to discuss, explore, and change aspects of our lives that are causing distress. Everyone has the ability to cope with life changes, and therapy allows a supportive, no...

People are in a constant state of growth in reaction to daily life experiences, sometimes in a positive direction and sometimes in a negative one.  I became a mental health counselor because I am fascinated with how people navigate and control this process.  It is amazing to see the power of th...

My beliefs are that people hold the keys to their own healing and addressing of the trauma in their lives.  You have to be the driving force and navigator behind the pursuit of a healthy mind, body, and spirit.  The act of being not only heard but understood is healing in-and-of itself, however...

One of the biggest challenges when beginning therapy is the willingness to begin. However, once there, we will work together to be as honest and aware of what is happening to gradually shift narratives that perpetuate suffering. Therapy is not dependent on one life event or one aspect of a person...
