    My Services

    Individual counseling

    The act of going to counseling does not make you “crazy.” It takes a brave person to make the decision to make changes in life. Additionally, it takes a lot of courage to sit down and talk to a stranger for the first time about making these changes. Many people are nervous at their first visit, but by the end of their first session, they often feel better about their decision to seek therapy.

    Sessions are 45-50 minutes in length and held once a week unless your needs call for additional sessions. We offer day and evening appointments to accommodate all schedules.

    Virtual (online) Counseling

    Individual therapy is available online and has been proven to be as effective as in-person therapy. Sessions are available through an electronic health record (EHR) system called Simple Practice, which is secure, user-friendly, is similar to talking to someone on FaceTime, Zoom, Google Duo, or Google Meet.

    Therapy Rates

    The cost of individual therapy starts at $190

    Insurance and Payments

    We are in-network with:

    Blue Cross Blue Shield of Illinois PPO



    If you have insurance with another company, please call your insurance company to determine your out-of-network benefits and coverage.

    Payment is due at the time of service.   

    Consultation Appointment

    A consultation appointment is an opportunity for a therapist to learn more about the client’s presenting concerns and for the client to hear about the therapist’s approach or services that would be most helpful.

    You can schedule a consultation appointment via phone, email, or click get started to initiate counseling.
