Mental health services
Individual psychotherapy can provide support and insight to help you navigate the challenges of everyday life. If you have been experiencing difficulties in relationships, pervasive feelings of sadness, anxiety, panic, or hopelessness, difficulty controlling your anger, unresolved past trauma, parenting issues, grief or loss, or substance abuse, we would recommend that you consult with a licensed mental health professional. Our caring therapists are thoroughly experienced and licensed at the highest available level in Illinois.
Do you feel distant from your partner? Have you experienced an increase in arguing, anger, or hostility? Have you lost the playful dynamic you once shared? Perhaps you have learned to mitigate conflict through mutual avoidance or apathy. You might have difficulty trusting each other and, in some cases, might suspect infidelity. A skilled couples therapist can help you to have the difficult conversations you and your partner have been unable to have productively on your own. Learn more about couples counseling.
In group counseling, participants are given a place in which to connect with others who are facing similar issues and concerns — often in a more affordable setting than one-on-one therapy. Members can develop communication skills and self-awareness while also fostering mutual support and understanding. Coming together as a group provides opportunities to receive and give encouragement for each participant. Talking and sharing can help make people feel less alone and create a sanctuary for growth.

Anger is a basic emotion that helps us know when something is wrong, when something has hurt us, or when something threatens our safety.
The causes of anxiety may be conscious or unconscious. Your experience might include distractedness, confusion, trouble thinking, anticipated rejection or abandonment, a sense of being lost, overwhelmed, or engulfed, and intense panic.
Couples therapy is a type of psychotherapy in which a psychotherapist helps partners in a romantic relationship gain insight into underlying tensions, conflicts or frustrations in order to resolve problems and improve overall relationship satisfaction.

When you are experiencing depression symptoms, it is your mind’s attempt to cope with challenges in your life.

When we lose something, we often feel a sense of hurt. Hurt lets us know that what we lost was meaningful or important. Although the hurt can fade with time, sometimes loss leaves us feeling empty or broken. These feelings of grief can keep us from living the life we want or need.
Group psychotherapy involves several patients gathering together with a therapist to talk, support one another, and share a common experience in a safe setting. There is a lot of potential for emotional healing in mental health group therapy. Not only do you receive skilled guidance, but also personal encouragement and connection with others who are in similar situations.
Although sexual orientation or gender identity might not be a source of distress, many people do find that the social stigma of living as a minority can increase stress, worry, and trauma responses. The internalization of fear and negative judgment can amplify and reinforce external social pressures, creating intense suffering.
Henry Ward Beecher once said that “we never know the love of a parent till we become parents ourselves.” Parents give everything to their families, and yet sometimes there is struggle and turmoil.
When your relationship is getting serious, and it seems like marriage is on the horizon, it is to be expected that you and your partner will experience tensions, and perhaps some new problems, which should be addressed before embarking on your life together.
When we are physically harmed, our bodies go through a process of repair and restructuring. Bones fuse back together, cuts coagulate and scab, and bruises swell. Although our bodies are quite good at healing themselves over time, some injuries tend to endure.
