All About Therapy
Perhaps you're down or anxious - maybe you're unsure about the future of a relationship, or just feel that you aren't living the life you were meant to lead. Whatever your needs may be, we are here to offer support. Therapy is a process of growth and self-discovery, and in our sessions we promote behavioral transformation by encouraging a positive outlook and the adoption of new attitudes and reactions.
Our general approach to therapy is to view each individual with no judgments or preconceptions; whatever you want to focus on will be our focus as well. At the end of the day, we want you to leave our sessions having either added more tools to your tool belt or having strengthened the tools that you are already using. We primarily approach therapy with a “Person-Centered” orientation; we understand that you are the expert on yourself, and we are only there to provide context, to facilitate your growth, and to help you overcome or manage any obstacles you may be facing. Our specific interventions depend on what we may be working on at the time, and may draw from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness based therapies, Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Reality Therapy, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). Some of our specialty areas with our clients are cultivating healthy and strong relationships (romantic, family, friends), couples, grief, trauma, anxiety, low self-esteem, career counseling, and others.
We are In-Network with Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Illinois, AETNA, CIGNA and United Health Care. We accept traditional BCBS PPO insurance, as well as the BCBS "Bluechoice" PPO (Marketplace/"Obamacare") policies. If you are unsure about your specific coverage, feel free to reach out; for most policies, we can easily check on your coverage and let you know before scheduling the first appointment.
