Coaching

Coaching is a creative partnership between a coach and client. Coaching sessions can focus on relationships, health and wellness, life skills, school, career, and more.

Community

We believe in the power of community engagement and stigma reduction.

 

Outreach events provide communities the opportunity to increase awareness of mental health and decrease the stigma of reaching out for help.

Consulting

Collaboration and consultation are interactive processes where individuals, who possess diverse skill sets, work as a team to identify a problem and find out its solution.

 

Clinical supervision is a requirement in Illinois for providing clinical mental health services.

Our Approach

We use a holistic approach to counseling, which encompasses all aspects of a person's life. Rather than treating just the symptoms, this approach looks deeper and tries to uncover underlying causes. This allows us to focus on the connections between mind, body, and spirit.

 

 

 

 

We are also dedicated to facilitating mental health treatment, education, and awareness while using an inclusive lens. While it is important to explore individual experiences, we also recognize the need to be aware of historical and current structural systems of inequality.
