Experienced Therapists Counseling People through Active Partnerships
Free Initial Phone Consultation
Deciding to enter therapy is a significant life choice. When someone is feeling sad, anxious, confused or uncertain about his or her relationships, career or life, it is often helpful to explore the process of change by meeting with a professional therapist.
If you live or work in the Chicago area take advantage of a free 15 minute phone consultation with one of our therapists.
The 15 minute phone consultation is neither counseling nor psychotherapy. It is an opportunity for you to talk with a highly experienced therapist and decide if entering therapy is a good choice for you.
Selecting a therapist
Make sure that any therapist you are considering is licensed by the state of Illinois as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) or a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor (LCPC). Assess how comfortable you feel with him or her, if the therapist listens well, seems to understand your concerns and is able to describe a course of action that would help you create change. Studies have shown that it takes at least 10,000 hours of experience for most professionals to achieve significant mastery in their profession, so it may be most beneficial for you to work with a therapist whose background includes a minimum of 5 years of postgraduate therapy experience.
