Therapy & Counseling

Each year, hundreds of families, couples, children & adolescents, and individuals take the important first step of changing their lives by making a call to The Family Institute.

We provide comprehensive counseling and therapy services at four locations across the Chicago metropolitan area. We also provide high quality, affordable care for low-income and uninsured families.

We tailor our treatment specific to the issues and problems our clients present. Our services include diagnostic assessment, psychological testing and consultation, as well as individual, group, couple and family therapy. We offer a wide range of specialized treatments including behavioral, systemic and psychodynamic approaches. Whatever the treatment modality, we look at and treat the whole person in a safe and supportive environment.

We believe that people's psychological conditions cannot be understood or treated in isolation from their families, and the context of a family, in its many forms, is the single most important factor influencing human identity. Our definition of "family" takes many diverse forms, and is not limited by the boundaries of biology, intentionality and/or law.

As a Family Institute client, you can expect personal and prompt attention, clinical excellence, professional discretion and confidentiality from any member of our nationally renowned, expert team of licensed therapists. When multiple treatments are required to address the problem, we offer coordinated care by an entire treatment team.

Accessing resources and reaching out for information and support is the first step towards change.  If our philosophy and the types of services we offer match your ideas about therapy, we encourage you to contact us.  Help is a phone call away.
