Testimonials About Couples Counseling in Chicago

We did a lot of research looking for a practice that specializes in couples work only. It gave us comfort to know we were in the hands of a specialist. And we were glad we did.

We are very glad we had your guidance. We are doing very well. We have come a long way since we first went to see [our therapist]. We wanted to drop you a line to say: Thanks!

Our counselor is a dedicated professional, carefully preparing for each client meeting. She is highly intelligent, is an excellent listener and picks up on non verbal cues. She skillfully guides her clients to make positive behavioral changes. I have worked with several therapists and our counselor was the first to help me make genuine changes. Our relationship has improved significantly as a result of our work with her.
