Therapists serving clients in Illinois

Chicago. The windy city is home to hot dogs, the Willis/Sears Tower, and a whole assortment of historical sites. Sometimes, wind can be the perfect representation of your mental health. When it blows the right way, it pushes you towards your goal. When it blows the wrong way, it’s chilly and it can hold you back. 

A counselor can control your wind and make sure you’re blowing in the right direction. Speak to one today and see where you can blow to.
