What is the treatment process like?

Scheduling an Appointment

If you would like to schedule an appointment, or if you have any questions, please call us at (224)723-5772.  Patient assistants will be happy to help you with scheduling, complimentary insurance verification, choosing the right therapist, and any questions you may have.



Intake Session


We begin with an intake session and diagnostic interview.  We explore what presenting issues you bring up.  Then we work together to create a treatment plan that is transparent and makes sense to you.  If necessary, we will also provide recommendations for psychological, neurological, or educational testing; or consultation with other providers (such as a psychiatrist or dietician) to gather more information.  Feel free to bring any previous testing reports, educational information, or legal documents that you believe would be important for us to consider.  We believe that working in collaboration with your team in important (such as other providers, doctors, teachers, dietician, etc.) so we may ask you sign a consent for release of information so we may speak with them.  However, we understand and can consider any reasons you may refuse this request.  We will end the first session by discussing the parameters of treatment; often we recommend starting with once a week sessions.
