Chicago Individual Counseling for Adults

Our Approach to Individual Counseling

We are a group of counselors helping adults and young adults challenged with self-destructive behaviors. Here are some reasons you may want to work with us:


We are passionate about helping you create immediate and lasting change.

Our behavior change counselors help you find solutions that lead to the life you desire. Through our research-based methods you will get tools to help you transform your behavior starting from the very first session. Together we collaborate with you to find solutions that lead to relief from concerns such as problem drinking, emotional eating, and self-destructive behaviors.


We use data-driven strategies to help you get the life you desire.

We stay up to date on the latest research as it emerges in the areas of both human behavior and neuroscience. To create a plan tailored to your goals, we are referencing the most recent information and techniques as they relate to helping with the challenges of alcohol abuse and problematic behaviors.


We focus on possibilities, not labels.

We believe you are capable of achieving change. People who struggle with problem drinking are riddled with shame and worry about being labeled an alcoholic. There is nothing helpful about calling someone an "alcoholic". Your counselor will provide a judgement-free space and work closely with you towards the life you want.


We support the family system.

If you are worried about a loved one, we are here to provide support and guidance while you navigate the challenges of loving someone who is challenged with self-destructive behaviors. We are here to help you understand the "why" of your loved one's behavior while designing a path forward. We offer strategies that WORK for parents and significant others who are worried about people who struggle with addictions.

Here are some of the most common reasons adults choose to work with us.
