COVID-19 & BLM Response
COVID-19 has impacted all of our lives. Plus George Floyd’s death highlighted that spaces for grieving and work needs to be done around racism and the BLM movement. Our staff is committed to diversity and health. We are here to support growth and change! Starting June 18th we are resuming in-person sessions, as well as maintaining virtual Telehealth to suit individual needs. New clients welcome! Many insurance plans approved Telehealth through June 2020 in Illinois, and most likely through the entire calendar year. We accept BCBS PPO insurance. We also offer sliding scale sessions through our clinical residents for those without resources.
