About Optimum Joy

Welcome to Optimum Joy. When you need help the most, we are committed to supporting you through providing professional counseling services. We offer sessions for individuals, couples and families. It is a dedication of ours to help people from diverse backgrounds pursue self-awareness, personal development, and healthy, fulfilling relationships. Sometimes people feel stuck or don’t know how to move towards their dreams. Optimum Joy helps increase understanding of your personal challenges- so you can know and pursue your options for change! 

Each therapist on staff has specific specializations and experience in areas including: anxiety & depression, women’s and men’s unique issues, grief, abuse & trauma recovery, eating disorders, marriage and family therapy, substance misuse, and childhood trauma. When you call, our intake personnel listens and matches you with the therapist on staff most capable of meeting your unique needs.

Optimum Joy also offer counseling services combining quality care with faith sensitivity. Each therapist has experience and training in integrating Christian worldview into your care at the level you need. While we are committed to making Christian integration services available, we partner with clients from any background and walk of life. Bottom line: we know you are invested in your healing process, and we are glad to partner with you in a professional and culturally sensitive way.

“Mindfulness! Mindfulness! Mindfulness! I didn’t realize how tuned-out of my emotions I was. Alex helped me get back into listening to myself and practicing mindfulness. I literally use it all the time to ground me when I am feel anxious.”

“From the first phone call I knew I would be well taken care of. It took a lot for me to reach out. I have difficulty connecting, but I felt so welcomed and understood.”

“I think back on my life before- anxious, perfectionistic, judgemental- and I can’t believe it comes from the same person. I’ve come a long way. It feels good to be comfortable in my own skin and accepting of others around me.”

COVID-19 & BLM Response

Updated 3/25/2021

As our world and society pursues change, it comes with great grief, trauma, and loss. We need to support each other through the complexities of COVID-19, BLM, Asian Hate, and more. These are hard to shift. Our staff has been committed to diversity since it was founded in November 2016, and we'll continue to be committed to robust health that comes from different perspectives.

We accept BCBS PPO insurance as an in-network option for both in-person and telehealth services. The state of Illinois' executive order waiving cost-sharing on some plans extends through May 2021, and telehealth is an approved service through December 2021. We also offer sliding scale sessions through our clinical residents for those underinsured or without resources to pay out-of-network pricing to see our staff therapists.
