Individual, Sibling, and Family Counseling

(Counseling services currently available in Burr Ridge. Schaumburg services are coming soon!)

Individual, sibling, and family counseling services are now available for children, teens, and adults with high-functioning autism spectrum disorder or for families of those diagnosed with autism. This service is for individual clients and family members that need help addressing specific concerns or having difficulty adjusting to life changes.

Individual

Individual counseling is ideal for children, teens, and adults on the spectrum who are dealing with concerns that are best addressed in a one-on-one environment or for those clients who prefer this environment. Therapy can help clients by offering a safe place to be able to express themselves, learn effective ways of coping with negative thoughts and feelings, and foster confidence in their daily lives. Individuals diagnosed on the spectrum could also struggle with related issues such as:

  • Anxiety

  • Mood concerns, such as depression

  • Grief and loss

  • Feelings of loneliness and isolation

  • Fear of the future

  • Self-esteem issues

  • Relationship concerns

  • Stress

  • Social difficulties

  • Adjusting to transitions

  • School related issues, such as bullying and teasing

Our licensed therapists are ready to empower every client to be more confident in managing the difficulties they face in their lives.

Sibling

Sibling counseling is provided to family members who need assistance with adjusting to their sibling’s diagnosis, or other family concerns. We have extensive experience in helping siblings to be able to work through family changes that cause behavior, anxiety, and transition issues.

Family

Family counseling services help support and guide the whole family in navigating the autism diagnosis and challenging family interactions. The goal of family counseling is to guide and move families toward positive, nurturing individual, parent, and family dynamics.
