Depression Counseling in Barrington, IL

Depression is a mental health illness that affects millions of Americans each year. In our counseling center, we help people from all walks of life as they struggle to navigate the symptoms of depression.

Our goal is always to help our clients reach a greater level of wellness and being. If you’re ready to get a handle on your depression, schedule a meet and greet with one of our counselors today.

Trauma Recovery in Barrington, IL

According to the American Psychological Association, trauma is described as the emotional response a person has to an “extremely negative experience”. This might include an abusive relationship, a severe illness, the death of a loved one, a divorce, or something from your childhood. No matter the cause of your trauma, the result is often the same: crippling anxiety, depression, and more.

Our counselors are here to support you in your recovery from trauma. We recognize that the results of trauma are more similar to a brain injury than an illness and we have the tools to help you find relief.
