My counselor was awesome! I was struggling with some serious work-related anxiety, and she helped me work through it. I am in a much better place now. I really wish I had reached out to a counselor earlier!!!
Calling and getting connected with a counselor was easy, and the zoom sessions were really convenient. My counselor was also very helpful.
I appreciate the professionalism, extensive knowledge, and helpful approach the counselor had toward me and my problem.

If you've asked the question, this is likely the right time in your life to start therapy or counseling. Therapy has been proven to be an effective tool in coping with and improving one’s quality of life. Therapy is a collaborative process between the client and therapist. Most people find the support and guidance of counseling helps them feel better and better cope personally and professionally.
We understand that making the decision to seek help and get counseling is also a financial one. Our counselors are on many insurance provider panels and will work with you in order to make the best use of your insurance benefits so that your counseling is more affordable.
Perspectives has a dedicated team of specialists on staff that will assist you with accessing and understanding your benefits, and obtaining authorization for services (if required), or self-pay if you so choose.
Perspectives rates range from $60 - $200 per session depending on your insurance plan. EAP services are covered at 100% by your employer. Co-payments are collected after each session. We accept all major credit cards, HSA and FSA cards as well as cash and check payments.
Our sessions are by appointment only so we are flexible in scheduling them at times convenient for you. Our counselors are available in the morning, midday, evenings, and weekends. Appointments are set up within 48 hours of your first call.
Sessions are typically 45 to 60 minutes long.
Since we work with you to personalize your therapy, the length of your time with us will depend on the issue(s) and goals established by you and your counselor during the course of your counseling.
You can address any number of problems or concerns. Some of the issues that people come to Perspectives for help with include:
- Adolescent Issues
- Anger Management
- Anxiety and Depression
- Family and Parenting Issues
- Grief & Loss
- Life Transitions
- Living With and Recovery From Addictions
- Stress Management
- Substance Abuse
We know that asking for help can be difficult but making that first call is important so when you contact us at 866-296-5262 a Perspectives Intake Coordinator will help guide you through the process, and answer any questions you may have.
Therapy is a powerful tool for change and healing. It helps you face and navigate issues that may be negatively impacting your life. The true value of therapy is having an experienced and caring professional in your corner, helping you move forward.
The Intake Coordinator will gather your basic information, help you with any insurance questions, and set up an appointment with a Perspectives therapist via telehealth or at one of our seven convenient Chicagoland locations.
From the very first counseling session, your therapist will work with you to develop a plan, set goals, and learn strategies for working through your problems and concerns. All of our therapists strive to help you live happy and productive lives personally, professionally, spiritually, and beyond.
