Services

Lakefront Counseling Group offers expert counseling for a wide-variety of services, suited to the needs of our Chicago and Evanston/North Shore communities. We provide a safe place to talk about your challenges and create a plan for you to succeed.

We are a client-centric practice first and foremost. Our clients appreciate this with every appointment!

We know the decision to start therapy can be a difficult one. We want to make that transition comfortable and smooth.

How do I begin therapy?

  • Call or text us at 847.942.2006, or email us at rhoward@lakefrontcounselinggroup.com.
  • Check your insurance coverage by calling the member number on the back of your insurance card.  We are in-network for Blue Cross Blue Shield PPO, Humana and other insurances; otherwise many insurances provide out-of-network benefits.
  • Setup an initial appointment.
  • Print your intake forms.  Click here to download intake forms
  • Come to your first session. Bring your completed intake packet and insurance card
  • If you do not want to use your insurance, we accept cash, check and credit cards.

What will my first session be like?

Meet your therapist and discuss what brought you in for counseling and your goals. The initial session is where we get to know you and you get a feel for who we are as a therapist. By the end of the session, we will talk to you about our fit as a therapist, provide you with some actionable goals, and schedule a second appointment to start treatment!

Counseling Services

Adults

Adult counseling is a safe place to explore aspects of life that may not be working well. By creating a collaborative relationship, we explore challenges, gain a deeper understanding of what drives them and provide tools to make positive and lasting life changes.

Couples

Couples come into counseling for many reasons, like ineffective communication, infidelity, detachment, loneliness and separation and divorce. We are Gottman trained therapists with expertise in teaching couples how to connect, improve communication, reawaken intimacy and rebuild trust.

Teen & Family

Raising teenagers can be tough, and sometimes they present with challenges which require intervention. We collaborate with parents to address anxiety, depression, disrespect or lack of motivation. And we also work with teens themselves on how to better understand their issues and manage their fluctuating moods.

Groups

Sometimes individual issues are best addressed within the context of a group of peers who can relate to your experiences and goals. Group counseling provides a unique opportunity to work with others who have similar challenges.

Other Services

Coaching & Consultation

We offer professional development (executive coaching, training, consulting) and personal growth (counseling, speaking and seminars) programs. We are available to work with you as an individual or a workplace group.

Tele-Health

We offer teletherapy for clients who don’t want to (or can’t) come into the office due to distance, health, childcare or busy schedules. We use a convenient, secure, HIPAA compliant platform to provide online counseling services. All you need is a computer with a camera and mic and internet access.

Supervision

It is wise to invest in your professional development. We have many years of experience providing clinical supervision to students, both graduate and post graduate and to licensed clinical social workers and psychologists. We are also available for professional consultation.

Presentations

We provide speeches, presentations and workshops ranging from continuing legal education for law firms to parent & teacher education in school settings. Recent presentations include: Motivational Interviewing, Social & Emotional Learning in Schools, Parent Training and workplace presentations. Ask us if you would like a customized presentation.
