Can I Work with a Modern Intimacy Therapist in Chicago?


Struggling with you mental health while trying to manage relationships and responsibilities in your day-to-day life can be exhausting. You deserve to heal and work through any obstacles keeping you from long-term and daily life fulfillment, healthy relationships, and self-defined success. Individual therapy provides the opportunity for one-on-one attention completely customized to get you to where you want to be personally and relationally.


What if your mental health and relationships feel off, but you’re not sure where to start to solve the problems? There is nothing wrong with starting from square one and seeking out mental health services to help you put the pieces of your life and relationships together. A therapist can serve as an objective, non-judgmental party who can help provide a sense of where to start with treatment and outline goals that can help you feel more secure. It might seem like we should be born experts on ourselves, but it’s okay to need help pushing back stuck points, while getting to know your authentic self in the process.


Finding the right therapist oftentimes comes down to specialization in the type of therapy an individual is seeking, however, the therapeutic relationship should feel like a good match as well. Counseling and therapy sessions can feel very exposing and vulnerable, so having a safe space where you feel secure and empowered to open up is crucial to the therapeutic approach.

Our therapists include licensed psychologists, licensed marriage and family therapists, licensed professional counselors, associate social workers, and certified sex therapists.
