Helping Everyone Reach Their Full Potential


About Our Company

Foundations Counseling. LLC in Chicago, Illinois was founded in 2017. We provide counseling and therapy services to treat a wide range of issues affecting an individual.

Our staff is made up of a culturally and ethnically diverse group of Master’s level therapists. They assess adults, adolescents, and children dealing with day-to-day or periodical struggles and treat them according to their present symptoms. They provide individualized care based on the needs and goals of each client. While we operate from a Christian perspective, we are deeply respectful and sensitive to varying beliefs.

All our therapists have experience and expertise in working with a wide variety of clinical settings. They incorporate evidence-based, cutting-edge tools into their work. Generally, they are trained and expert in dealing with loneliness, anxiety, grief, depression, life transitions, relationship concerns, and loss.

We are operating in Illinois and its suburban communities. Our company serves as a valuable resource to communities throughout the area.
