Therapy Affordability Meter for Chicago, IL

Some budgeting needed

While counseling can certainly be an expense for individuals and families in Chicago, with proper budgeting, it is entirely do-able and the risk/reward is worth it. For some families, it may be difficult to sustain a commitment to therapy without proper insurance coverage. If this is you, ask your therapist about low cost options as practitoners in and around Chicago may have flexibility or sliding scales. Low cost counseling and affordable therapy are also sometimes offered by listed city and university level clinics, check with your local Chicago public health department.
