Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor

495 N. Riverside Dr., Ste 208, Gurnee, Illinois 60031 | 224-208-5228

Why is it so hard to find a good therapist? Finding a therapist that has similar beliefs and values as you can be disheartening. I am a therapist who is also a Christian. I specialize in working with youth ages 3-25 who have experienced something stressful like a divorce, bullying, self-harm or abuse. I also work with adult relationships, and grief and loss. I practice from my values and beliefs, but use my knowledge of human behaviors to help families and youth. Spiritual components are mainly client-directed. Don't hesitate to call today to see if we are a good match!

I am a Christian and fully-devoted follower of Jesus Christ, and have been for over 34 years. If you are looking for someone who has studied the Bible for years, has read hundreds of Christian books and has a tremendously high level of passion to help others find God, ask tough questions about God, or is just searching spiritually and wants to understand Christianity at a deeper level, it would be my privilege to meet with you. I have personally helped dozens of people come into a personal relationship with Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. I am a Christian counselor, and I also enjoy counseling people who are spiritual 'seekers' and are simply curious about the things of God.

I believe we are wired physically, emotionally, and spiritually. I believe God desires to bring healing to our hurts and pains by the Holy Spirit. I work with clients spiritually based on their desire to incorporate spirituality. I will expose christianity bu not impose it. My hope l would be for them to see God as a tender loving God not a judgmental one.

While most Christian Counselors pride themselves on how many Scriptural passages they can recite and how many links they can make from the Bible to psychological disorders, the Christian-centric work of Grey Matters International, Inc.is grounded in one principle: truth. For us, the work is more about truth and transparency of Christ's message and working on the natural laws of accountability and decision making that evolves from that. If one honors God's natural laws of reaping and sowing around the decisions one makes, one is indeed living Scripture to its fullest. We prepare the brain to better maximize the spiritual realities of Christ's words. Contact kevin@kevinflemingphd.com.

600 Dakota St., Crystal Lake, Illinois 60012 | 815-276-3947

Originally in training as a pastor, I sought to understand how the truth in God's Word affects mental health and contributes to healthy relationships. The wisdom in the Bible needs to be mined. But Christian counseling is not merely wisdom, it is knowing Christ. It is something real, an interaction that has to be experienced. The Bible gives us the guidance we need.

Clinical Psychologist

806 Ridge Terrace, Evanston, Illinois 60201 | 847-328-5022

As a practicing Jew I am able to offer counseling services that will align with the practice of Judaism. I am quite aware of the needs of the Orthodox community and of the importance of the concept of shalom bayis. I will help you restore that feeling through the use of standard counseling techniques. This is best done in an office situation, although it can begin online or via the telephone.

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

600 Spring Hill Ring Rd, West Dundee, Illinois 60118 | 847-612-4309

As a Christian I have seen first hand how God and his principles provide transformation and redemption in my life and in others' lives. In my practice, I utilize a Grace-based, Biblical approach as I believe Jesus provides true change and freedom. Often, it is our inadequate understanding of how God views us that leads to problems of poor self- worth, anxiety and depression. Many times, we can get caught up with "doing" for God rather than "abiding in Him". In our work together we will explore your relationship with God and identify how to strengthen it as well as how to apply Biblical truths to experience true freedom and healing.

I am a Christian, and I am very comfortable sharing that information with others. Although I may not agree with the specific beliefs of a particular form of Christianity, I do not believe that it is appropriate for me to judge, and I am accepting of differences. I am able to discuss the impact of our beliefs on our behavior; I am also able to encourage the use of our beliefs as a form of support.
