About Chicago Human Potential

Our Mission

Chicago Human Potential provides therapy for people who wish to make long-lasting and powerful changes in their lives and relationships. We offer safe, compassionate, and supportive counseling in an atmosphere that deepens understanding, promotes healing and releases potential. Unresolved emotional issues can block creativity, confidence, ambition and our ability for good relationships. Trauma and loss can cause sadness, depression and pain that inhibit and stifle.

Our style of therapy is empathic and respectful of personal values and lifestyle. We use interactive talk therapy and other beneficial techniques like Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). After the presenting problems are alleviated, profound change and personal growth are able to take place through understanding and healing of deeper underlying issues.
