Family Counseling and Therapy - Cutting Edge Therapy Northbrook.jpg

Cutting Edge Counseling

of the North Shore

Children. Teens. Adults. Families. Couples.

Our Approach

We offer therapy to children, teens, adults and families and couples.  We work with parents as part of a team so that children can continue to feel supported at home.  We work closely with our patient's schools and healthcare professionals so that we can provide the highest quality of care in and out of the office. 


Children often have fears, anxieties and phobias that can make early development difficult.  We provide counseling and therapy that can address these issues.


When society teaches teens that they are “not enough,” they sometimes seek to address that pain with dysfunctional behaviors.  We can help them through the rough times.


We have an under-treated and ever growing epidemic in our society, and we are not talking about COVID-19.  Depression and anxiety are out of control among adults.  We can help.


We believe in keeping family and other providers involved in treatment, if given permission by the patient and family members.  We also provide counseling to entire families through our family cohesion services.


Staying together takes work.  But sometimes, couples don't know exactly what to work on.  We help couples break through communication and relationship barriers so they can have a healthy and happy partnership.
