When your child/teen is struggling, you want strategies to combat challenges NOW. I am the founder of North Shore Family Services, where we empower kids and teens to learn tools, so they can succeed independently. Our goal is for children, teens, adults, parents, and couples to learn skills to be successful with school, peers, work, and family- longafter therapy ends. We assist with IEP and 504 plans to help our children/teen clients succeed where they spend most of their day- out of their parents' sight. Parents are our partners in helping kids and teens learn the life skills.

Often kids and teens do not realize how their actions affect others' thoughts, feelings, and reactions toward them. Using engaging, proven techniques, we provide tools to create better communication and relationship skills throughout life. We work with all ages who are struggling with stress, anxiety, depression, behavioral, and social issues.

We don't want families burdened with insurance paperwork. We give you an insurance verification form and submit all claims for reimbursement on your behalf, and are in-network for BCBS PPO and some HMOs. Our Deerfield, Skokie, Libertyville, and Park Ridge offices are minutes from 294, 94, and Metra.
