getting started

You can reach us by email (hello@perennialcounseling.co) or phone (773-658-9272) and we do our best to respond within 24-48 hours about our availability. You can also take a look at our therapist bios and see if you think one of us may be a good fit - feel free to contact any therapist directly. It's helpful to know how you heard about us, your availability (time of day/days of week), and what (if any) insurance you have. If we can't fit you in, we will make sure to get you a good referral. 


first session

Before your first session, your therapist will send you a bit of paperwork to fill out. Come to our office at 1803 N California - there is abundant free street parking along California. Your therapist will give you the code to come in the front door. Make yourself at home in the waiting area and help yourself to coffee or tea. Your therapist will come out to get you when it's time to meet. Sessions are generally 45-60 minutes in length.


fees

You have the option to self-pay or to use your insurance. If you choose to use insurance, we will give you a document that walks you through how to educate yourself regarding your mental health insurance benefits. We are in-network providers for Blue Cross / Blue Shield PPO and United Behavioral Health. If we are out-of-network for your insurance company, we are happy to provide you with a statement so that you can ask them to reimburse you for some of your cost. For self pay clients, our full fee per session is $140. We are glad to offer sliding scale services to clients in need.
