About Us (1).jpg

Our Practice


Grounded Healing is the result of continued experiences with, and observations of, psychological systems that do not work for most people. Our practice aims to challenge both those experiences, and the way our work affects us and our workplace. We believe shifting the way therapists experience their workplace allows us to intentionally engage with the community we serve. Through that community engagement and upholding social justice values, we can thoughtfully connect with those around us in and out of session.

Continuing to develop as an anti-racist and anti-oppressive group is a founding principle of this practice. As individuals, we focus on reflection and growth from experiences and observations of racism and oppression. As therapists, we maintain an active dialogue surrounding these issues by thoughtfully engaging in both relationships with one another, and therapeutic relationships through a trauma-informed lens. Additionally, building relationships with organizations that share these values is a priority.

  • Where are you located?
    We are located in the Pilsen neighborhood of Chicago. We are accessible via bus and train. There is free parking on surrounding streets.
  • How long are therapy sessions?
    Therapy sessions are typically 53-60 minutes. Sessions may be shorter or longer based on clinical need.
  • Do you offer virtual or in-person sessions?
    We offer both virtual and in-person sessions. In-person sessions are offered by select therapists. Please refer to our Therapist page for additional information on our therapists.
  • What if I don’t live in Illinois and would like to schedule virtually with one of your therapists?
    Some of our therapists have licenses in other states or are a part of PSYPACT, which extends licensure to other states. Please let us know where you reside during your consultation to be matched with a therapist that is licensed in your state.
  • Is my state a part of PSYPACT?
    Please visit the website at the button below to confirm that your state is a PSYPACT participating state.
  • What if I need to cancel my session?
    All sessions can be cancelled up to 24 hours before the scheduled session. If you cancel your session within 24 hours or do not show to your scheduled session, you will be charged the full fee of the session.
  • What if I am running late to my session?
    We understand things happen! Please be sure to reach out to your therapist to let them know when you anticipate arriving to your session. If you are not able to make it within the first 20 minutes of the session, your session will be cancelled and need to be rescheduled.
  • What if I don’t think my therapist is a good fit?
    We believe that not every therapist is a good fit for everyone. We encourage individuals to give therapy a few sessions to assess fit. If you believe your therapist is not a good fit, we encourage you to speak with your therapist about this. Your therapist can help you to find a therapist who might be a better fit.
  • How will I pay for my sessions?
    You will be asked to upload a credit card while completing the initial paperwork through the client portal. You can change this card at any time within the client portal. Cards will be run after claims have been processed by your insurance or after session if you are self-pay. We encourage you to be in contact with your therapist if changes need to be made.
  • Do you accept my health insurance?
    We are in-network with BCBS PPO, AETNA, and accept self-pay clients.
  • What if I would like to use Out of Network Benefits?
    If you have another insurance carrier and want to use out of network benefits, your therapist will provide you with a Superbill to submit to insurance for reimbursement. Please check with your insurance prior to starting therapy to confirm your out of network benefits.
  • What if I do not have health insurance?
    We know that not everyone has health insurance or can afford our full session fee. Each therapist holds a few spots for probono or sliding scale clients. These spots fill up quickly, so please let us know if you are interested in this option during your initial consultation. Below are some organizations we partner with that may be able to help pay for a limited number of sessions. Please see the links below to learn more and apply.
