About Us

The Best Therapy Available, Accessible and Affordable for All

Cathedral Counseling Center offers affordable psychotherapy and psychiatric services to help people make sense of their lives during difficult times. Because everyone deserves to feel and be their best. 

Cathedral Counseling Center was founded in 1974 on the belief that mental health services should be excellent, affordable and available to anyone in need. Since then, we have helped more than 12,000 adults in the Chicago area manage mental health issues like mood disorders, trauma and grief.  Read an overview of our 2016 - 2018 strategic plan.

  • Care is offered without regard to income, religious affiliation, race, ethnicity, disability, gender or sexual orientation.
  • All clinicians are licensed professionals with extensive post-graduate clinical experience.
  • Fees are based on household finances.
  • Insurance may reduce the amount clients pay.

Cathedral clients receive private-practice quality care and pay affordable fees scaled to income. In addition to individual therapy and group therapy we offer couple therapy and premarital counseling. We also offer professional development programs that help clinicians enhance their skills and strengthen the quality of psychotherapy available in the metro area. 

We are able to offer sliding-scale fees thanks to generous support from donors and from our clinicians who provide services at reduced rates. All gifts are welcome and deeply appreciated.
