Our Therapists

Therapists in Plainfield, IL

At Client-Centered Counseling Associates, our counseling services involve creating a therapeutic environment that is conducive to emotional healing. The relationships we have with our clients allows us to truly understand and accept each person as they are without judgment. Our goal at C-CCA is to meet clients where they are in their life process and to collaborate with them in order to help them navigate and find solutions together.

We practice from what is called a Client-Centered or Person-Centered approach. We believe that each person has within him/herself vast resources for self-understanding, self-development and personal growth. Each person has the capacity to alter self-concepts, basic attitudes and self-directed behaviors.

Every person is unique. The focus of therapy and counseling services we promote is less about diagnostic label and more about understanding each unique person.
