Welcome to our online intake and congratulations on taking a step towards starting therapy. Our director of intake is available to answer questions you have at any point. Please share any and all information you’d like for us to know. Your answers will allow us to make sure you get support from a therapist that best fits your needs. Also check out the groups we have available, as they are often an excellent complement to client’s individual, couples, or family therapy.
Aside from the first page, all questions are optional. The full process takes about 10 minutes. For security purposes, your answers will not be saved and must be submitted in one sitting. Once submitted, if you don’t hear from us within 48 hours please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org to make sure we’ve received your intake. We’ve been experiencing technical issues with intake submissions lately.
You are invited to complete this intake over the phone rather than online, if you prefer. To speak with our director of intake call 773-750-3505. We look forward to meeting you and supporting you in reaching your therapeutic goals.
IntraSpectrum literally means “the spectrum within” – IntraSpectrum counselors serve as guides and companions in the process of exploring with our clients their unique internal spectrum of identities, thoughts, feelings and desires. In our work together, we endeavor to help you become more you.
Presence Mindfulness Group
Thurs 5:30-6:30pm; Open sit begins 5:15pm
Meditation is a powerful practice that helps one absorb the full benefits of therapy. Learn to relax, focus, and address your mental health struggles through body-based meditation in a queer-friendly, supportive group setting.
Each month we will apply body-based meditation techniques to mental health themes such as anxiety, depression, trauma, etc.. Sign up as little or as many months in the series as you'd like.
Gender Experience Group
Thurs 6:30-7:45pm; Sat 11am-12:15pm
Our GEG provides a sense of community in a safe space wherein clients may openly explore their gender identity and express themselves in ways their current lives may not allow. The group is open to people with all gender identities and expressions who are curios about exploring their experience of their gender identity and expression with others.
LGBTQI-Affirming Men’s Group
This process group focuses on learning how to give and receive genuine and constructive feedback. Learn how you are being perceived by others, and learn how to share your perceptions of others to others as well. See how different ways of communicating can promote or hinder meaningful relationships.
