Thanks for your interest in working with a therapist at IntraSpectrum, and welcome to our online inquiry form. Your responses to the following questions will help us determine which of our therapists might be a good match for you. We will ask about your identities and experiences in an effort to provide intentionally affirming space for you at IntraSpectrum. With that in mind, please share as much or as little as you feel comfortable.

The inquiry form takes most folks about ten minutes to complete. For security purposes, your answers will not be saved and must be completed in one sitting. Once submitted, if you don’t hear from us within 48 hours please send us an email at intake@intraspectrum-chicago.com to make sure we’ve received your responses.

You are invited to complete this intake over the phone rather than online, if you prefer. Our intake phone number is 773.750.3505, and if we don’t pick up when you call, please leave a message so we can return your call as soon as possible. We look forward to meeting you and supporting you in reaching your therapeutic goals.

Lastly, please note that we’re not available at all times to respond to inquiries.  If you are in any immediate danger to yourself or others, please call 911.


    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.
