A rainbow stretches across the sky, a seagull flies below.

Sex-positive therapists embrace the idea that consensual sexual activities are fundamentally healthy.

At LifeWorks, our sex-positive therapy is rooted in acceptance, understanding, and affirmation. We validate and honor your experiences, empowering you to embrace your authentic self, fostering healthy self-esteem, and cultivating a positive body image.

Our experienced therapists are ready to help.

LifeWorks therapists represent a diverse array of identities, experiences, and training. We are dedicated to helping you find a therapist that will align with your needs, and we are committed to connecting new clients to the right therapist quickly. On average, new clients meet with their therapist a week after first reaching out to our Intake Coordinator.

  • Need an individual therapist?
  • Need a couples or relationship therapist?
  • Don’t know what kind of therapist you need?

Our Intake Coordinators, Becca McCormic, MA and Angel Ziegler, LMFT, are available Monday through Friday to help match you to a therapist who can help. Contact us today to get started.

At Lifeworks we are committed to healing: to healing people, communities and the earth from violence and all forms of social injustice. In our mission, we acknowledge that the community in which we serve sits on the colonized land of the Anishinaabe Alliance of the Ojibwe, Odawa, and Potawami, often referred to as the Council of Three Fires. 

We acknowledge that the spirits of the original people pass through us on our city streets and the healing wisdom traditions of the indigenous people are part of our human heritage- which we honor. As such, we make every attempt to recognize the deep wounds and atrocities committed against the original people of this land.

We're here to help.

At LifeWorks, we can provide a combination of support, understanding and therapy to help you. Call us at (847) 568-1100 today to talk someone about your experience. Or, contact us today to request an appointment:
