Getting Started in Therapy

Welcome to LifeWorks Psychotherapy Center.

We look forward to meeting you.

To get started, there is a variety of information we will need from you. To make this process a little easier, you may download, print, complete the forms below and bring them to your first appointment.

If you prefer to complete these forms in the office that is fine too. If you have any questions, feel free to call us (847-568-1100) or address them with your therapist when you meet. Please note that the HIPAA Notice of Privacy Practices requires no signature. It is a summary of the HIPAA act included for those who would like to understand more.

Insurance Accepted

We are a Blue Cross Blue Shield PPO, Blue Choice, NU Aetna Student Healthsm, and Medicare Provider. If you have other insurance, you will pay $130-190 per session and make claims to obtain reimbursement from your insurance company.

Supplemental Forms

In addition, at some point, your therapist may direct you to one of these downloadable forms. They are not required to get started.

Tell us how we can make your experience better.

We are always interested in understanding how we can improve! If you would like to share your feedback about our services, please take a moment to complete our Client Satisfaction Survey here.

Meet Our Intake Coordinator

I am Angel Ziegler, the Intake Coordinator here at LifeWorks Psychotherapy. I understand that taking that first step to finding a therapist can be a daunting one. That is why it is so important to me to make that first step as easy and gentle as possible.

As a therapist myself, I hope to offer a warm and inviting space to every person reaching out for care so that we may work together to find a therapist who will be a good fit for you.
