small-batch therapy

Artisan Clinical Associates is an intentionally small group of licensed counselors and psychologists based in Naperville, Illinois. Mental health is a journey – so our therapists do not just talk the talk, we have also walked the path ourselves. The result is an environment of safety, where you can say anything you need to. And of honesty, where real talk and transparency come first. And, most of all, of healing. Because this journey is worth the walking. And you needn’t walk alone.

what we do

Artisan clients are ordinary people living in the western suburbs of Chicago. We work with adults, and their children and adolescents. Our clients might be experiencing depression or a lack of motivation, or they may feel trapped by feelings of anxiety or stress. Or perhaps they’re simply tired of wearing a face every day that doesn’t reflect how they truly feel.

If you’re looking for a safe place to be honest about where you are and where you want to go, an Artisan therapist would love to meet with you. If you are ready to make an appointment you can do so by clicking here. If you would like to call to make an appointment or have a question for one of our therapists, we can be reached at (630) 923-6830.
