How does teletherapy work? Join us this Friday 3/20 to find out! - Counseling & Therapy Services - The Juniper Center

NEW Teletherapy for remote counseling and therapy across Illinois.

Help when you need it. Right from your home.


Anxiety, stress, fear and uncertainty. These all can be exacerbated during a time of crisis, such as we are facing with the Coronavirus.

Government actions include Mental Health in the State of Emergency responses, specifically these new guidelines for telehealth: Notification of Enforcement Discretion for telehealth remote communications during the COVID-19 nationwide public health emergency.


We care about your health and the health of our staff. As a result, we are now offering a wide range of teletherapy services.


The Juniper Center has trained professionals available who can work with you through video conferencing for counseling and therapy. On our end, we use Zoom for Healthcare, a secure and private (and HIPAA compliant) platform. On your end, you can use your computer, tablet, smart phone or any device with a screen that allows you to access the internet.

See how it works (and learn a calming exercise you can use at home).

Please join me this Friday, March 20, from 10 am to 10:30 am to see how therapy works via video conferencing. I will lead you in a brief calming exercise that you can use at home, followed by a chance for you to ask questions about teletherapy.*

Please share this link with your friends and family, especially those who are alone, isolated or feeling worried. And feel free to share widely: We are licensed to provide teletherapy services across the state of Illinois.

This is new territory for everyone, and it is natural to feel on edge. This will be a chance to connect virtually with others in community, as people are spending more time at home.


Insurance questions.


Insurance companies are quickly adjusting to cover these telehealth services. We will work with you and check with your insurance company to make this therapy widely accessible.


How to schedule an appointment.

Call us at 847.759.9110, or use our web-based contact form.

We hope you will join us on Friday for the calming exercise and to ask questions about teletherapy.
