Meet our Therapist and Yoga Teachers

Dear Clients and Prospective Clients,

At The Center for Self-Actualization, our mission is to assist members of the community in achieving emotional and behavioral wellness through yoga and counseling services for all ages and emotional challenges.  We strive to help you uncover your true potential and lead a life you love. While we cannot change difficult situations of the past, we can work together to better understand and resolve current challenges.  By applying positive, strength-oriented psychological theory and techniques, we will unearth long-standing behavior patterns or negative perceptions that may be holding you back from experiencing a more fulfilling and meaningful life.  We look forward to working with you to achieve your goals.

Our Mission

The mission of The Center for Self-Actualization, established in 2009 in Chicago’s southwest suburb of Evergreen Park, is three-fold.

First, we aspire to offer individualized counseling and yoga services toward the cognitive, emotional, and behavioral wellness of clients of all ages and abilities, regardless of their financial situation. We recognize and are encouraging of differing cultural values and seek to collaboratively establish and achieve the unique goals of every client we serve.

Second, we respect the professional and personal growth of each of our staff members and support them in their own journey toward self-actualization. We hold a client-first orientation while maintaining ethical boundaries to maximize the safety of and respect for our staff. We nurture a non-competitive environment where clinicians support each other via supervision, collaboration, and encouraged self-care.

Third, we strive to maintain the financial health of The Center for Self-Actualization while it simultaneously serves insurance, self-pay, sliding scale, and pro-bono clients.
