Located in the western suburbs of Chicago, The Institute for Stress Control is a private practice that provides comprehensive psychological services to children, adolescents, adults, and couples.

We welcome you to our office and appreciate the opportunity to be of assistance to you. The information on our website is designed to give you a sense of who we are and how we work. We want you to know about our general office policies and methods of practice so that we can better serve you.

Josie is a regular presence at our office. Whether she greets clients in the waiting room or participates in sessions, Josie loves interacting with people. Josie’s training and disposition enable her to support clients to calm themselves and to pay attention to the sensitivities of others. Josie understands that not everyone loves dogs as much as we do. If you or your child are one of those people, please notify us. Josie will be happy to schedule other activities for that hour.
