Thank you for considering Second City Counseling Services (SCCS) to address your relationship needs. Sessions are offered via telehealth, which we’ve been utilizing for over five years now.

We are not accepting new clients at this time, except for couples seeking Marathon Couples Therapy. You can read more about that here.

Please be aware that not all couples are appropriate or ready for the deep work involved in couples counseling. In such cases, we may recommend other options, including, but not limited to: pursuing individual therapy; completing a treatment program like drug/alcohol rehab, anger management, interpersonal violence programming; or, attending our workshop, The Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work.

Contact Info:  Email is the best way to reach us. We typically respond to messages within 1-2 business days.
