Center Focused Therapy (CFT) was established in 2016 as a boutique psychotherapy practice, providing therapeutic services to the Chicagoland community. At its foundation, CFT’s values were centered on our therapists providing the highest level of intentional, compassionate and informed treatment to our clients. Since its inception, CFT has grown in many ways.


Through bringing on new therapists whom align with CFT’s values/mission and providing additional services (i.e., providing consultation within the community and training options for immerging clinicians) CFT has committed to allowing its values to grow across different domains of mental health care.  Although CFT continues to expand, our values remain the same. Our clinicians value diversity, value providing the highest level of care in all domains of our work, and value the strong community we have established at CFT. If what CFT represents appeals to you, reach out to us; we would love to hear from you.


An important question to ask. Most of us find it difficult to ask others for help, especially when it feels like a very personal and sensitive issue or we’re simply used to taking care of problems on our own. That said, we are rarely able to overcome all that life confronts us with by ourselves.

Whether you’re feeling down or overly stressed, struggling to get through major life events and transitions, finding it difficult to cope with the world you live in, or are facing specific mental health issues, therapy has been scientifically shown to be extremely effective at improving mood and overall functioning.


Another great question! Our staff at CFT are not only skilled and highly trained in the techniques of psychotherapy but seek to both support and challenge you while recognizing the reality of your life. Although the mental health field can easily lead people to see themselves as in some way “broken,” more often than not the emotions we feel and the ways we find ourselves behaving are very natural reactions to what life has confronted us with. We, therefore, believe that therapy should provide you not just general improvement and better ways of coping, but also a broader understanding of the issues you’re dealing with so that you are better able to address underlying concerns that may be driving how you feel, both now and in the future.

All CFT therapists prize, value and are experts in providing multiculturally sensitive services.  Our clinicians believe it is vital to understand and treat all of you and not just one part. In doing so, we have found that the benefits of treatment are substantially more apparent and long-lasting.


If you’re unsure of whether therapy or CFT is right for you or is likely to help you bring about the changes you’re seeking, please give us a call. We offer a free phone consultation as a means of helping you better understand how therapy might be helpful to you, as well as to ensure we match you with the therapist you are likely to work best with. We look forward to hearing from you.
