COVID-19

 Semillas Counseling PLLC now offers telehealth sessions to clients as an alternative 

to an in-office visit,  which can enable you to connect with our clinicians 

while reducing the risk of exposure to COVID-19 or further illness.  


We're here to help.  Don't isolate.  Our therapists can support you as you navigate this unprecedented time.

  

Please continue to consult the Chicago Department of Public Health, the Cook County Health Department, or the Center for Disease Control (CDC) websites for updates and preventative measures so that you can care for yourself, your family, and help reduce the impact of COVID-19.

Relationship and Marriage Counseling In Chicago

Quality counseling services for couples, families, and individuals to repair, restore & revitalize their relationships. Marriage Counseling, River North Chicago

Cara Brigandi, Masters Level Counseling Intern

I strive to create a safe, therapeutic space tailored to meet your needs, challenges, and personal goals. 

As we work together, we collaboratively explore healthy awareness, self-compassion to enhance the overall quality of your life and relationships.  Respecting your pace, I utilize the therapeutic relationship to explore your resources and resiliency  to promote interpersonal strength, vitality and overall wellness.  


My approach utilizes supportive psychotherapy for individuals dealing with emotional trauma, unmet family needs, anxiety, depression and substance abuse recovery. With an interactive, integrative approach, your journey is one that is welcoming of all abilities, gender identities, sexualities, and cultures.


I believe that you, the individual, are an expert in your own life and that you have strengths and basic goodness which may occasionally not be seen but can once again be discovered.  I  strive to help you discover your dreams and goals once again.
