Counseling-Therapy for Addictions; Sex, Love, Drug

Proactive Behavioral Services in McHenry, Lake, Cook, and Kane counties, uses different strategies depending on the needs of our clients. These strategies include the following:


This focuses on the inherent strengths and skills that people already have, usingthem as building blocks for future success. It empowers people by drawing attention to the positives that already exist within and around them.

Fire Service Counseling

Life coaching can teach firefighters how to reach down deep in order to harness additional strength they often didn't even know they had. When one has a positive attitude, they can create and attract more positive experiences into their life.

Self-Esteem Enhancement

This is a type of motivation that works to make people feel good about themselves and to maintain self-esteem. It becomes especially prominent in situations of threat, failure, or blows to one's confidence.

Coping Skills

When helping clients deal with specific problems, professional counselors have found that focusing on coping skills (with or without remedial action) can often be helpful. The range of successful coping skills varies widely with the problems to be overcome.

Decision Making Skills

The prospect of taking on responsibility for your self-management may seem unsafe and frightening to you especially if you are unaccustomed to taking charge of your life. Training in assertiveness techniques, and goals identification could help build your confidence in such matters.

Behavioral Therapy

This is psychological treatment is based on the premise that emotional problems are learned responses to the environment, and that these maladaptive behaviors can be unlearned. Some examples of behavioral therapy techniques include systematic desensitization and operant conditioning.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

By helping you become aware of inaccurate or negative thinking, cognitive behavioral therapy allows you to view challenging situations more clearly and respond to them in a more effective way. While it can be a very helpful tool in treating mental illnesses such as anxiety or depression, this form of therapy can also be effective in teaching how to better manage stressful life situations.

Dialectic Behavioral Therapy

DBT aims to help people validate their emotions and behaviors, examine those behaviors and emotions that have a negative impact on their lives, and make a conscious effort to bring about positive changes. In validation, the patient sees that their behavior and responses are understandable in relation to their current life situation.


Mindfulness refers to being completely in touch with and aware of the present moment, as well as taking a non-evaluative and non-judgmental approach to your inner experience. The term comes from Eastern spiritual and religious traditions like Zen Buddhism. However, mental health professionals are beginning to recognize that mindfulness can have many benefits for people suffering from difficulties such as anxiety and depression.

Adlerian Therapy

Named after Alfred Adler, Adlerian theory primarily emphasizes birth order, individual life styles, social interests, and concepts pertaining to inferiority and superiority as principle components of personality. For Adler, psychological health is determined by the level of social contribution beneficial to the greater community. To the degree, that one integrates and furthers the social context, thus the measurement of his or her mental health. Social contribution is increased through the reduction of mistaken beliefs, which frequently lead to maladaptive feelings of inferiority or superiority.

Person-Centered (Rogerian) Therapy

Two primary goals of person-centered therapy are increased self-esteem and greater openness to experience. Some of the related changes that this form of therapy seeks to foster in clients include closer agreement between the client's idealized and actual selves; better self-understanding; lower levels of defensiveness, guilt, and insecurity; more positive and comfortable relationships with others; and an increased capacity to experience and express feelings as they occur.
