Tips for Finding Therapy in Your Area

  • Call your insurance company to get a list of providers that are covered in your area.
  • You may want to consult with your primary care physician who could make recommendations based on your needs.  
  • Locate providers using an online search or a website like the SAMHSA Treatment Locator
  • Research potential providers by checking their credentials or other information online. Search their name on the Illinois License Lookup or the equivalent in your state. 
  • Voice any concerns about payments to the provider. It may be possible for some providers to adjust pay rates under certain circumstances.
  • Ask questions. Before beginning therapy, feel free to ask about the therapist's training, theoretical background, or expertise in your area of concern. 
  • Shop around. It is OK to not feel comfortable with a certain therapist. If able, discuss your concerns with them and ask for a referral.

If you are experiencing a mental health crisis, come to Counseling Services during business hours. After business hours call Campus Safety (309.341.7979) or call 9-1-1. Click Crisis Sessions for more information.
