We all go through difficult times ~ in our home life or workplace, as a parent or partner, or when despair, trauma, anger or grief feels overwhelming. At the Samaritan Counseling Center of the Northwest Suburbs, professional counselors help individuals, couples and families achieve emotional, mental and spiritual well-being through psychotherapy, behavior modification, mediation and educational programs. We recognize the tremendous role faith can play in healing, and honor your spiritual journey. We also recognize that spirituality is not part of everyone’s life, and do not promote any religious perspective on those who come for help.

The Samaritan Counseling Center of the Northwest Suburbs is a safe place for everyone, no matter who you are, or where you are on life’s journey.


The staff is available by appointment to discuss our counseling services and get you started with a counselor. Contact our ​Intake Coordinator, Brian McCallum,  at 847-382-4673 x​322 who will gather information about you in order to assign you to a counselor who meets your needs and schedule.

Brian will ask you for the following information during your initial phone call:

✱ Your name, date of birth, address, and phone number

✱ Your reasons for seeking counseling – this helps us match you with the most appropriate counselor

✱ Your insurance information, if you have insurance. You will need to confirm your coverage. A help page is included in New Client Forms.

✱ The best days and times for appointments, as well as which location you would prefer

✱ How you found out about Samaritan

Once a counselor has been assigned to you, he or she will contact you directly to set up your first appointment. All scheduling is done through the therapists, as they keep their own schedules. Prior to your first appointment, you will be asked to fill out the forms found under the New Client Form button (above or below) and bring them with you to your first appointment.
