We all experience difficult times when despair, anxiety, trauma, or when loss and change feels overwhelming. You’re not alone, and there are ways to get through the pain.
Our clinicians meet you wherever you are on life’s journey. It’s a safe place to help clarify life’s complicated problems and gain new skills in addressing the issues.
Sometimes the connections between mind, body, and spirit feel broken. Our clinicians will help integrate all aspects of your life until you feel whole and at ease.
Lori Parrish is our new Executive Director
After ten years as Executive Director, the Rev. Jeanne Hanson will retire on June 30. The Executive Search Committee went to work to find the right person to take the Samaritan team to the next level. Lori Parrish, who is very active in the McHenry County communities, checked all the boxes and was selected unanimously by the Board.
Lori currently serves on the County Board, is a Commissioner for Crystal Lake Police and Fire, and is a member of Crystal Lake and McHenry Chambers of Commerce. She's also owner of Parrish Coaching and Consulting helping people focus on individual and team growth and development.
CELEBRATION OF SERVICE
Celebrating the retirement of the Rev. Jeanne Hanson and the Rev. Dr. Zina Jacque
Since the day they met in 2007 while serving as two of three women clergy in their respective churches, Jeanne's and Zina's ministries have intertwined. From being co-chairs of the Barrington Area Ministerial Association, to leading Samaritan together as the Executive Director and the President of the Board, they have appreciated and relied on one another's faith and friendship.
Now they find themselves being called to move on from their ministries at the same time, and hope you are able to join them in celebrating their shared service to their communities.
