COVID-19 Update - June 24, 2020

Great Changes continues to accept new clients. We are gradually transitioning to safely return to in-person sessions at the office, determined by each therapist and client on an individual basis. Our Reopening Preparedness & Response Plan and related forms can be found on our FORMS page. All therapists will continue to provide Telehealth for as long as insurance companies are covering that service.

Leave a voicemail for Denise at 708-995-7226 x100 to make an appointment or to obtain further information.
