2018 has some major changes in store at Flourish, and it's time to share our plans! We are growing both our space and our staff to be able to offer a wider variety of services and rates.
First, we will have access to two more offices in our current building at 509 N Winnetka. In addition to our suite 207, we will add offices 202 and 205B. Now that we can book multiple appointments at once, we will be able to see more clients. Plus we can now customize new spaces for play therapy, art therapy, and groups.
More space means more counselors! We are currently adding several new counselors to our staff at different levels of licensure, which will allow us to offer a variety of rate levels. For the last several years, Megan Kennedy has offered reduced rates while she worked toward her license to practice independently. We are happy to report that she is now fully licensed LCSW! Congrats Megan! While her rates are no longer reduced, we found a significant need in the community for lower rates, so we will be adding more provisionally licensed staff to our team. We have several LPC-Interns who will soon be joining us, and will possibly be hosting a few student interns. Both licensed and student interns will be able to offer more affordable counseling sessions. We are also adding two fully licensed staff who bring unique interests and expertise to our clinical team.
We will post bios and pictures of all of our new staff as we bring them on board in the next several weeks. Can't wait to introduce you to them!
In the meantime, meet Dr. Lin, our newest addition to the team. She is a counseling educator and supervisor, and she played a critical role in the development of both Kambria's and Rosie's counseling skills as their former professor and supervisor. Dr. Lin speaks English, Mandarin, and Taiwanese, and specializes in counseling Asian Americans. We are privileged to have her join us!
