Cherilynn Veland, LCSW, MSW


"My focus is to help every individual make positive change happen - to help them create a better life for themselves. It is so fulfilling to be part of such an important process."

Chicago Couples Counseling

On knowing when is a good time to seek couples counseling, Veland says:

"Couples counseling is very challenging for a variety of reasons. It is like having several different clients in the room at one time: the couple, the couple’s past relationships, their parents' beliefs, values, and the couples relationship on which they modeled. Add in as well society's roles and differing expectations.

"For couples counseling to be effective requires a therapist who is confident, insightful, experienced, and able to manage a complexity of issues."
