As a training center and a mental health provider committed to easing access to mental health services for everyone, we maintain affordable fees compared to the general Chicago market. Our standard fee per counseling session (45-50 minutes) is $120 if the provider is a professionally licensed staff member and $90 if the provider is a student-in -training.

Keep in mind that students-in-training are intensively supervised by licensed clinicians. Because of this, in many ways, if your provider is a trainee, it’s almost like getting two therapists!

Qualifying for a reduced fee

In many instances, we are able to provide a reduced fee should you be qualified based upon income and a few other financial factors. Our Clinic Coordinator can assist you with applying for a reduced fee. In some instances, fees can be reduced by 50% or more for those who qualify


Interwoven and The Forensic Center are Medicaid authorized. We are in-network with the following Medicaid MCOs: Illinicare, Blue Cross Community Health, Harmony, Molina, NextLevel Health, and Meridian. We are not in the CountyCare network; however, we might be able to get pre-authorization.

If you have insurance other than Medicaid

We are not in-network with any private insurance networks; however, many plans will pay them members significant reimbursement for out-of-network services. It’s important that you contact your insurance provider to learn what percentage is covered and other details such as the deductible and how to secure reimbrusement.
