About Us

Center for Authentic Living is a clinic serving the Northwest Suburban area that specializes in integrative health care. Using a range of mental health and wellness modalities, we help you address your symptoms while working with you to get to the root of your problem. 

We offer mental health treatment, somatic psychotherapy, trauma and recovery coaching, energy medicine including acupuncture, reiki, shiatsu bodywork, acupressure, nutrition, herbalism, and more, all in the same location. We are excited to announce, in the coming year, we will be offering psychedelic assisted therapy.

At CFAL you can come for any of our services from our clinical care team or go deeper and benefit from working with a primary therapist along with other modalities within our care team. We treat the whole person! Research shows doing individualized treatments show better outcomes for health, wellness, and recovery.

The continuum of care starts at our intake where you will have support in your journey...

Our Modalities:  (IFS) Internal Family Systems, Trauma and Recovery coaching, Gottman Couples Therapy, EFT, CBT, DBT, ACT, Hakomi Somatic Psychotherapy, acupuncture, meditation, herbal remedies, nutrition, and rieki.

Body Therapies: Zen Shiatsu, Acupuncture, Jin Shin Do Acupressure (trauma informed acupressure),  Reiki,  and shamanic journeying.

These treatment protocols address both our mental health and physical health during recovery. These adjunct body therapies are based on ancient systems such as Traditional Chinese Medicine, energy medicine, yogic philosophy, and trauma-informed psychotherapy. 

Effective healthcare takes a whole team of skilled practitioners who collaborate combining eastern and western holistic methods tailored to your individual needs.

                These modalities are powerful tools for stress reduction and resolving trauma.
