Northern Illinois Counseling Associates, P.C. (NICA) is a private Clinical Psychology practice located in Crystal Lake, Illinois. It is where you go when you are ready for authentic and deep-structure healing.
Professional services are provided in very comforting offices housed in an historic building (circa 1886) which possesses “great karma” and “loving spirits”, as reported by dozens of clients and visitors.
Larry B. Gelman, Psy.D. and Glenn B. Gelman, Psy.D. are brothers with a reputation for being talented, innovative and dynamic “healers” with each having over thirty-five (35) years of extensive and intensive clinical psychology experience.
Rather than just focusing on manifest symptomatology of a client’s presenting problem and then rushing to implement a knee-jerk course of action, they strive to understand what purpose the symptom serves.
Many individuals and couples report meaningful therapeutic benefit immediately. For others, time, space and perspective are often required to catalyze the healing of long-standing emotional wounds.
At NICA, we go “long and deep” to help you get to the root of your problem in a collaborative, compassionate and creative way so that you are healthily enabled to navigate and integrate your particular path in life.
All “life and death” issues, whether interpreted literally or figuratively, necessitate a compassionate professional attitude which must also honor and value the subjective experiential reality of each person.
Since 1979, NICA has successfully provided consistently excellent mental health services appropriate to the unique and special needs of our clients across the spectrum of virtually every diagnostic typology.
"We love what we do and care deeply about the people whose lives we are privileged to help."
Our mission is to provide consistently excellent mental health services which are accessible, affordable, appropriate, and specific to the needs of our clients and their families.
