Child Therapist

The Center For Families at Life Insight is looking for you! And we’re offering a signing bonus if you’re the right Child and & Family Therapist for us!

About Us

The Center for Families at Life Insight was created out of our deep dedication to serving the families of our community. We’ve always been a resource for the whole family, and we’ve increased our ability to serve children 3-22 and their families by recruiting therapists committed to this special population and utilizing best practices in line with developmental stages. We’ve also refined our intake and communication procedures to inform and educate caregivers, and offer additional supervision and educational opportunities to support our work.

Life Insight Therapy Collective is a thriving group therapy practice serving adults, teens, children, couples, and families. Located in the heart of Hinsdale, we provide therapy and counseling services to help our community members live their best lives. We consider ourselves a “full service” counseling group and work hard to ensure our services are easy and accessible to our community. This means we like to keep things simple for our clients and handle everything from scheduling a first appointment to dealing with insurance benefits. This allows our clients to focus on what’s most important – their own growth and healing.

Sarah Stukas, MS, LCPC, founded Life Insight in 2006 with the purpose of creating a home for both our clients and our staff – a place where they can be supported, achieve the goals they set for themselves, and thrive in their lives, their work, and their relationships. We currently have 15 Therapists and a Registered Dietitian on our Clinical team and have become one of Hinsdale’s premiere providers of mental health services. As a practice, we intentionally create a heart-based, nurturing, and inclusive culture focused on supporting both our team members and our clients in their own growth and development.
