Our Mission: To Bring Help, Hope and Change to All Who Cross Our Path
The genesis of Village Counseling Center goes back to a crisp autumn day in 1984, underneath a mighty oak tree resplendent with an array of spectacular fall colors. That is when David & Debbie McFadden discovered together the purpose that would drive their lives…a mission that would ultimately change countless lives and communities in Greater Chicagoland.
Relationship-Centered Counseling Built Upon Strong Family Values, Sensitivity and Compassion
Their vision was to create a unique relationship-centered counseling center built upon strong family values, sensitivity and compassion that would change lives...leaving an enduring impact and legacy. Today in two locations in the Northwest suburbs of Chicago, that vision continues.
You Don’t Have To Go Through It Alone.
We are here to help you “figure it out”. We’re not here to wave a magic wand or fix the problem and make it go away. We want you to understand that there is somebody who cares enough about you, who’s willing to get in the boat with you—with your stuff and just help you figure it out... to compassionately help you sort through it and find a way. There is New Hope for a Better Life. There is always hope, always a solution somewhere within the problem and you don’t have to go through it alone.
There’s no guarantee that you’re not going to hurt, but when you can develop a track record of PEACE there’s nothing that can come your way that you can’t really deal with.
Changing Lives, Helping People
For us, it’s not just a job, it’s not just a paycheck and it’s not just about how many people we run through the door—it’s about changing lives. It’s about helping people. It’s about continued growth for those people we help.
You can’t give what you don’t possess. You can’t take someone where you haven’t been. There will be bumps on the road, but we’ve been down the road before. We know there is hope because we’ve experienced it. As long as we have breath, we are committed to walking with you and you’ll know that we’re on a journey together.
We consider ourselves blessed. We have what many counseling centers only dream about: A clear purpose and mission that still makes our hearts race each day; a team of the most remarkable people you’ll ever meet; and clients committed to striving for a better life.
