I was an emotional wreck when I first went. I was nervous and probably not making a lot of sense. The staff seemed to understand and immediately put me at ease. By the time I left, life just didn’t seem so bad. Thank you Braden Center for being there.

BCC will teach you new skills and perspectives that will help you better manage your life. To better serve you, we have flexible scheduling that includes weekends. Please call for an appointment, we have counselors available to meet with you.

You can count on Braden Counseling Center for:

  • LICENSED, PROFESSIONAL STAFF
  • FREE INITIAL CONSULTATION
  • NO WAIT-LIST FOR APPOINTMENTS
  • FLEXIBLE SCHEDULING
  • ACCEPTING INSURANCE, CASH, AND CREDIT
  • UNDERSTANDING AND ACCEPTANCE
  • GUIDANCE AND ASSISTANCE
  • AND MUCH, MUCH MORE!

The goal of Braden Counseling Center (BCC) is to help you change your life, so you can learn to do it on your own. BCC has an experienced staff that is licensed by the State of Illinois to provide mental health services. BCC also offers a variety of evaluations, including same-day DUI evaluations, and legal and forensic work for attorneys.

Schedule an appointment today, and look forward to a better tomorrow! You’ll start with an intake appointment. During this time you will develop a treatment plan allowing you to set goals and discover ways to meet those goals.

The counselor will work with you to determine the type of treatment that will best help you reach those goals. Whether you need individual, group, or both, BCC will help you on your way to recovery. BCC offers a personalized plan to help you get your life back on track, and be with you every step of the way.

We also offer EMDR therapy either from Dr. Jayne Braden or Jessica Cash. Call one of our offices today to schedule an appointment. EMDR therapy is a structured therapy that helps people suffering from trauma focus briefly on their trauma memory while experiencing bilateral stimulation, typically in the form of rapid eye movements. The technique is used to reduce the vividness of the trauma and the emotion associated with its memory. At our various Braden Counseling Centers, we use EMDR therapy to treat a number of disorders, particularly those associated with post-traumatic stress disorders (PTSD). This form of therapy focuses directly on the specific memory, to change the way the memory is stored in the brain. The intention is to systematically reduce the traumatic memory until it dims, and problematic symptoms are eliminated. When successful, it alters the emotions, thoughts, and responses that result from the traumatic experience.

BRADEN CENTER IS NOW HOSTING 3 WEEKLY MEETINGS IN SYCAMORE!

SMART Recovery® is a science-based addiction recovery support group—where participants learn self empowering techniques to aid their recovery through mutual-help face-to-face and online meetings and services. Meetings are: Mondays 9 am, Wednesdays, 12pm, and Fridays, 7pm.

At BCC, You Are a Valuable Person

Braden Counseling Center (BCC) staff recognizes this. This an attitude that will be apparent from your first contact with us. We are in this profession to help others improve their lives. It is mandatory to appreciate each person and the unique skills and characteristics they have.

Our acceptance of you and your situation, without judgment, is proof of our position. We strive to help you change your life, and learn skills so you can continue to feel more comfortable on your own.

Our goal is to teach you to feel competent in managing challenges that arise. Braden Counseling Center staff are required to have this perspective, and it shows in the treatment and feedback we receive.

BCC Team

People have different personalities and for this reason, we offer a FREE INITIAL CONSULTATION. During this 20 minute session, you get a chance to talk with your potential new counselor. This time is used for you to get to know your counselor and share the issues you would like assistance with.

If at the end of the session you both feel you can make progress with your situation, you can schedule your first counseling session. If, however, you do not feel this counselor is the best match for your situation or personality, we will work to help you find another.

Our goal is to help you find the treatment that will be the most effective for you.
