Mission Statement

Orange Tree Counseling and Consulting, LLC would like to begin by acknowledging that the land on which we gather is the occupied/seized ancestral land/territory of the of Peoria, Bodwéwadmi (Potawatomi), Myaamia, Očhéthi Šakówiŋ, Hoocąk (Ho-Chunk), and Kiikaapoi (Kickapoo) territories. We recognize that these people cared for and stewarded this land for generations prior to our arrival. We are liberation-focused, anti-racist, and trauma-informed, and decolonizing mental health is a part of our mission. We regularly acknowledge and integrate non-Western practices into our healing work.

Our mission is to provide exceptional mental health therapy services that prioritize inclusivity, affirming care, and empowerment. We are dedicated to fostering a safe and welcoming space where individuals from all backgrounds and identities can find healing, growth, and resilience.

Our commitment to inclusivity means that we recognize and honor the unique experiences and needs of every client. We strive to create a therapeutic environment that respects and values diversity in race, ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, ability, religion, and socioeconomic status. By embracing and celebrating our clients’ individuality, we aim to create a foundation of trust and understanding, promoting the best possible outcomes in therapy.

We believe in providing affirming care that recognizes and supports the inherent worth and dignity of each person. Our therapists are trained to approach therapy through a culturally sensitive and non-judgmental lens, ensuring that clients feel heard, validated, and respected throughout their therapeutic journey. We actively work to challenge societal stigmas surrounding mental health and promote self-acceptance and self-compassion as crucial components of healing.

Empowerment is at the core of our practice. We believe in equipping our clients with the tools, insights, and resources they need to make positive changes and lead fulfilling lives. Through evidence-based therapeutic approaches, personalized treatment plans, and collaborative partnerships, we empower individuals to tap into their strengths, overcome challenges, and cultivate resilience.

As a trusted resource in the community, we are committed to staying informed about the latest developments in mental health research and integrating them into our practice. We continuously strive for professional growth and education to provide the highest standard of care to our clients.

At Orange Tree Counseling and Consulting, we envision a world where mental health is universally prioritized, and everyone has access to compassionate, effective, and empowering therapy. We are dedicated to making a positive impact, one individual at a time, and fostering lasting change in the lives of those we serve.

Orange Tree Counseling and Consulting supports #CeasefireNow: Open Call for an Immediate Ceasefire in the Gaza Strip and Israel to Prevent a Humanitarian Catastrophe and Further Loss of Innocent Lives.
