About Us

Our Staff


Therapist, Counselor, The Talk Lady, The Play Lady… we have lots of names!  

Our mission is to find any way to connect with you and your child to earn your respect and walk alongside you to decrease stress in Lake County IL, one family at a time.  According to the research (Fitzpatrick and Irannejad, 2008), youth are more open and willing to change if the therapeutic relationship is strong.  This is part of the “magic” of therapy, and the part that we feel so honored and so rewarded to engage in.  I love the work we do and am proud of each of the clinicians on our team!   Life’s a journey, and counseling is just one resource that is available in the community. Working with other professionals, programs and involving kids in activities like sports help to create whole, healthy individuals will create a healthy society! Let’s make our society a great place to live!

Be well, 

Kristin Patten, LCPC

Due to the expansion of the COVID-19 pandemic, LIFEPOINT IS GOING VIRTUAL until the pandemic passes!  

Lucky for all of us, like many other insurance companies, Blue Cross is now covering virtual sessions (aka telemedicine)! We care so deeply for our clinicians and clients we want to do our part in stopping this from spreading. 

As of Monday 3/16/20, we are all set to support social distancing AND keep continuity of care through online video sessions from the comfort of your own home!  Please call our office or contact your therapist for further information. 

We are also offering 30 minute virtual sessions for those needing to manage anxiety and depression from the COVID situation itself. Please call our office to set this up! 

Our number is the same: 224-208-5228

Thank you and be well!

LifePoint just added a second location in Libertyville!

We have hired 4 new therapists and offer the same warm, inviting, and fun space for youth counseling at our new 10 office suite at 1870 Winchester Rd, Libertyville, IL.

We still offer In-person and virtual sessions. We also have services for Russian and Kazakh Speakers!

Please call our office to set up your initial assessment!

We're still in Gurnee and our number is the same: 224-208-5228.

Thank you and be well!
