My therapist at Ardent is a real person, just like everyone else I have met at Ardent. I have had therapy at other agencies where the therapist could have been a robot with no personality.
-- Sharon in Chicago  

Mission & Vision

The Ardent Counseling Center’s mission is to provide accessible quality holistic mental health services to individuals, groups, couples, and families in Iowa and the Chicagoland area. Our therapists are passionate about meeting clients where they are, helping them feel welcome, and supporting them in creating meaningful change through a variety of service options.

We envision a world where people are able to obtain mental health services according to need, irrespective of financial considerations. Where people will be free to seek traditional or progressive services according to their choice, without fear of stigmatization.
