The Counseling Place


Where life and relationships begin to get better!





Who we are...

The Counseling Place is where you will you will find professionals who care, tools that work, and encouragement to build the skills you need to be more successful in life's journey.

We support individuals and families with unique and practical approaches to assist our clients to enjoy maximum benefit while they work on their personal growth.

We opened our office in 2008 and were the first Counseling Office in Washington. Illiin Family Counseling, Morning Light Counseling, and Next Step Training have always worked to serve Washington and the surrounding communities with the best couneling resources available. Over the years we have worked hard to help strengthen individuals and families throughout Central Illinois.


We take great pride in the trust that has been offered to us to provide quality care at affordable prices. It is our desire to continue that tradition at The Counseling Place offices.

We feel the relationships we establish with our clients make our counseling relationships unique and highly effective. You matter, and your family matters to all of us.

The Counseling Place is where the hope that life and relationships will get better begins!
