Midwest Counseling & Diagnostics LLC, a Chicago based outpatient mental health practice, is pleased to announce its expansion to Chicago’s Northern Suburbs. This additional facility will be located at 40 Skokie Boulevard, Northbrook, Illinois, also known as “Boulevard 40”.

Midwest Counseling & Diagnostics, LLC (“Midwest Counseling”), an outpatient mental health practice founded by Dr. Joy Ryba in 2013, is pleased to announce its expansion to Chicago’s Northern Suburbs. Midwest Counseling’s clinical leadership is composed of Dr. Danielle Doucette, Dr. Mimi Neathery and Rose Metivier, LCPC.

Midwest Counseling’s North Suburban facility will be located at 40 Skokie Boulevard, Northbrook, Illinois, also known as “Boulevard 40”. Midwest Counseling second office will initially occupy 3,077 square feet with further rights to expand as demand for their services grows.

Boulevard 40 is a Class “A”, energy star building that consists of 106,000 square feet, and is ideally situated at the intersection of Lake Cook Road and Skokie Boulevard and close to multiple food and shopping amenities and public transportation. It is 20 minutes from downtown Chicago and sits in close proximity of all Chicago’s north shore suburbs.

“Everything Midwest does is grounded in ‘warmth’, ‘integrity’ and ‘humor’. We want our clients to feel that as they enter our space. Boulevard 40 provides this, from the time you pull into the parking lot, enter the building, and continues all the way into the new space. The two-story glass atrium as you enter the building quickly hits you with a quiet, clean, secure and bright sense of feel. The space itself is located on a high corner of the building with natural light throughout. We are very excited to continue our mission in the Northern Suburbs at Boulevard 40.” – Dr. Joy Ryba, Founder of Midwest Counseling.

“We are very excited to bring our services to the North Shore Communities. We scoured many of the northern suburbs and looked at over 20 properties. Given the growth we experienced in downtown Chicago, we needed to find a location that would allow us to replicate this growth in the North Shore. We were very fortunate to have a broker that has been in the industry for a long time and was very knowledgeable of the properties’ positions and landlords. Our broker, Rich Schulz of The JRICH Company, knew exactly how to creatively structure the right deal that would allow us the flexibility and growth we needed to best serve the North Shore Communities.” – Chris Ryba, General Manager, Midwest Counseling
