The founders of Ravenswood Therapy group Monica Reilly LMFT, and Irene Bond Anderson LMFT both graduated from the Family Institute at Northwestern University. Irene and Monica have been friends for 30+ years and have been in practice together for over 25+ years as independent clinicians.
Years ago Monica and Irene, along with two other therapists ventured up to the Ravenswood area from Lakeview to explore ways we could create a more spacious and welcoming Therapy space. After an exhaustive search, they found a space formerly used for button manufacturing and began the “buildout” phase together. We emphasized soundproofing a spacious yet private-feeling waiting room, and rooms lit with natural light. Of course, parking availability and close to mass transit were on our wishlist too.
Most importantly we insisted on a great mixture of carefully curated clinicians who can complement each other in their approaches and specialties-all of the highest caliber and integrity.
We are proud of our history here and the space that we have created. Monica and Irene have been able to gather and support a solid cohort of wonderfully compassionate and committed therapists, many of whom have been practicing at RTG space since we first opened this space in 2008. We can say with confidence each of these therapists continues to challenge themselves to provide the highest level of care to their practices.
Finally, as founders and therapists, they continue to welcome and support BIPOC and LGBTQIA humans.
