Meet Anne Shragal of Breeze Counseling

Today we’d like to introduce you to Anne Shragal.

Anne, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
I opened my practice, Breeze Counseling, in 2012 with a specialty in pediatric counseling. I recognized the need to help kids and teens who were struggling with school anxiety. Within a few months, I hired additional therapists to take on the demand of our clientele.

Today, Breeze Counseling helps kids, teens, adults, and couples with personal struggles and mental health concerns. We now have two office locations, Lisle and Oak Park. In January 2017, I launched our online counseling division. Online counseling is an up-and-coming therapy service which provides convenience from the comfort of your home.

Our motto is Making Life Simple. With stressful demands and the need to always be connected, Breeze Counseling implements an easy-going atmosphere. Life does not need to be complicated. We provide counseling services to make life simple.

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
Businesses always have ups and downs. What I learned through the years is that a wall or roadblock does not stop you from moving forward. You find a way to get over it, around it, or through it. A lesson my parents taught me was to always surround yourself with people who bring out the best in you – professionally, financially, intellectually, and spiritually. Always find ways to better yourself, your team, and your business.

So, as you know, we’re impressed with Breeze Counseling – tell our readers more, for example what you’re most proud of as a company and what sets you apart from others.
We recognize that people of all ages need direction to make their life simple, which is why we offer pediatric, adult, and couples counseling. What sets us apart from the competition is our ability to offer services that our clientele will not find anywhere else.

Our online counseling division is a huge success and one of our most popular services. With a focus on Making Life Simple, it offers convenient counseling from the comfort of your own home.

Additionally, Breeze Counseling is a cannabis-friendly practice. Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a qualifying condition through the Illinois Medical Cannabis Program. Many people have been diagnosed with anxiety or depression and do not recognize that they may qualify for PTSD. All of our staff specialize in assessing, diagnosing, and treating PTSD to help those obtain their medical card.

Whether you wish to be seen in person, at one of our office locations, or online, we are here to help.

So, what’s next? Any big plans?
I am hoping to expand Breeze Counseling to multiple locations throughout Illinois and eventually in Arizona. We will continue to provide therapeutic counseling services to those in need. Additionally, I recognize the importance to stay at the forefront of research and advocate for mental health. I believe in advancing my practice and improving the brand: Making Life Simple. I know that we will be successful if we continue to recognize the needs of our clients and think outside of the box.
