Innovative Counseling Solutions (ICS) is an outpatient counseling center in Valparaiso, Ind., just 30 minutes southeast of Gary. One of just 115 (37.7 percent) private (for-profit) centers in Indiana, ICS is owned and run by a therapist who has more than a decade of experience in working with children, teens, adults and entire families struggling with emotional and behavioral health issues.

An outpatient center, ICS is open Monday through Friday, from 4:45 p.m. to 9 p.m., and on Saturday and Sunday by appointment.


At its core, Innovative Counseling Solutions aims to “provide quality mental health services by utilization of innovative assessment tools and therapeutic methods proven to be effective.” The private center claims to work with individuals of all ages and backgrounds seeking help with trauma, grief and loss, ADHD, anger management, substance use disorders (SUD) and related addictive behaviors, issues at school and work, and family conflict amongst other common challenges. Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) is available for clients with past or present trauma.

Due to a conflict of interest, according to the center’s website, ICS does not accept individuals who are “currently involved with” or anyone who “becomes involved with” the Indiana Department of Child Services (DCS). In case of the latter, ICS assists clients locate another therapist.


Innovative Counseling Solutions is owned and operated by a therapist who is “outcome oriented and data driven,” per the center’s website. She is also trained in providing EMDR for trauma-affected individuals.

REVIEWS has yet to receive any reviews from the center’s alumni, affiliated friends or family members, or staff. On Google, however, where ICS maintains an excellent average rating of 4.6 out of five stars from 11 individuals to date, former clients described the facility’s owner and lead therapist as “empathetic and straightforward”, friendly, and professional.[1]

“Her counseling is exactly what I need and I will continue to follow up with her. I highly recommend her to anyone in need, wrote K.L.P. in a representative five-star review. “Welcoming environment; knowledgeable therapist(s); convenient location; reasonable hours; accepts many insurances,” added Kathleen, another satisfied client.


Innovative Counseling Solutions encourages prospective clients to contact the center directly “regarding which insurance companies” it contracts with. A private facility, ICS accepts self-pay and offers reduced rates for those who qualify.
