Dr. Vinita Menon & Dr. Melissa Terry

We’re glad you found us.

Collaboration is at the core of our practice. We are both licensed clinical psychologists and nationally certified school psychologists from the Chicago area. We share a passion for serving clients across the lifespan and transforming systems to better support them.

On a personal level, we love being psychologists and infuse our work with healthy doses of social justice, personal warmth, and humor. Learn more about how we bring our skills and professional experience together to help you thrive.

We’re excited to expand our team to include Joan Lockridge-Meglan, licensed professional counselor. Joan’s expertise allows us to serve even more children, adolescents, and families in Northern Illinois.
