Welcome to Family Service of Winnetka-Northfield.


We understand that in today’s complex world, individuals and families often struggle with feelings of isolation, confusion, stress, depression, anxiety and conflict.


We provide relief through offering a safe and nurturing environment for individuals and families to address life’s challenges and resolve painful issues.


We encourage individuals and families to find their potential through helping them discern and reach their goals and aspirations.


We change lives through helping our clients heal, grow and prosper.


We serve individuals and families who live, work, study or worship in Winnetka or Northfield. Our staff is trained to respond to a range of life challenges and difficulties.
