Our Accreditation

This beautiful insignia was designed to represent the four elements, four "corners" of the sacred healing circle, and the name, "North Shore Wellness Services." Please visit our website to learn more about us! 

What's in a Name?

You may have noticed that our approval provider status is under two different names! Let me say this about that:

Our counseling practice was established in 2004 under the name, "North Shore Wellness Services." Even in those early years as clinicians, we knew we were also clinician-educators, and we pursued CE provider approval. 10 years later, in 2014, we rebranded our clinical practice to more accurately reflect what we do, "North Shore Counseling." The NBCC was pretty nimble by all bureaucratic standards and were able to quickly change our accredited name. The State of Illinois was not as fast a process, and so we currently sit as a single organization providing CE under two different approved names. Rest assured, the awesome educational experience we provide is the same!

“North Shore Counseling, Ltd. has been approved by NBCC as an Approved Continuing Education Provider, ACEP No. 6248. Programs that do not qualify for NBCC credit are clearly identified. North Shore Counseling, Ltd. is solely responsible for all aspects of the programs.” 

The State of Illinois offers Administrative Code 1375.220, which details the CE requirement for professional counselors. Click here for that Administrative Code. 

Notice that for professional counselors licensed by the State of Illinois, approved CE providers include NBCC ACEPs and also, according to  1375.220 c) 1) F, Social Worker CE sponsors are approved providers for counselors as well. 

The State of Illinois Department of Professional Regulation grants licensure to approve continuing education providers .
