About Us

Fox Valley Institute was founded in 2001 by Dr. Laura Bokar

As the sole therapist, Dr. Bokar met with people every day that had a growing desire for more deeply satisfying lives, families and careers. As her passion for helping individuals understand and conquer life’s challenges grew, so did the company.

Today, Fox Valley Institute is comprised of eighteen professional and dedicated individuals offering psychiatry and individual, children, adolescent, marriage, family and group counseling services.

Our simple and straightforward philosophy is centered around you. Since everyone is unique, we start by listening. We want to get to know you, your situation, your family and anything else that may be relevant. We then begin to work with you to set manageable, realistic goals.

In order to better serve you, our team continually enhances our education to learn about and indulge in the best and latest available solutions. This innovative commitment allows us to tailor to our clients’ specific needs.
