Illinois-Based Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist Amy Wilhelmi wins the Daily Herald Suburban Business Entrepreneurial Excellence Award.
Amy Wilhelmi, a St. Charles-based licensed marriage and family therapist, was one of several honorees honored during the Daily Herald Suburban Business’ 23rd annual Entrepreneurial Excellence Awards, in partnership with NAWBO Chicago. The awards were presented during a virtual ceremony on Sept. 22.
The awards recognize and build entrepreneurship in Cook County, DuPage County, Kane County, Lake County, McHenry County, and Will County. Honorees demonstrate the best traits of entrepreneurship, including willingness to take risks, drive, perseverance, and business creativity.
Wilhelmi is the founder of the Balance Wellness Collective, a therapy, and divorce mediation practice in St. Charles. She describes her business as an integrative and holistic mental health practice with professional therapists and natural health professionals on staff. Clientele includes children, couples and families, individuals with addiction, and the LGBTQ community.
The publication recognized Wilhelmi in the Growth category. This category is measured by how the entrepreneur has contributed to the growth of the company or organization. Honorees were also chosen for their active participation in local and regional business growth, their promotion of charitable and civic causes, and their work to build the region’s workforce and enhance its quality of life.
Wilhelmi, author of the new book “Make Mental Gains,” explained how her business, a pillar in the community for many years, had to institute changes after the pandemic.
“I thank the Daily Herald Suburban Business for recognizing myself and Balance Wellness Collective for this award,” she said. “Especially in the post-COVID era, making mental health visible and a priority in our community is extremely needed. We had to do a very quick pivot to telehealth virtual care, and now we're on our way back to in-person sessions with full force and are here to continue to serve. This award is timely for visibility and best practice continued client care. We love what we do serving individuals, couples, children, adolescents, and families with 12 therapists on staff and hope we can continue to normalize mental health in a holistic and integrative person-centered way and make it accessible to everyone for years to come. We're all about making mental gains.”
