It’s time for the 2018 review and look ahead to 2019

Dan here. It’s almost 2019 already! What the heck happened??? Don’t worry, even though I am not a father I will be sure to drop a dad joke and tell you all tomorrow that I haven’t seen you since last year.

Ok now that the crickets are done chirping, let’s see what happened in 2018 and how it absolutely destroyed our goals. Then we will take a look into 2019 and tell you what to expect.

2018 in review

  • Exploded our client list from 3 to 16. In January, Kim and I had a meeting to discuss client expansion. We had 3 clients going into 2018 and said by April we wanted 4 total. Slow growth we said. However, by mid April we didn’t have 3, we had 8. We had exploded and the names kept coming in which led to…
  • Hired Laura Butts, LCSW as a second therapist. She has been an amazing addition
  • Started and achieved Horses and Teens Together, our new group for teen girls
  • Started taking AETNA and United insurance out of network and Bluer Choice PPO
  • Announced telehealth, our HIPPA secured video session program
  • Rescued Rosie the kitten
  • Opened the second location of Healthy Strides in Forsyth for traditional therapy sessions
  • Changed and expanded our hours. We are currently open Monday-Thursday 4-8pm Our new schedule in Forsyth will be announced soon

2019 expectations

With so much happening in 2018 let’s take a small sneak peek at 2019

  • We expect Forsyth to be open by January 15
  • Healthy Strides is hosting our first ever OK Corrall Series event! We are hosting the Green seminar. See information here [LINK]
  • We will be starting a brand new, 4-week undergraduate internship opportunity for students interested in psychology, social work, or medicine as a career. More info to come
  • Look out for a new set of outreach movements on the way!

We will have more to announce as plans solidify

We are so happy to usher in 2019! It’s going to be explosive!

Healthy Strides now accepts United Out of Network

Effective today, December 28, 2018, Healthy Strides now accepts United Healthcare and Optum OUT OF NETWORK. Please note we ARE NOT an in network provider, however, the deductibles are relatively similar and usually pretty painless.

This covers all of University of Illinois undergraduate and graduate students!

We welcome United and Optum with open arms!

Healthy Strides Forsyth Opening January 2019!!!

Say what?!?!

That’s right!!

Kim and Dan have been keeping this (barely) a secret. As of today, a final approval has begun and Healthy Strides has a NEW LOCATION!

Starting in January we will have Healthy Strides – Argenta and Healthy Strides – Forsyth

Healthy Strides Argenta (9013 E. School Road, Argenta, IL) will continue to provide the unique equine-assisted psychotherapy and learning services. Look for next announcement on new and expanded hours for Argenta.

Healthy Strides Forsyth (332 Marion Ave, Suite 1, Forsyth, IL) will provide strictly office services for clients more inclined to non-barn services. Dan and Laura will offer traditional therapy services with the same great care and empathy.

We expect to begin accepting clients in mid January. We receive the keys in a week and will need to do a little work and move furniture. We will update you as we move along.

So please help welcome Healthy Strides to Forsyth!
