Yehi Ohr is a 501(c)(3) non-for-profit organization established by clinical psychologists within the Chicago Jewish community to provide counseling and support for adults, children, and families dealing with a wide range of issues. Services include one-on-one counseling and psychotherapy, consultation and referral, parent education, support groups, school-based counseling, workshops on a variety of topics and collaboration with synagogues and other Jewish institutions.
 
Our name "Yehi Ohr" (let there be light) was chosen to emphasize the potential of psychological healing in dispelling the "darkness" that many people experience and which commonly leads to profound personal distress. In Sefer Beresheis, "Yehi Ohr" was also the first phrase uttered by God, underscoring the transformative power of the spoken word, and hence the therapeutic process.
