Dr. Kenneth Phillips opened a private practice in Wheaton in 1986. He shared office space with Jim Cassens, Ph.D., and developed associations with a number of therapists. An ongoing affiliation with Central DuPage Hospital prompted the location of an office in Danada in 1989.


In 1994 Dr. Cassens joined the practice as its clinical director.  With medical director, Ken Phillips, MD, the practice grew to include over twenty professionals providing medical care, counseling and testing for individuals (adults and children), families and other specialized groups.


In 2004, after Dr. Cassens’ death, Barrett McRay, PsyD, and Steve Jones, LCPC, stepped into the role of directors of psychological services. Both have been with Alliance a number of years and their combined expertise has contributed to Alliance’s continued growth.


Today, Alliance Clinical Associates is a collaborative network of mental health professionals (psychiatrists, psychologists, therapists and social workers) dedicated to delivering the highest quality mental health services. We see children, adults and the elderly with staff that specialize in every phase of life. Our goal is to help each person find hope for healing and to achieve greater personal growth and wholeness.


Our staff members are all committed to serving patients with a faith sensitive perspective. Some staff have theological as well as psychological training.  Also, some have served abroad and are experienced with intercultural and cultural transition issues affecting missionaries and their families.


Several of our professionals also have teaching positions at Wheaton College and in other graduate schools. Over the years Alliance has contributed to the development of therapists who have received training here. Furthermore, supervision and regular collaborative sessions among our professionals, contribute to peer support, staff development and excellent patient care.
