I work with anxiety and stress using a cognitive behavioral approach. The goal is to help the client learn that they can manage their anxiety and stress. This is done through gaining insight into their perception and thinking around the circumstances causing them stress. We also work to help them reduce the anxiety through physical activity including exercise and relaxation. Combining the thought process with the physical component work well in reducing anxiety and stress.

I work with people who experience generalized anxiety, panic, specific phobias, separation anxiety, and social anxiety. I utilize cognitive behavioral therapy, teach stress management techniques, relaxation techniques, meditation, and guided imagery. In addition, I encourage self care, promote exercise, and teach mindfulness exercises. Progressive muscle relaxation and deep breathing are important in my sessions. I also teach assertiveness techniques, help people increase self-confidence, and encourage clients to avoid caffeine.

Sheri Mueller, MA, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

Oftentimes, I hear individuals say, "I'm stressed", but anxiety is at the root. Feeling anxiety is not necessarily a bad thing. Our bodies tell us when things are not functioning as well as they could. Oftentimes, we can learn a great deal about ourselves in the process of exploring stress factors. Also, ways in which we get stuck in the past and worry about the future. Worry affects all of us.

Stress & Anxiety

Ralph Whetstine, Psy.D., ACHT

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

Within Driving Distance of Mount Prospect, IL

Similar in approach to the treatment of depression, I take a holistic approach to the treatment of anxiety and stress disorders. I seek to restore function and break the momentum cause by ineffective habits that were created as a knee-jerk way of responding to anxiety symptoms. The instinct to try to control our emotional experience is strong and understandable, but often creates difficulties that make anxiety symptoms more entrenched and difficult to treat. Learning techniques of relaxation and mindfulness are instrumental in the effective treatment of anxiety symptoms and regaining the kind of balance lost in the unrestrained experience of anxiety symptoms.

Most people think of anxiety as a terrible enemy. It doesn’t have to be. Anxiety is a normal part of life, and it’s a vital part of your survival. You actually need some anxiety to perform efficiently. The problem isn't anxiety. The problem is when anxiety gets out of control ... That's when you have an anxiety disorder. Diagnosis of an anxiety disorder means you have problems dealing with stress and pressure. You may be ashamed of it, but you really shouldn’t be: as many as 15% of the population suffers from anxiety. Along with depression, anxiety disorders are the most common and widespread psychological conditions. I can help with this condition.

Anxiety feels terrible - locking away our natural gifts - interfering with our ability to live a joyful life. There are many interventions which can help us gain control over anxiety. Visualization and imagery, relaxation techniques, biofeedback, thought changing, exercise, energy therapies, music and research-based writing techniques - even good nutrition - are all effective methods for reducing anxiety. You can learn more about some of these interventions by logging on to the website www.mypainmanagement.net. The website contains interactive modules for managing a variety of emotions, including anxiety. I was the content author for these modules and use all of these methods in my practice.

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor

Anxiety & Stress: In our fast-paced 24/7-connected world, we are constantly exposed to information that drives our biological and psychological systems (yes-they are connected) into high-alert. "Fight-or-flight" is real. And although it exists to protect us, when it's on high-alert much of the time, it gets us off balance and actually harms us. That's when we feel anxious and stressed. Either we can't sleep or our sleep is poor. We eat too much or barely at all. Our mind races, along with our heart. So what can you do? I will guide you in one of several stress-reduction techniques that have helped many people get their lives - and their minds & bodies - back in balance. Call today.

Anxiety and stress are the most prevalent challenges in our country. We live in a very complex and high stimulus culture. Do to this variable, our minds are chronically set on over activity. Hence we often find ourselves significantly overwhelmed and often behind the 8 ball on many of life tasks. When we stay in these states of feeling psychologically overwhelmed, it eventually effects our physiological systems including gastrointestinal difficulties, muscle/disc/back/neck discomfort, and cardiac functioning. Understanding the relationship between anxiety/stress and the body/mind then allows us to better manage the psychological aspect (also the origin) of anxiety/stress.
