Stress & Anxiety

Taylor Newendorp, M.A., LCPC

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor

Within Driving Distance of Skokie, IL

The first step in overcoming Anxiety is understanding how it impacts you on a daily basis. I will help you recognize your earliest warning signs that you are becoming anxious or stressed and teach you positive coping skills you can use to manage those feelings before they become overwhelming. If you struggle with Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD), Social Anxiety, Panic Attacks, or Specific Phobias, I will use CBT & Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) techniques to help you learn how to face and conquer the very things that are causing that Anxiety. You can live a life where you can effectively manage your thoughts and feelings instead of feeling like they control you.

Stress & Anxiety

Melissa Sanchez, LCPC, BC-DMT

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor, Board Certified Dance/Movement Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Skokie, IL

Consistent worry, fear and a feeling of being unsafe or unsettled can have a serious impact on relationships, work and self-esteem. Stress slowly diminishes are ability to live a full and engaged life and is often difficult to control on one's own when it has spiraled to unmanageable levels. My work with mindfulness and meditation, on a personal and professional level, has led me to believe that it is very effective for teaching us how to successfully walk through a world that is becoming increasingly hectic and often overwhelming. We will work together to recognize what patterns in the mind/body can be eliminated to leave room for joy and ease to enter into daily life.

Stress & Anxiety

Mary Lynn Meyers, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

Within Driving Distance of Skokie, IL

I have worked with many clients experiencing anxiety and stress in relationships with family, friends and colleagues or as a result of addiction and relapse, or health issues. Mindfulness practices are incorporated directly into my therapy sessions from the very beginning to allow my clients to begin to calm their overactive stress response systems and feel a reduction in their anxiety immediately. Over the long term, clients see the benefits of taking a moment to pause and reflect that they have a choice in how they respond in the moment to challenging interactions.

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.

Stress & Anxiety

Kevin Fleming Ph.D.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

Within Driving Distance of Skokie, IL

While most treatment approaches for anxiety and stress are effective on the surface, they don’t treat the real problem. Mantras, deep breathing, and rational dialogues about your fear being irrational rarely work---for most people don’t believe it or you! Imagine if you can trick the brain into changing without you telling your conscious mind that you are changing it? Problem with anxiety and stress is that the brain in this state knows you want to change it and it resists. Contact Kevin@kevinfleminphd.com for the ultimate stress and anxiety solution that will literally change your brain's autonomic nervous system patterns while you sit on your butt. 877-606-6161.

Stress & Anxiety

Denise Ambre, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Psychoanalyst

Within Driving Distance of Skokie, IL

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.

Stress & Anxiety

Louise Dimiceli-Mitran, MA, MT-BC, FAMI

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor (LCPC)

Within Driving Distance of Skokie, IL

Most of my clients enter into therapy because of stress & anxiety; it is a byproduct of whatever else you're feeling and also of our fast-paced, screen-based society. I have had success helping clients reduce these symptoms with music-based relaxation techniques, breathing, mindfulness, imagery, walking meditation, music meditation, mandala-making, and other ways to self-calm. Then it's working with your fears, how you think about them and perhaps how you respond to the world around you. Anxiety is something you can do something about with guidance, patient practice and understanding it doesn't have to define the way you live.

Stress & Anxiety

Samantha Elliott, MA, LCPC

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor

Within Driving Distance of Skokie, IL

I help my clients identify where their anxiety and stress is stemming from. Not what triggers it, but what ideas about themselves and the world causes them to respond to triggers with anxiety and stress. After identifying the causes of these uncomfortable feelings, we can find ways to be present and aware of when this comes up and learn to accept and manage it in the moment.

Stress & Anxiety

Jade Wurster, MAAT, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

Within Driving Distance of Skokie, IL

Anxiety and stress are two issues I commonly address in therapy and are often the first to be addressed due to the importance of getting back on track with your lives. Adlerian therapy helps to understand past issues that may be affecting you currently, and Internal Family Systems will help to identify and quell the parts of you that feel most anxious or stressed.
