Anxiety Counselor

Samantha Elliott, MA, LCPC

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor

1409 W Irving Park Rd, Chicago, Illinois

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.

Occasional anxiety and stress is a normal part of life. You might feel anxious or “stressed out” when faced with a problem at work, before taking a test, or making an important decision. But anxiety disorders involve more than temporary worry or fear. For a person with an anxiety disorder, the anxiety or stress does not go away and can get worse over time. The feelings can interfere with daily activities such as job performance, school work, and relationships. There are several different types of anxiety disorders. Examples include generalized anxiety disorder, panic disorder, and social anxiety disorder. Therapy can greatly benefit the person seeking treatment from anxiety and stress.

Anxiety Counselor

Jade Wurster, MAAT, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

1409 W Irving Park Rd, Chicago, Illinois

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.

Anxiety Counselor

Kevin Fleming Ph.D.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

Chicago, Illinois

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.

Anxiety Counselor

Katie Bogacki, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

4801 W. Peterson Ave., Ste. 308 , Chicago , Illinois

The experience of chronic anxiety and stress can be depleting on an individual. My goal is to assist clients in challenging the causes and learning ways in which to reduce their stress and anxiety. I examine the long term effects on their physical well being as well as mental and develop plans to achieve a higher level of overall wellness. I often incorporate mindfulness strategies and mediation to center clients and become more in tune with the present. This is particularly helpful in working with my clients who are mothers or who are experiencing fertility issues or miscarriage.

Anxiety Counselor

Matt Frantz, MA, LCPC

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor

122 S Michigan Ave, Suite 1025, Chicago, Illinois

Anxiety can feel so isolating. We feel it in our body as well as in our racing thoughts and feelings of fear and panic. It’s hard to describe and sometimes even hard to pinpoint its cause. In therapy you will experience a safe, non-judgmental space to learn more about the causes of your anxiety, gain skills to manage it and ultimately find relief from the physical and emotional symptoms of anxiety.

Anxiety Counselor

Taylor Newendorp, M.A., LCPC

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor

6160 N. Cicero Ave. Suite 304, Chicago, Illinois

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.
