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

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.

Anxiety Counselor

Jens Hussey, LCPC, CADC

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor & Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor

25 East Washington St. , Suite 1719, Chicago, Illinois

Anxiety is miserable but it's also one of the easier things to treat in therapy. Whether you are stressed out and worried about "everything" or if your anxiety has a compulsive side to it I can help. I enjoy working with anxious people because there is a lot of energy that can get channeled towards fast improvement. I initially approach anxiety work from a cognitive side as to how the thought processes generate the anxiety. Understanding the emotions underneath the anxiety is an important part of the process as well. I work with generalized anxiety (worriers), OCD, social anxiety, and specific anxieties. Believe it or not - anxiety work can actually be fun and there's often a lot of laughs.

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

Joyce Marter, MA, LCPC

To help clients relieve anxiety and stress, I often incorporate therapeutic techniques that I see would be most effective for each client, including cognitive behavioral therapy, EMDR and other interventions.

Anxiety Counselor

Julianne Neely, MSW, LCSW

Play Therapist

2865 N. Clybourn Ave., Chicago, Illinois

I work with many children, teenagers, and young adults who manage varying levels of anxiety. In the pediatric population anxiety comes out in a variety of ways including social anxiety, test anxiety, school refusal, panic attacks, and constant worries. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is an evidenced based intervention that I adapt for pediatric clients to help them overcome anxiety. If your child lives in a constant state of fear that something terrible will happen, don't delay another day, call to set up an appointment and start your child on the road to reducing anxiety.

Anxiety Counselor

Matt Frantz, MA, LCPC

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor

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.
