Anxiety Counselor

Sheldon Isenberg, LCSW, BCD

Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Board Certified Diplomate

Within driving distance of Des Plaines

I personally have suffered from anxiety and come from a family where anxiety was a pervasive undertow. I know how anxiety can dominate a life and stress the lives of others. Medications may have been tried and and medical services utilized and proven not enough. In counseling I work with my clients individually, sometimes together with a spouse, in a conversational manner to get at the thought patterns contributing to stress and anxiety. Helping the client to get to the base of their anxiety, how they are stressing themselves out in their given life situation and how specifically to change these entrenched patterns is my goal. Referrals are made for other forms of help as necessary,

Anxiety Counselor

Sharon Depowski, LCSW, CADC

Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Alcohol/Drug Counselor

Within driving distance of Des Plaines

Today's world brings many stressors into our lives. I would encourage the individual to discuss their stressors, and assist them in learning positive coping strategies. Sometimes it is difficult to make these changes after years of habits, but I would stress the benefits of change. I would encourage the individual not to have such impossible standards for their behavior, which often leads to stress and anxiety. I have found that many individuals who are supportive of their friends often over extend themselves, so I would also encourage healthy boundaries.

Anxiety can be hard to deal with it. Anxiety can cause worries, fears, panic attacks, obsessive thoughts, lack of sleep and concentration. In counseling, you learn about negative thoughts and behaviors can contribute and trigger anxiety. Counseling helps to uncover the underlying causes. Together we find ways to relax, look at situations in a different ways, and to cope.

Anxiety Counselor

Charles Hughes, MA, LCPC, DCC

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor, Tele-Counselor

There are three things you need to learn about stress, worry and anxiety. First, you need to learn to ignore unhelpful thoughts. Second, you need to learn to accept uncomfortable feelings. Neither of these is easy. Meditation will help and I can teach you to do that; meditation is easy, despite what you may have heard and the research says it is the best way known to minimize the effects of anxiety and worry. The third thing you need to learn is what role worry and anxiety play in your life. You may not be able to be worry free, but you can learn to worry a lot less.

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.

Anxiety and stress are correlated with depression and frequently they co-occur. I can help people relax and lower their anxiety with EMDR and supportive counseling. I can also refer them for medications. Many times anxiety is a symptom of deeper unresolved issues which can be addressed psychotherapeuticly.Again EMDR can be used to help create a "safe place" to go too. It can also be teated with cognitive behavioral psychology as sometimes "distorted thinking" is involved.

Anxiety is a term used for several disorders, each disorder has a different defining characteristic but overall they cause symptoms such as feeling nervous, edgy, fearful, or constant worrying. Anxiety can vary in its intensity also: ranging from feeling uneasy to losing sleep or spending hours worrying about something. Ask yourself the following questions: Do you feel constantly tense, worried, or on edge? Are you always asking yourself “what if”? Are you unusually exhausted by the end of your day? Does worry stop you from completing tasks at work, school, or with your family? Do you struggle with thoughts you know are irrational, but can’t stop or control them? Do you believe that ....

Anxiety Counselor

D. S. Joel Marquart, MA, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

Within driving distance of Des Plaines

I am trained in evidence-based CBT, ACT, DBT, Mindfulness, and other effective therapies for anxiety and stress management. However, I believe that therapy goes far deeper than mere symptom management. I treat clients as a whole person. Effective therapy has its roots in a strong therapeutic relationship. Through my clinical experience, I have learned that tangible treatment techniques are only effective in the long-term when combined with a therapist steeped in passion and care for a client. This type of therapeutic relationship is evident in empathy, hope, respect, and an openness for connecting on deeper levels with clients. I am ready to go with you on this journey, whatever your pace.

Anxiety is becoming more and more common in today's stressful world. We live at a fast, never-ending pace with high expectations and frustrating outcomes. It can be so difficult to work through the anxiety you experience while still maintaining all of the other aspects of your life. I use a mindfulness-based therapy method called Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) that has been proven through research to help with anxiety and stress. I love helping my clients who struggle with anxiety to find ways to manage those anxious feelings and thoughts and pursue the things that are most meaningful to them.
