Psychotherapist

Everyone experiences anxiety at some point, but for some the anxiety is so frequent or intense that it interferes with their lives or even triggers panic attacks. I use Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) to help my clients get a sense of control over their own anxiety. We collaborate to learn skills to reduce the frequency or intensity of the anxious feelings, to tolerate the anxiety when it does occur so they can still function through it, and to practice habits that reduce stress and improve general mental health.

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.

Allison Schechter, PsyD

Clinical Psychologist

Most people experience normal worry and anxiety from time to time; however, when this anxiety begins to disturb a person's overall functioning, it may be time to seek outside help. Anxiety is a very common disorder and one that can be effectively treated with therapy. People are often able to identify the emotions evoked with anxiety (such as fear or panic), but they are less often able to identify the thoughts involved that lead to this emotion. I work with clients to increase their coping strategies and pay better attention to and identify their thoughts that lead to uncomfortable emotions, and then work to stop or change these negative thoughts to healthier and more productive thoughts.

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.

Anxiety: it is that feeling that keeps you up at night. It is what causes that pit in your stomach when you keep replaying that moment from your day, over and over in your head, when you are trying to sleep. It can paralyze you from accomplishing the goals that you want and deserve. You do not have to live like that anymore. Clint works on treating anxiety with multiple techniques to break that cycle of negative thinking and to help you learn let go of worry. Clint also utilizes meditation and mindfulness techniques that can help with sleep and reduce daily anxiety

Anxiety and stress counseling benefit by sorting through those parts of your life that are unsettling or overwhelming. Anxiety is based on fears, whether conscious or unconscious that counseling discusses in order to understand, problem solve and make peace with.

Anxiety Counselor

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

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor (LCPC)

Within driving distance of Elmhurst

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.

All of our lives are impacted by stress. Sometimes stress in our lives become overwhelming due to the severity of the situation. We all are familiar with feelings of anxiety during our lives. Anxiety is a healthy signal that allows us to know that something in our environment may be threatening to us and our safety/suvival. When these feelings become so intense that we feel paralyzed and unable to carry out many important tasks of our life, it is important to learn new ways of managing these feelings.
