Stress in a normal part of life. Yet, it weight us down - with enough stress, one's physical health starts to deteriorate - causing heart, weight, sleep, self esteem and a load of other physical and mental concerns. The good news is, the negative cycle that is anxiety and stress can be stopped. We work to identify your stressful feelings and how to regulate emotions so that stress, anxiety or even panic, does not overcome you. In addition to CBT, DBT and talk therapy, I also teach clients the art of mindfulness that helps facilitate positive client well-being.

If you experience worries, panic, stress, phobias, or obsessive thoughts, you may have an anxiety disorder and therapy can help this. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is the therapy that is most effective in the treatment of anxiety and stress. Cognitive Therapy examines the thoughts that contribute to anxiety and Behavioral Therapy examines how you behave and act in situations in which you are anxious. Our perception of any given situation, not the situation itself, determines the way we feel,

Anxiety feels terrible - locking away our natural gifts - interfering with our ability to live a joyful life. There are many interventions which can help us gain control over anxiety. Visualization and imagery, relaxation techniques, biofeedback, thought changing, exercise, energy therapies, music and research-based writing techniques - even good nutrition - are all effective methods for reducing anxiety. You can learn more about some of these interventions by logging on to the website www.mypainmanagement.net.

I work with anxiety and stress using a cognitive behavioral approach. The goal is to help the client learn that they can manage their anxiety and stress. This is done through gaining insight into their perception and thinking around the circumstances causing them stress. We also work to help them reduce the anxiety through physical activity including exercise and relaxation. Combining the thought process with the physical component work well in reducing anxiety and stress.

Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Alcohol/Drug Counselor

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.

D. S. Joel Marquart, MA, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

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.

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.

Anxiety Counselor

Richard Cohen, Ph.D

Clinical Psychologist

Within driving distance of Elmwood Park

Treating anxiety and stress is a major part of what I do as a Clinical Psychologist. I have a wide range of techniques that I can draw upon, some of which can be utilized for online or telephone therapy, while others can require office visits. When using the telephone I find it very useful to not only analyze and find solutions to your problems, but to also use workbooks, online programs, and the many different CD's that are available. This will certainly increase your coping skills. Medication is always a possibility from an MD.
