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.

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor

1033 University Place Suite 330, Evanston, Illinois 60201 | 8474006923

I have a particular interest in treating anxiety disorders including OCD, generalized anxiety, specific phobia, panic disorder, health anxiety and separation anxiety. I recognize that anxiety often manifests with physical symptoms which can be exhausting and in some cases feel overwhelming and isolating. Understanding and treating the underlying cause of the anxiety can eliminate the symptoms and dramatically improve quality of life.

Clinical Psychologist

806 Ridge Terrace, Evanston, Illinois 60201 | 847-328-5022

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.

David Johnson, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

1818 Dempster St., Evanston, Illinois 60202 | 847-475-3017

Stress and anxiety is very prevalent in our society. How it is experienced is very individualistic and therefore requires treatment to be tailor-made for each person. Thoughts and beliefs will be examined because this is where substantial changes can be made. We all have "stressors" in our lives while "stress" is the way we respond. I am very helpful with the individual's stress response and symptoms. I train the client in how to maintain their own regulation which teaching each person how to breathe and stay grounded as we know that when the sympathetic nervous system is aroused, there can be numerous symptoms that need to be addressed which are individual fear responses.

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

1167 Wilmette Avenue Suite 207, Wilmette, Illinois 60091 | 847-828-6066

I have worked with many clients experiencing anxiety and stress in relationships with family, friends and colleagues or as a result of addiction and relapse, or health issues. Mindfulness practices are incorporated directly into my therapy sessions from the very beginning to allow my clients to begin to calm their overactive stress response systems and feel a reduction in their anxiety immediately. Over the long term, clients see the benefits of taking a moment to pause and reflect that they have a choice in how they respond in the moment to challenging interactions.
