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.

Occasional anxiety and stress is a normal part of life. You might feel anxious or “stressed out” when faced with a problem at work, before taking a test, or making an important decision. But anxiety disorders involve more than temporary worry or fear. For a person with an anxiety disorder, the anxiety or stress does not go away and can get worse over time. The feelings can interfere with daily activities such as job performance, school work, and relationships. There are several different types of anxiety disorders. Examples include generalized anxiety disorder, panic disorder, and social anxiety disorder. Therapy can greatly benefit the person seeking treatment from anxiety and stress.

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 ....

Mary Lynn Meyers, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

Within driving distance of Lincolnwood

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.

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.

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. The website contains interactive modules for managing a variety of emotions, including anxiety. I was the content author for these modules and use all of these methods in my practice.

Anxiety Counselor

Ralph Whetstine, Psy.D., ACHT

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

Similar in approach to the treatment of depression, I take a holistic approach to the treatment of anxiety and stress disorders. I seek to restore function and break the momentum cause by ineffective habits that were created as a knee-jerk way of responding to anxiety symptoms. The instinct to try to control our emotional experience is strong and understandable, but often creates difficulties that make anxiety symptoms more entrenched and difficult to treat. Learning techniques of relaxation and mindfulness are instrumental in the effective treatment of anxiety symptoms and regaining the kind of balance lost in the unrestrained experience of anxiety symptoms.

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.
