Anxiety Counselor

Mary Lynn Meyers, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

In 60091 - Nearby to Lyons.

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.

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,

Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Alcohol/Drug Counselor

In 60164 - Nearby to Lyons.

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.

While most treatment approaches for anxiety and stress are effective on the surface, they don’t treat the real problem. Mantras, deep breathing, and rational dialogues about your fear being irrational rarely work---for most people don’t believe it or you! Imagine if you can trick the brain into changing without you telling your conscious mind that you are changing it? Problem with anxiety and stress is that the brain in this state knows you want to change it and it resists. Contact Kevin@kevinfleminphd.com for the ultimate stress and anxiety solution that will literally change your brain's autonomic nervous system patterns while you sit on your butt. 877-606-6161.

Everyone feels anxiety at some point in their lives but when it starts to interfere with your life, counseling can help. Although anxiety can feel debilitating, it is treatable. People with anxiety don’t always share the same symptoms, they vary from person to person. Therapy will help you to reclaim your life and function in a chronically stressful world.

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.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

In 60463 - Nearby to Lyons.

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 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

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor, Board Certified Dance/Movement Therapist

In 60601 - Nearby to Lyons.

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.
