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.

In 60164 - Nearby to Morton Grove.

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.

Chronic stress and anxiety are so prevalent in our society today. Especially with all of our gadgets and the fast pace of everything. It's difficult, and sometimes even near impossible to slow down. Anxiety can contribute to physical illness, sleep deprivation, and cause you to generally feel miserable. By giving my clients multiple therapeutic techniques, I've helped most of my clients successfully eliminate the need for their anti-anxiety medications. After working with me, my clients have experienced a significant reduction in chronic worrying, physical symptoms (nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, insomnia, etc.), and improved the overall quality of their lives.

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 many patients living with daily anxiety and stress. Anxiety and stress can rob a person of their quality of life and can ultimately negatively effect their physical health. Accordingly, I look at it as almost a personal safety issue. Quickly developing strategies to manage anxiety and stress is essential for my patients. Honestly, sometimes a person can not do it without medication, at least in the short term. Accordingly, I refer patients to one of several caring psychiatrists who can treat them as a supplement to talk therapy.

Most people think of anxiety as a terrible enemy. It doesn’t have to be. Anxiety is a normal part of life, and it’s a vital part of your survival. You actually need some anxiety to perform efficiently. The problem isn't anxiety. The problem is when anxiety gets out of control ... That's when you have an anxiety disorder. Diagnosis of an anxiety disorder means you have problems dealing with stress and pressure. You may be ashamed of it, but you really shouldn’t be: as many as 15% of the population suffers from anxiety. Along with depression, anxiety disorders are the most common and widespread psychological conditions. I can help with this condition.

First, take a deep breath for the count of 5; now slowly let it out for and say "Ahhhh". Anxiety and stress are a part of life and there is no way around it. Which type do you have? The six major types have their own distinct set of symptoms: generalized anxiety disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, panic disorder (anxiety attacks), phobia, post-traumatic stress disorder, and social anxiety disorder. Treatment for each type varies. I have specialized training and certifications in relaxation techniques, EMDR, which I combine with Brain Entrainment technology to help you manage and overcome your anxieties. Go ahead, take another deep breath and see yourself feeling better.

Clinical Psychologist

In 60076 - Nearby to Morton Grove.

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.

Does your child seem more anxious or stressed than normal? I work with youth aged 3-25 who are experiencing some level of anxiety, or experiencing some level of stress. This may include homework stress, behavioral issues, self-harm, sexting, tantrums and arguing/talking back. I can support parents in different techniques, because even good parents need extra support at times. Kids don't come with owner's manuals, and we tend to default to our own family's dynamics as parents. Simple changes can have a significant effect on your child's behaviors. I also help youth identify their feelings and make better choices. Don't hesitate to call for a free phone consultation!

To help people reduce & manage their stress I utilize clinically proven psychological concepts of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) & Mindfulness. CBT helps to address the way we process information because what we think & how we process that information leads to how we will feel which leads to how we will or will not behave. DBT concepts help us to regulate our emotions in a healthier way & Mindfulness is a very particular way of living in the present moment of life, leaning to notice things vs judge & respond vs react.

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor

In 60137 - Nearby to Morton Grove.

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.

Ralph Whetstine, Psy.D., ACHT

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

In 60007 - Nearby to Morton Grove.

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.
