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.

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.

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 and stress can keep you locked up from living your life fully. Often anxiety can be biochemical in nature or can result from ongoing stress, lack of balance or unresolved issues. Christians can struggle with these issues and often feel quite guilty in knowing that they shouldn't worry or have fear. In therapy we will carefully assess these issues in a loving, grace based manner so that you can be free from debilitating anxiety and stress.

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.

First, take a deep breath; hold it for 4 seconds; now let it out and say "Ahhhh". Anxiety and stress are a part of life and there is no way around it. But the symptoms can be managed well. 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 use a variety of methods and techniques such as hypnosis, meditation, cognitive behavioral therapy, self- esteem / self -care & psycho-education. Go ahead, take another deep breath and see yourself feeling better.

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor

In 60613 - Nearby to Vernon Hills.

I help my clients identify where their anxiety and stress is stemming from. Not what triggers it, but what ideas about themselves and the world causes them to respond to triggers with anxiety and stress. After identifying the causes of these uncomfortable feelings, we can find ways to be present and aware of when this comes up and learn to accept and manage it in the moment.

Wayne Riendeau, LCPC
Anxiety Counselor

Wayne Riendeau, LCPC

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor

In 60031 - Nearby to Vernon Hills.

My approach to working with people suffering from high levels of anxiety and stress is to use Mindfulness, Meditation and Relaxation techniques. I also utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, because so many people suffer from anxiety and stress because of "the story they tell themselves" and their personal belief system and worldview that is causing much of the distress. I will help you to relax emotionally and physically, and will also address one's thinking to get it in alignment with truth, rather than the distorted kind of thinking that happens when one is extremely stressed or depressed.
