Many people have anxiety. Anxiety is the most common problem that clients bring into psychotherapy. Anxiety can create feelings of fear, worry, uneasiness, and dread. Sometimes you can say what it is bothering you. Your job or relationship may be causing you stress and you want to solve the problems. You don’t know how to deal with the mounting pressures. Friends will often say “don’t worry about it” but that doesn’t help. Sometimes you don’t really know what is bothering you it just is. I can show you how spot these feelings before they overwhelm you and what you can do about it. We’ll get clear on what has been difficult for you and how have you been feeling.

A simple statement about the states of anxiety, depression and satisfaction might be: Depression is living in the past, Anxiety is living in the future, and satisfaction is living in the here and now. We have habitual patterns of thinking, and whole sets of beliefs underlying those patterns. Escaping from the grip of these is very enlivening. Just by taking the step of reaching out, the process begins.

There are six major types of anxiety disorders: post-traumatic stress disorder, panic disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, social anxiety disorder and phobias. Each type of anxiety has overlapping qualities, but there are distinct symptoms between them as well. Many of my clients come to me suffering from anxiety and, depending upon which type of anxiety my client is experiencing, I customize my treatment to help them find relief. For a therapist, having intimate knowledge about the different types of anxiety is critical in order to provide the best treatment possible.

Anxiety Counselor

Mitchell Milch, LCSW

Psychotherapist/Couples Counselor

Within driving distance of Elmhurst

Anxiety and stress is often symptomatic of internal conflict that creates the perception of threat. If we liken ourselves to a collection of different personality traits who all serve important functions, then the goal in reducing stress and anxiety is to make a conscious space to integrate, coordinate, and tailor, these sides of ourselves for optimal functioning. When we can learn to be the benevolent, kind, curious, and autonomous facilitator of such a network then we cease to be at the mercy of internalized critics who we continued to depend on in unhealthy ways beyond their capacities to offer effective guidance.

If you suffer from anxiety or stress then you know how it impacts upon your life. This is such a large topic. It could include ocd, panic attacks, low self esteem, ...poor relationships to numerous other issues. My approach depends upon who you are and what your issues are. I like to think of myself as being non-judgmental, creating an atmosphere where you are comfortable telling me your story. When that happens we can then identify the issue and choose strategic approaches that will fit with your views and personality so in the end you can have a life without the anxiety and stress that you are feeling presently.

When everyday worries turn into stress and anxiety, that feeling of panic and dread can feel all-consuming. Fear and avoidance increase and happiness decreases. Anxiety can impair daily functioning and interfere with our ability to connect to others and enjoy the world around us. I work with patients to understand their thoughts and reactions to stress and worry and begin to change these thought patterns.

Anxiety is simply a difficult thing to experience. It ranges from a constant feeling of distress to an acutely overpowering feeling that seems to consume. It is also quite common. Years of working with this issue have made to clear to me that part of mastering anxiety is gaining a working knowledge of why ones gets anxious. Insight is not enough however. When awareness is achieved then one can move to replace old patterns with new ones. It is these new and increasingly adaptable patterns that leads to a successful mastery of anxiety.

Stress is not only an internal problem but is evoked by environmental impingement such as family, business, and political currents. All individuals have varying levels of stress in their lives. One of the focuses of psychotherapy is to help with increasing a capacity to move through it. An enhanced capacity for imagination and creativity can be a result.

We all have multiple roles and responsibilities in our lives—as parents, bosses, children, spouses, colleagues and friends. They help define who we are and can be immensely fulfilling and rewarding. They are often, however, the source of anxiety, fear, doubt and other obstacles to our happiness. These obstacles are usually deeply rooted in the expectations of the people, cultures and institutions that have surrounded us all our lives. Using mindfulness techniques, breathing exercises, and relaxation training I help clients realize the sources and triggers of their stress anxiety. I help them create a state of internal strength and calm that allows them to use their natural creativity to find

While anxiety is a normal experience at points in our life, those who struggle with anxiety may try to find ways to cope and regain control of their emotions. Unfortunately, most of the ways that people try and cope with anxiety may be ineffective. One common way of doing this is to avoid the situations that may trigger anxiety. Typically, this will relieve the anxiety temporarily but it tends to exacerbate the overall anxiety. Think about it this way, if we are afraid of something so we avoid it, we are telling ourselves that that thing must really be scary! Only once we face it, might we find out that it isn’t so scary after all. This is part of the work that we will do together at Collabo
