The North Suburban Center for Anxiety provides individual counseling for children (9+), adolescents, and adults. Treatment consists of the following:

  • Initial, comprehensive assessment that evaluates a client's history, functioning, presenting concerns, and treatment goals
  • Individualized treatment plan that is tailored to meet the client's needs 
  • Skills-based approach that teaches clients to challenge their irrational thoughts, modify their fear-based behaviors, and ultimately decrease their overall anxiety

  • Frequent consultation with the client’s schools, doctors, and outside providers to provide consistency of care and to help maintain gains outside of session

  • Sessions in the office, in the home, at school, in a restaurant, at a mall, or wherever anxiety may be experienced and exposures may be helpful
