Dr. Alden was terrific to work with. She made me feel very comfortable during our meetings, and always made sure to discuss what was on my mind before we moved on to that week’s agenda. I came in there wondering why I had the ‘symptoms’ I have, thinking that I was literally going crazy. She broke it down and got to the root of why these things were happening. I am in a business where it is VERY easy to take things personally, even if they are not directly related to me. She has really helped me to curtail this behavior and change my perspective on how I handle my business. I feel that I have made great strides and will continue to seek guidance when these feelings or symptoms come back or gain strength. Can’t say enough good things. Thanks Dr. Alden!

I was emetophobic, which means I had a fear of seeing, hearing, or being around vomit. I saw Dr. Alden for a few months and she was exactly what I needed. She was so calming and supportive. I can now feel comfortable going out to places where it may happen without it being on my mind and even see it without freaking out. I never in a million years thought I would get past this, and thanks to Dr. Alden I have!

Woman with OCD and Anxiety
Dr. Alden was wonderful to work with. She was very caring, thorough, and thoughtful in my treatment. We were able to laugh together, and I felt like she genuinely cared about my well-bring and progress. She was very sympathetic. I had waited a long time to seek out treatment for my anxiety, but I’m very happy with my decision to go to the Anxiety Treatment Center. Best of all, Dr. Alden provided me with the tools I need to manage my anxiety symptoms on my own. I would recommend the ATC to anyone dealing with symptoms of anxiety and OCD.

After 10 years of therapists and psychiatrists who had NO CLUE how to help my son, I am forever grateful to have found the Anxiety Treatment Center of Greater Chicago. Our therapist lifted a heavy burden from my shoulders and enabled my son to participate in society again and feel good about himself. He has returned to work – it is a miracle! Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

A Grateful Mother
We were struggling for eight months with our son’s anxiety over sleeping. I reached out to the Anxiety Treatment Center and with our therapy sessions we worked out an expected timeline, plan and full support. Dr. Pojas educated me along the way so I understood the philosophy of the treatment. We were able to conquer my son’s nighttime anxiety. As parents we gained the necessary skills to help our son combat his anxiety and most importantly, so did he. We are all now partners in helping my son succeed in life. We are extremely grateful.

A Grateful Mother
The Anxiety Treatment Center has been absolutely wonderful in helping our daughter (and me too!). Our therapist did a phenomenal job relating to our daughter’s fears and concerns, meeting her where she was at, and pushing her just enough with positive encouragement to face her fears and overcome some very stubborn anxiety patterns that we couldn’t eliminate prior to coming to the center. The doctor was patient, helpful and always put forth extra effort day or night to help our daughter achieve her goals in the most conducive way possible. My daughter’s confidence grew and she has great tools to use in the future.
