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.

Before seeing Dr. Pojas, I spent 15 years years so scared of needles and blood draws I couldn’t even look at a picture in the newspaper without feeling faint. After six months of treatment with Dr. Pojas, I was able to get a blood test and even give myself an injection. Dr. Pojas taught me to manage my physical tendency to faint as well as the fear I’d developed because of it. I am a healthier and more confident person because of my work with her.

My children have been able to gain the necessary skills to manage their OCD at times of crisis because of the knowledge, caring, and expertise of Dr. Cassiday.  She was able to guide us through some very difficult times and help give our family the skills (using cognitive behavioral therapy and exposure and response prevention) so that our family could get back to normal. She was always there with us, and she still is.  She is so kind and so gifted in her field!

I had encountered problems with anxiety and depression in the years since becoming a graduate student. My anxiety issues really put my education and career goals at risk and, indeed, threatened to end the pursuit of a career I love. With a lot of diligent work, and the advice and techniques provided by Dr. Schmaus, I am happy to say that I am in the last months of graduate school and am on track to graduate with very high marks from my teachers and instructors. I could not have done this alone and am very appreciative of Dr. Schmaus for all his efforts on my behalf.

Working with Dr. Cassiday was a pleasure, she has a very calming and soothing demeanor.  She immediately ‘got’ my child and made him feel as though his feelings and needs were all that was important when actually she was really trying to change his behavior. She was also great with me as a parent, knowing I had my child’s best interest at heart, but showing me different ways to get the same results. I feel very fortunate to have Dr. Cassiday as part of our life!

I really appreciate how The Anxiety Treatment Center of Greater Chicago has helped me to face my anxiety. When I started treatment, my anxiety was taking over, making simple tasks very difficult.  The doctor diagnosed my specific anxiety disorder and built an individualized plan to help treat it by using exposure therapy and other techniques.  Working with her has given me the confidence to face a situation head-on and overcome its challenges.
