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.

We are so grateful for the treatment we received from our Anxiety Treatment Center therapist for our 11th grade daughter. It has been amazing to watch her grow from a terrified student, unsure if she could even use the many stairs at school, to an award winner of December Student of the Month! Our doctor helped us when she hit bottom, and allowed me to observe some of the therapy sessions so that I could continue using his techniques at home. It really did make a difference, and we are all feeling so good about the progress she has made.

Our son has gone from an anxious child who refused to go to school to a confident college sophomore who has the tools to manage his own anxiety.  The psychologists at ATC led us down this path with humor, sensitivity, and positive techniques, teaching us how to support our child and enabling our son to feel like he can confidently control his own symptoms.

Thank you for all the help that your program has provided for me. I can now say from first hand experience that it has been the most helpful and beneficial part of my life. When I first started seeing the therapist I was depressed, overwhelmed and scared about what my future looked like as a mother, wife, daughter and sister.  In just under 3 months, with her help, I can now say that I’m back to my happy, positive, loud, lively self again! It’s scary being diagnosed with OCD, but I’m so glad that I have been taught and given the tools to help me be able to overcome the troubling thoughts and worries that are associated with my anxiety. I can say with certainty that exposure therapy DOES work! I’m living breathing proof of it!   I really am back to myself – however a self that’s less anxious and MORE carefree and happy than before.

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.

Dr. Alden helped me to understand and overcome my panic attacks. She was always kind, supportive, and hopeful. All of our sessions were purposeful, and her treatment strategies worked. I am grateful for her expertise, her time, and her positive support.
