Mother of an 8-year old girl

My daughter struggles with anxiety and trichotillomania. As her mother, I felt completely helpless and didn’t know where to turn. When my daughter started working with Dr. Schmaus, I quickly noticed a difference in her behavior and her overall anxiety. He helped her build coping strategies that she has been able to use to handle challenges in her everyday life. I am so grateful for the support we all have received at the Anxiety Treatment Center and specifically from Dr. Schmaus.

45 Year Old Man

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.

Grateful Parent

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!

Parent of a College Student

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.

Patient Who Had Previously Tried Many Different Therapists

I had sought help for my phobias, anxiety and related problems for so long that when I started therapy with The Anxiety Treatment Center of Greater Chicago I knew right away that someone finally “got it”.  Their doctors have in-depth and up-to-date knowledge of anxiety, and they effectively applied their knowledge to help guide me from clarification of my problems to management and resolution.  I never left their office without a specific plan on how to move forward.

Parent of 2 Children with Anxiety Disorders

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!
