Confident Female Patient
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.

Dr. Cassiday changed my life. She took me on “field trips” to wherever was necessary to deal with my OCD triggers. She never hesitated to get down in the trenches with me and teach me new ways to respond. She was truly a partner in my healing. We laughed a lot together, so what could have felt pretty miserable, actually was often quite fun. And after we extinguished the rituals, we worked on changing my thought patterns. So now I am less anxious and more productive than ever before in my life, including before I developed OCD. And the techniques I have learned help me in ALL aspects of my life, not just with the OCD. I couldn’t be more grateful to her.
