Burr Ridge Behavioral Therapy

No matter who you are, there are times when managing your emotions can be difficult. Maybe you’ve recently experienced a traumatic event, or are under extreme pressure and stress at work. Or maybe you’re someone who has simply never really learned how to manage their emotions. Whatever the cause or the event, there is no shame in needing help dealing with stress, grief, anxiety, depression, negative thinking, and other feelings. At Life Insight, our specialists offer Burr Ridge behavioral therapy services for clients of all ages and from all walks of life. Call our team today to learn more about how we can assist you.

What Is Behavioral Therapy?

The term “behavioral therapy”–often also called psychotherapy–can be intimidating. However, behavioral therapy isn’t something to feel intimidated or frightened about; instead, this type of therapy merely refers to a method of helping individuals identify and cope with specific challenges. More specifically, cognitive behavioral therapy is often used to help people identify negative or inaccurate thinking patterns and change those patterns. 

What Can Behavioral Therapy Be Used to Treat?

Cognitive-behavioral therapy can be used to treat a wide range of mental health issues, some more serious than others. To be sure, our Burr Ridge behavioral therapists can work with you to help treat, manage, and overcome conditions such as:

  • Depression;
  • Anxiety disorders;
  • Trauma;
  • Grief;
  • Relationship conflicts;
  • Everyday stressors;
  • PTSD;
  • Eating disorders;
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorders; and
  • Other mental health conditions. 

What to Expect When Working with a Behavioral Therapist

You may be nervous about your first appointment with a behavioral therapist – this is normal. Anytime you try something new, especially something that’s personal to you, it’s normal to feel unsure. At Life Insight, we will be as transparent as possible with you about the process to help put your mind at ease. During the first few sessions with one of our Burr Ridge behavioral therapists, you should expect:

  • To learn more about your mental health condition and discuss how the condition is affecting your life;
  • To set goals for what you want to accomplish as a result of going to therapy; and
  • To start to identify different tools and methods for coping with your emotions and thoughts and better managing your behaviors.

Each person is unique, and how long you may need to see a behavioral therapist before you achieve your set goal can vary greatly from a few sessions to a few years’ worth of sessions or longer.

What Our Past Clients Have To Say

We Are Open For Business

What a week for our world. As everyone tries to adapt to a new sense of normal amidst an ever-changing landscape, we've all been asked to do things differently. And humans do not like change! We crave the familiar, the predictable, the known. One of the ways we are encouraging our community to stay healthy during this time is to keep as much routine and consistency as possible, including self-care and support.

We understand the anxiety and worries that are in the world right now, we also understand the importance of connection and care and healing. We are moving all of our appointments to Telehealth sessions as of Monday, March 23rd. While this may be a different way of doing things for some of you, it allows us to be a consistent source of support for our community.

Our practice has been using telehealth for over two years, and we have a HIPAA compliant platform in place that is really quite simple to use for our sessions. All of our therapists are able to walk you through getting used to your first telehealth session and not much will be different other than you'll show up online instead of at the offices.

In fact, we're still taking new clients during this time, so if you are feeling like you'd like to talk to someone or know of someone in need of extra support right now, let them know that we are here to help. You can call or text our offices at: 630-563-0044 or sign up online via the "Book Appointment Online" button on our website.
