Many people feel stressed on a regular basis. While stress is normal, stress and anxiety that prevents a person from engaging in certain activities or living a normal and healthy life can be problematic and should be identified. At Life Insight, our Downers Grove anxiety treatment therapy is designed to help those who are struggling with anxiety identify their anxiety and the root cause of their anxiety, develop coping mechanisms, and ultimately gain the tools for navigating life and stressors in a way that is more effective, manageable, and healthy. Please reach out to us today to learn how we can help.
Generalized Anxiety Disorder, often referred to as GAD, is a condition characterized by persistent and excessive worry about a number of things. For example, a person who is suffering from GAD may be overly-worried about their relationship, money, or any other common issues that people deal with on a daily basis. Sometimes, the anxiety is so severe that a person will experience anxiety surrounding an issue that feels unbearable. The anxiety could lead to irrational decisions or emotions, physical consequences (headache or digestive issues), mood swings, avoidance, sleeping problems, and more. A person suffering from GAD may also experience panic attacks and could develop depression as a result of the consequences of other side effects of their anxiety disorder.
In addition to generalized anxiety disorder, there are also a number of specific anxiety disorders, such as social phobia or panic disorder. At Life Insight, we offer anxiety treatment therapy for people suffering from all types of anxiety, as well as varying degrees of anxiety.
There are various treatment options that can help to reduce anxiety, ranging from prescription medications to autonomous actions (i.e., exercise or meditation) to therapy with a trained counselor. At Life Insight, we can help you to understand the various treatment options available to you, provide evidence for what has worked for others in the past, and guide you through our interpersonal therapy. Our goal is to help you to:

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.
