I work with trauma/childhood trauma, self-esteem and interpersonal difficulties, depression, suicidality, anxiety , mood disorders, and issues surrounding anger management/impulse control, and life transitions.
One of my favorite reminders is that progress is not linear, and I believe that holds true for therapy as well. The therapeutic process does not require definitive structure to enable growth. Whether you are currently going through a difficult time or have decided you want to make some changes and aren’t sure where to begin, that is okay. We will work together to find answers at a pace that feels right and comfortable to you. I will work to help you understand your stressors, increase your self-awareness, enhance your coping skills, and recognize your own strengths.

As a licensed clinical psychologist, my goal is to make therapy a rewarding process that allows individuals to lead fulfilling lives. Oftentimes, people struggle to make decisions about their future, cope with a loss, question their identity, or feel conflicted in their closest relationships. Others grapple with ongoing difficulties, such as recurring depression and anxiety , that overwhelm and impair their ability to engage in their everyday life in a manageable way. No matter the challenge you face, when working with me, you will have a warm, nonjudgmental, and collaborative partner to address your concerns and support you as you take your next steps.

We at Cira Center for Behavioral Health (CCBH) believe that therapy is based on research & science, both of which are incredibly important, but know that nothing is more important than feeling heard & understood without any judgment. When a strong, supportive relationship is combined with direct feedback and skill building, people change & lives improve. We primarily work with adults who are struggling with significant life changes (divorce, starting a family, moving to a new city, etc), stress, relationship difficulties, anxiety , depression, anger, self-esteem & trauma. We offer individual & group therapy services.

My areas of expertise include depression, anxiety , family and relationship issues, grief, stress, and trauma. My approach to therapy is grounded in the belief that we are all resilient, each of us has unique strengths. I work with my clients to build on these strengths, increase their insight, and develop the trust needed to achieve their goals. I do this by providing a safe space in which you may process your experiences, express your feelings, challenge unhealthy relationship patterns, and develop self-awareness. We will work together to understand triggers to stress and to develop healthier coping skills.

Hello, I'm Dr. Chris Chroniak. For 35 years I have assisted individuals struggling with depression, stress and anxiety , trauma, grief and loss, divorce, OCD, a relationship or lack of one, as well as numerous other psychological and emotional issues. I begin therapy by developing a warm and genuine relationship with my client. We then work together to explore and work through the underlying issues that block growth and cause pain or discomfort. I also teach my clients practical and effective tools that help them deal with painful and troubling thoughts and feelings, as they occur, moment by moment.

Gains to be made include: decreased depression, anxiety , and other symptoms of distress; improved relationships; increased self awareness; heightened self esteem; increased couple and family harmony; and enhanced assertiveness and effectiveness.
In 30+ years of practice, I have seen individuals, couples, and families dealing with a wide variety of concerns. I try to provide my clients with an accepting, supportive environment in which they can openly express themselves. I view therapy as a collaborative endeavor. In line with this, I see myself as actively engaging clients in a process of better understanding themselves and figuring out ways of making the changes they seek. I have extensive experience in psychodynamic psychotherapy, couple counseling, and family systems work, and see clients in short term solution-focused treatment as well as longer term intensive therapy.

I hope to alleviate some of the inevitable anxiety surrounding the process of self-examination by providing a safe and accepting space to express yourself.
The first step in the therapeutic journey towards self-discovery, peace, and improved happiness is undoubtedly a daunting one. Perhaps you have recently undergone a major life change or have experienced a loss, or maybe you just cannot seem to find the words to express what you are feeling. The truth is that all of us will need extra support at some point in our life, especially within the tumult of current-day affairs, and summoning the bravery to recognize this is no small feat.

I have experiences working with children, adolescents and adults with experiences of depression, anxiety , grief, and complex trauma.
Struggling does not mean you are failing. Falling down is part of the process, just like rising and growing. Struggling does not mean something is „wrong” with us. It may mean we have patterns to unlearn, new behaviors to embody, and wounds that need to heal, and that takes time. I respect your desire to want to be honest with yourself and seek change. I recognize that trust is a journey and does not always comes easy, therefore I strive to make it a foundation in how I practice. I work with my clients to help them visualize the life they want to have and help them put it into practice through a welcoming and empathic approach.

“If you surrender to the wind, you can ride it.” — Toni Morrison. Together we can build a safe and collaborative space that fosters growth. Life can be messy, even demanding; we will have hard days.

I have experience in working with borderline personality disorder, depression, self-esteem challenges, anger, and generalized anxiety .
I utilize a growth-oriented approach to empower people to problem solve and make changes to pursue the life they envision. Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) strategies are used in my practice, with an emphasis on the use of trauma-sensitive mindfulness, to equip people with the skills needed to overcome life’s stressors and challenges. In dialectics, we acknowledge the opposing sides of each experience and work together to synthesize the two. I prioritize developing a safe, trusting therapeutic relationship that will meet you where you are at in your journey, and will come alongside you to cultivate your strengths.

Anxiety Therapists
At the core of anxiety is a mistaken appraisal of danger in which threats are exaggerated, triggering an array of negative feelings that overwhelm patients and lead to avoidant behavior. Therapists take aim at the three big components of anxiety—worry, physical arousal or edginess, and avoidance—by teaching one or more well-researched programs of skills that are custom-tailored to patients’ own worst thoughts.

If you're looking for a Chicago anxiety therapist, these professionals provide anxiety therapy and counseling in Chicago.
