You're tossing and turning with your mind churning over What Ifs or moments that haunt. You feel stressed or overwhelmed; a sense of dread always lurking in the background. Maybe you're snapping at people or pushing them away. It might seem like everyone else is able to do things so much easier or better. Sometimes it seems like you're moving through thick fog. But it doesn't have to be this way.

I have been in practice since 2002, helping adolescents, adults, couples, families and groups. I work collaboratively with clients from a biopsychosocial perspective, using the interrelationship between the mind and body as a focus for treatment. As a medical psychologist on staff at Swedish Hospital in Chicago, I am better able to diagnose and treat psychological issues that also can lead to physical disorders and medical conditions that have concurrent psychological impact.

Deborah K Mestas has been in private practice in the Northbrook area for more than 8 years. She has learned that when clients feel hopeless and helpless and have suffered from depressive symptoms for quite some time, they truly need someone that can listen. Clients are often looking for someone to listen to the challenges in their life and to assist with helping them find their way out of the chaos. They want to move forward with their lives and feel connected to others in a positive way. With my extensive background in helping others I can do the same for anyone seeking clinical assistance.

You feel irritable and wonder whether you will ever be your old self again. You may question whether you are doing enough, are coping with a loss, or resent your partner for not helping. When you thought about starting a family, this is not quite what you expected. Nothing prepares us for motherhood, or the other curveballs life throws. Since 2005, I have met many women who think everyone else has it all together. The good news is that you can get relief from feeling overwhelmed. Imagine snapping less at people, accepting yourself, and getting through long days with more peace.

Do you feel that aspects of your life are out of control and unmanageable? Maybe you are noticing a pattern of avoiding people or places you once loved, or a sudden change in appetite, energy, or drive. Or maybe you know something is “off” and can’t quite put your finger on what is missing. The first step to change and healing is sometimes an overwhelming task. It takes a lot of courage to say, “it’s time to do something differently”.

We tend to overlook our strengths and struggles while giving so much weight to these perceived failures. We think of happiness as a destination to get to, unpack our bags, and live there "happily ever after."
