For over 30 years, The Anxiety Treatment Center of Greater Chicago has been the source for the best anxiety care in Chicago, the North Shore, and the Western Suburbs. Led by the renowned Dr. Karen Cassiday, ATC offers patients a PROACTIVE solution to their anxiety disorders, allowing you to regain control of your life and providing you with the tools to manage your suffering. Our large group practice, with offices in Deerfield, Chicago, and Oak Brook, is composed of psychologists and therapists who have been specially trained in the treatment of anxiety and stress-related disorders. Our focus on anxiety utilizes cutting-edge, scientifically based treatment, which involves the active participation of patients (and their parents, in the case of children) in the process of recovery. Cognitive behavioral therapy, exposure-based therapy, mindfulness training and motivational interviewing are just a few tools we utilize to help modify thought patterns, carefully expose you to situations which make you fearful, and EMPOWER you to manage your own anxiety. Our approach is results-oriented, which enables you to experience success more quickly.

A group practice gives us the flexibility to treat you where you need it most. If anxiety has diminished your ability to participate in typical daily activities, our therapists will conduct sessions in your own home or in the place where you experience the most anxiety. By systematically and carefully exposing you to fearful situations, we work to reduce the discomfort and symptoms you feel. We have worked with patients in a variety of situations such as shopping, attending work, driving, flying, going to school or using public transportation. Having a large team of therapists also enables us to treat the most complicated anxiety cases with an intensive, multi-modal approach that works rapidly to restore good mental health. In the most severe cases, we can help to avoid inpatient hospitalization by mobilizing quickly to provide intensive, customized treatment in your home.

We treat adults and children of all ages, as young as 2 years old, in our quest to provide you with the most advanced and compassionate treatment available. Spouses, partners, parents, and family members are often included in our treatment approach. We have a particular expertise in treating children of all ages: young children, adolescents, teenagers, and college students. Parents are always grateful for the support and guidance as we offer a much sought-after roadmap for how to purposefully approach their child's anxiety. Our offices have been designed to make children comfortable, and to include the active participation of parents. We can help you overcome the problems that fear has caused, and teach you to manage your fears, worries, and compulsions to live a life with confidence. Call us today to schedule a confidential consultation.
