In life we won’t always be able to avoid times of grief, regret or sadness – it’s part of our human condition. As life changes, however, so often do the circumstances that affect our moods. Peace and happiness can always be within our reach.
If feelings of depression or anxiety persist or worsen, however, they may indicate something more than a response to a life period or situation. They might have an underlying cause or condition that requires professional attention.
Whether feelings of depression or anxiety are temporary or chronic, Downers Grove families have access to meaningful counseling that centers on each specific person.

Anxiety Counseling for Downers Grove, IL
In today’s wide-open, fast-paced, often disconnected society, anxiety is a growing issue among adults and young people alike.
Anxiety in itself isn’t always bad – it can be a natural, built-in reaction for alerting us to a possible threat or difficulty. When operating correctly, it’s a useful mechanism for self-protection.
Anxiety becomes a problem when worries overtake us, sometimes making us respond to problems that don’t exist or aren’t as bad as we think they are. Such worries can develop into a panic disorder that affects our quality of life. Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) are two forms of this amplified anxiety.
At Polaris Counseling, we understand it’s not always easy to seek help when it feels like our mind is moving too fast. We specialize in anxiety counseling for Downers Grove families and individuals, including counseling for OCD and PTSD.
Our trained, compassionate counselors listen to you and help you get anxious feelings under control so you can think clearly and peacefully again. With us, you can start to free yourself from constant worry.
