In the course of human life, we will go through times of grief, regret or sadness as certainly as we will experience joy, relief and happiness. This is what makes us so distinctive: We are each a singular creation, and the circumstances affecting our moods will always be a personal journey.
Sometimes, however, feelings of depression or anxiety might not go away. They might persist or even worsen, as well as beset us at any time for any reason. These sustained emotions might be caused by an underlying condition that needs professional care.
Whether troubling feelings are chronic or temporary, Oak Brook families can find the support and answers they need to help resolve them. Polaris Counseling specializes in depression and anxiety counseling that centers on the person’s self-awareness, healing and positive growth.
Oak Brook, IL / Depression Counseling
When we’re feeling hopeless or depressed, it’s easy to think we’re alone with our struggles. Our lives might seem like they can’t get better or that we don’t deserve to be more peaceful or happy.
The truth is we are not alone, and things can improve. If you are feeling this way, you have people who care, who understand and who can help you move forward again.
Polaris Counseling works closely with Oak Brook families and individuals who might be suffering from depression. The first step is being aware of symptoms of depression, which can include:
- reduced motivation
- sudden weight loss or gain
- lower energy
- too much or too little sleep
- involuntary crying or sadness
- feelings of worthlessness
- short temper
- undeserved guilt
- decreasing interest in hobbies and activities
- difficulty focusing

Oak Brook, IL / Anxiety Counseling
Today’s culture of social media, overscheduling and pressure for results and success is a breeding ground for feelings of anxiety. Anxiety is a rapidly growing issue among adults and young people alike.
Anxiety itself doesn’t always have to be bad – it is part of our built-in defense against incoming stressors and possible threats or difficulties.
When worries and racing thoughts build up too much, however, anxiety can become a condition that impairs us. We might even start to respond to problems that don’t exist or that aren’t as bad as we think they are. If left undiagnosed and untreated, anxiety also can mature into a panic disorder. Such forms of heightened anxiety can include post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD).
At Polaris Counseling, we understand it’s not always easy to seek help for increasing struggles with anxiety. We specialize in anxiety counseling for Oak Brook families and individuals, including counseling for OCD and PTSD.
Our licensed, educated counselors listen to you and help you get your thoughts and emotions under control so you can feel clear and calm again. With us, you can begin to free yourself from constant worry.
