Do you love where you live? We are longtime residents of Evanston and feel at home here. The community is diverse, inclusive and accepting. Three of the biggest reasons we like living in Evanston are the lakefront, the cultural offerings and the food! Let’s take a deep dive into each one.
You knew that college life would be tough. But you didn’t know it would kick in week two of the first quarter! How could you possibly already have exams and papers due? You’ve begun to live your life in a constant state of panic. Our Evanston therapists can help you get a handle on the anxiety and panic before you burn out your mental health..
The holidays can be one of the most stressful times of the year. Spending money to purchase gifts, choosing the right thing for the people in your life, preparing the meals, attending parties, hosting people in your home, overeating, managing family dynamics, and boundaries… One big, anxiety hot mess! What if you could lessen the stress and get to the other side of the end-of-the-year festivities in one healthy piece? You can!
You step outside, and the wind feels way too crisp. The trees stand naked in the chill, their now brown leaves swirling around you. Snow is way too often in the forecast. Together with the shortened daily sunlight, these signs point to one thing: winter is on the horizon. But what if Fall in Evanston didn’t have to equate to the pending doom of winter?
We have spent so much of the past 15 months indoors with limited access to our “normal” activities and livelihoods. Many of us battled being lonely. At times, the acute stress brought on by all of the unknowns weighed us down.
How do we deal with the social anxiety and panic attacks from resuming our “normal” activities? You've been vaccinated, do you want to be indoors with others without wearing a mask? Which activities do you resume?
All of these questions create a new, palpable swirl of anxiety. In my Evanston/Chicago-based practice, my clients struggle to find answers that support the peace they want to create in their post-pandemic lives.
Loneliness may be affecting you in ways that you never imagined. It can affect our health as negatively as obesity or smoking.
