Jennifer Welbel, LCPC
Narrative of Services:
My practice specializes in using cognitive behavior therapy to treat anxiety, OCD, and related disorders. I recognize that anxiety can be overwhelming, scary, and isolating. However, it is also treatable! As a cognitive behavior therapist, I provide research-supported and results-oriented treatment. I believe that how individuals think and behave directly affect how they feel. Therefore, I use a compassionate, collaborative, and direct approach to empower clients with the necessary skills to modify their irrational thoughts, confront their maladaptive fears, and decrease their overall anxiety.
Facilities accessible by clients of all mobility levels: Yes
I have extensive training and clinical experience in using CBT and exposure therapy to treat anxiety and obsessive-compulsive and related disorders. I received advanced training in exposure therapy at the Center for Anxiety and OCD at Alexian Brothers Behavioral Health Hospital and completed a postgraduate fellowship with the Cognitive Behavior Therapy program at The Family Institute at Northwestern University. Prior to starting the North Suburban Center for Anxiety, I created and supervised the OCD and Complex Anxiety Disorders treatment track at Compass Health Center. In addition to my clinical work, I served on the Scientific Advisory Board for Beyond OCD.
