Welcome to Ascend Therapy for Anxiety, Depression & Stress

Incessant intrusive and obsessive thoughts can be debilitating and affect quality of life- not just for the person experiencing them but their loved ones as well.

Hi my name is Sara Banks an I am a psychotherapist and owner of Ascend Therapy located in Naperville. Our practice specializes in treating anxiety, depression, stress and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) . We also specialize in helping people with marriage and family counseling.

My co-therapist, Psychologist Jonathan Woodin and I both work at Linden Oaks (part of Edward-Elmhurst Hospital) in the anxiety program. This program was the first to be awarded the Gold Seal of Approval and Disease-Specific Certification by the Joint Commission for its commitment to excellence in the treatment of anxiety.

We have helped hundreds of clients cope with a wide array of mental health challenges and life stressors using a variety of treatment options, including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) &  Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT).

We believe that everyone is unique as are the difficulties that bring them to therapy and as such we adjust to your individualized needs.
