Who is DASC?

We are a team of highly skilled professionals who have dedicated our lives to meeting the mental health needs of our communities in Chicago. Too many people suffer needlessly with treatable conditions, such as Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD), Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Eating Disorders, Social Anxiety, and Major Depressive and Bipolar Disorders. It is our mission to make the highest quality care available to all members of our community. We are an inclusive environment, welcoming people from all walks of life and every background.


DASC is proud to be the Chicago regional clinic with The National Social Anxiety Center (NSAC). NSAC was established with the intent of making the highest quality, evidence-based psychotherapy services to treat social anxiety available to those in need. We aim to do this through research, collaboration, dissemination to clinicians and educating the public. Visit NSAC here for more information.



DASC’s highly trained clinical team has a diverse array of clinical specialties and interests. We are experts in teaching and applying CBT to a wide range of issues.  Our dedicated team now serves over 200 people every week at DASC.
