Therapy for Anxiety and Stress
Anxiety is the most commonly experienced mental illness in our country, and women are twice as likely to suffer from generalized anxiety disorder as men (Facts and Statistics. Retrieved February 16, 2012, from http://www.adaa.org/about-adaapressroom/facts-statistics). Most women experience some kind of anxiety at some time in their lives. Even though it is the most common mental illness to experience, most people do not talk about it. Because of this, women often feel alone in their struggle with anxiety. Like depression, anxiety can take many forms and women may experience symptoms that range from mild to severe. Therapy can help women deal with everyday stress as well as long-term habits towards healthy living.
Anxiety and stress are natural responses to life’s challenges, but they can become overwhelming and interfere with our well-being. Women can experience these emotions differently, and they can manifest in various ways. Women may experience one or many of the following symptoms (Anxiety Disorders.

- Problems sleeping
