As a woman, you fulfill many roles, juggle competing priorities, and often feel like you need more time to complete your many tasks.

Trying to manage your life often times has you feeling like you are running on fumes.

The social pressures you experience daily may include:

 

These and other stresses may be part of your experience as a woman, and navigating them all can be tricky and even taxing on your well-being. When additional life challenges come your way, it may be enough to tip the balance and cause you to experience anxiety and depression.

 

Both men and women can experience things like anxiety and depression

But each gender tends to experience them differently. In fact, sometimes it’s trying to fit into gender roles that leaves us at odds with ourselves. Together, we can work through the issues that cause distress and practice skills that will help you effectively manage stress so you can be your best self.

 

 

Anxiety

Do you feel nervous about:

  • Being scrutinized or judged by friends, family, or coworkers?
  • Things that MIGHT happen to you or your loved ones?
  • Having panic attacks at the worst possible times?

 

We all experience some anxiety in our lives, whether it’s because money is tight, we’re under pressure at work, or we’re concerned for our loved ones. For some people, this nervousness makes it hard to enjoy life and causes them to avoid potentially enriching situations. It seems that no matter what they do, something will go wrong.

 

Millions of women have anxiety disorders such as Generalized or Social Anxiety, Panic Disorder, or Agoraphobia. We can help you differentiate between healthy stress levels and life-altering conditions, and guide you toward a happier, more relaxed you.

Depression

Are you feeling:

  • Sad?
  • Irritable?
  • Hopeless?
  • Unmotivated?
  • Disinterested?

 

Have these feelings lasted for two or more weeks? Do your feelings interfere with taking care of your family, work, or self-care?

 

If so, you’re not alone. More than 15.7 million adults experience depression each year.

How do you know if you’re anxious or Depressed?

It may seem like a simple question, but situational sadness and depression can feel very similar, just as normal levels of nervousness and anxiety can feel indistinguishable. Everyone goes through challenges in life that make us feel scared, upset, or angry. These emotions can tire us out and hurt our relationships.
