NY Women Seeking Counseling & Therapy


Feeling Trapped in Her Own Life!


Depression and Anxiety

          

   Anxiety and Depression 

A common reason that women seek counseling and therapy is related to anxiety and depression.  If you are suffering from anxiety or depression, therapy can help. In my over 15 years of experience, I have helped many women work through and resolve their symptoms of anxiety and depression. 

According to the National Institute of Mental Health, more than 6 million Americans suffer with anxiety. Women suffer anxiety twice as often as men. Did you know that medication will not heal this condition? For some, it can help manage the symptoms. Also, it is worth noting that medication taken in conjunction with therapy offers no better results than psychotherapy alone. Studies repeatedly show that the best overall results are with process of therapy when done consistently.  For the best results, choose a therapist based on your own preference rather than being limited to only in-network providers listed on your insurance plan. (Click on: Does Therapy Work? page for the reference to the studies cited here.)
