I found peace, comfort, and acceptance, and gained control of my life. The disorder and anxiety weren’t controlling me anymore."
- Mindy, former client
Critical life changes, grief, depression, mood instability, eating disorders, unhealthy relationships, and traumatic events are some of the most common reasons why women seek counseling.
Women also tend to nurture and take care of everyone but themselves. They will often stay strong for the sake of their children and families, forsaking their own well-being. Inevitably, life becomes unmanageable.
Women of all ages are twice as likely as men to suffer from anxiety and depression. Consider that in the U.S.:
One in four females is sexually abused by the time she is 18 years old.
Annually, ~4.8 million women experience physical violence and rape by intimate partners.
Women still continue to face many forms of discrimination and sexual harassment in the workforce and on college campuses.
Despite these facts, hundreds of women each year regain their strength and overcome adversity through counseling at Samaritan. And so can you.
