Anxiety is more than just feeling worried or stressed. It’s a complex mental health condition characterized by persistent, excessive worry and fear. That being said, anxiety doesn’t present the same way for everyone. There are several types of anxiety disorders, including generalized anxiety disorder, panic disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), and social anxiety disorder. Each type has unique symptoms and triggers, but all can significantly impair one’s quality of life. care, respect, and confidentiality as you navigate your path to recovery.

Thus, we offer specialized anxiety treatment specifically tailored to women.

Here are some of the key benefits of gender-specific treatment:

Caring for Co-Occuring Disorders

Women are more than twice as likely as men to suffer from anxiety disorders – but that comes as no surprise when you understand the experience of being a woman. At Grace & Emerge, we treat anxiety as both a mental health struggle in itself and as a symptom of the disconnection, lack of identity, and pains that women can suffer from in our world today without help and support. Anxiety is commonly a co-occurring mental health disorder, meaning that its symptoms in young women are often indivisible from symptoms of other mental health problems or disorders that affect them. 

Anxiety & Depression

Studies show that up to 60% of people who suffer from debilitating anxiety also struggle with co-occurring depression. Though we don’t know exactly how the two interact in someone’s brain, we understand that the fear, trauma, and pressure of being a woman in our society can be daunting – and when anxiety makes it even harder to function, the inability to keep up with life or face countless fears can lead to losing the will to live, feelings of hopelessness, deep shame, and persistent sadness and emptiness in someone’s life. At Grace & Emerge, we heal both from the inside out so you can find your new life.

Anxiety & Disordered Eating

Women often turn to disordered eating, either knowingly or unknowingly, as a way of controlling and regulating other mental health issues that they don’t have a healthy outlet or coping mechanism to handle. Studies show that over 50% of adults who meet the criteria for an eating disorder also struggle with a major co-occuring mental health issue like anxiety or depression. Recovery from both is possible – by regaining the connection, community, and inner peace that allows young women to find their own healing and a path to real recovery.

Anxiety & Substance Use

Young women are more likely than any other demographic to begin substance use as a coping mechanism – and more likely to struggle with addiction in silence and secret. Whether substance use or anxiety came first, they are indivisibly linked in most women’s lives as they carry the burden of shame, social stigmas, and fear of addiction’s impact on their life. We treat mental health disorders like anxiety and substance use with a dual-diagnosis approach because we know one can’t be healed without the other.
