We were told that menopause is a natural process that occurs when a woman's menstrual cycle stops. But no one told us about the emotioanal challengelles that menopause and perimenopuase would bring for us.
Menopause it's a significant transition that can be accompanied by a variety of physical and emotional changes. Many women experience hot flashes, chages in their body fat, memory loss, vaginal dryeness, low libido, etc. During menopause, many of us experience mood changes, including irritability, anxiety, and depression. Psychotherapy can provide a safe and supportive space to discuss these symptoms and develop strategies to manage them.
I can help you to identify negative thought patterns and behaviors and replace them with more positive ones. Mindfulness-based therapy can also be helpful in teaching you to be present in the moment and develop a greater sense of self-awareness. Talk to your OB/ GYN about Hormonal Replacement Therapy (HRT) ,and if it is right for you. Many of us that use HRT feel significantly better and almost symtom free.
