Women’s Health Issues
Women and men have many of the same health problems, but they can affect women differently. Some conditions are specific to women such as pregnancy and menopause, and women are more prone to depression, osteoarthritis, and obesity. Let us help you deal with whatever is preventing you from leading a full and happy life.
"Red Hot Mamas!"
Menopause affects most women between the ages of 40-50 years old. While the signs and symptoms vary, most women experience depression, mood swings, weight gain, memory loss, sleeplessness, and the infamous “hot flashes”. We will provide you with the most up-to-date education about these issues and the effects these changes have on your emotions, thought processes, behavior, and sexuality. We can show you how to best manage your symptoms and help educate the loved ones in your life who may also be affected by these changes.
Some studies suggest that over 40 million Americans suffer from some form of sleep disorder that cause them distress and disrupt function in their daily lives. It is important to rule out a psychological cause verses an organic cause if you are suffering from disturbances in sleep. We can help you challenge the negative attitudes about your sleep disorder that you have developed over time, and to recognize self-defeating thoughts and replace them with positive and realistic ones.
Vocation / Career Assessment
If you are looking for career direction our vocational testing may be the tool you need to make a more informed choice regarding the direction your professional life has taken. Assessments can help define your bright future by highlighting your professional strengths and weaknesses. Once these areas have been identified we can guide you onto the most productive and satisfying career path possible.
