What is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy?

There is a common misconception that menopausal symptoms, grief, depression and anxiety is treatable only with a variety of medications and stimulant solutions. While these are effective in reducing the severity of symptoms, they do not change behaviors. For women, especially those over the age of 45, this behavioral approach may be more effective.


When a woman suffers from

Anxiety, low mood and hot flashes  due to breast cancer or menopause, adjusting the way they think about their feelings and behavior can change the way they act. Understanding that the behavior is problematic and then knowing what to do to counteract detrimental actions are two big components of this kind of treatment, which has shown much promise in terms of effectiveness. Sometimes cognitive behavioral therapy for women is accompanied by medication in a more comprehensive treatment approach.

As one of the top Integrative Wellness coaches in Jackson, Kimberly believes that treatment is never black and white. There are varying shades to improving the colorful nature of a woman’s life. That is why she employs a variety of treatment methods, from behavior therapy to non-stimulant solutions to medication by a physician. Along the way, she reinforces the importance of strong family bonds, healthy eating, a consistent routine that includes being active and restful sleep. Treating the whole woman is essential to shaping positive attitudes, behaviors and health.
