Lenore Pomerance Menopause Counseling
homeabout Lenoreuseful informationarticlesnewsroom

Welcome to my Web site. My intention is to give women and men the opportunity to share and receive not only information but also experiences of our midlife transition. I am a licensed clinical social worker bringing to the field of menopause my twenty-five years of experience as a psychotherapist and counselor, medical social worker, and community activist.

I believe that the midlife transition presents to women and men the challenges of adolescence tempered by the self-knowledge of rich life experiences.

Today we are faced with more lifestyle choices than ever before:

  • working in the home or a traditional workplace
  • marriage or single living
  • traditional health care and/or alternative treatments
  • a myriad of creative spiritual and physical outlets

    These increased options have complicated the task of choosing what works for the individual in mid-life. Aging is a natural process, yet often the only education we get is financial planning for retirement. Other issues of mid-life change - body image, the "biological clock" and the cessation of fertility, "hot flashes" and other symptoms of perimenopause, male and female sexual vitality, the "empty nest syndrome" when the children have left home, the role of caregiver to elderly relatives - these are all complex middle age issues that require knowledge, support, and a confidential setting to share our intimate feelings with our spouse or partner, a professional trained in family therapy, and each other. I hope this Web site, a reflection of my counseling center in Washington, D.C., will provide this and more for you.
