Many women don’t know what to expect when they reach “a certain age.” To supply answers to burning questions, Bernardsville Public Library will host a talk by Brenda Forte, MSW, LCSW, on Tuesday, October 11 at 7:00 pm. Ms. Forte, a Bernardsville resident and psychotherapist with a practice in Morristown, will answer questions about peri-menopause and menopause to help women gain a better understanding of hormonal changes and symptoms at this time of life. While the program will be informative, participants will also be encouraged to share and use humor about this sometimes difficult period.
Ms. Forte received her MSW in 1987 and has been in private practice since 1991. She is a licensed clinical social worker and certified addiction specialist. Through the years, she has completed training in Short-Term Dynamic psychotherapy, addiction treatment, Hakomi (a mind/body psychotherapy), and is certified in Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing, She specializes in trauma, anxiety, depression, and grief issues and treats adults, teens and couples. In 1994, she became a founding partner of The Institute for Change with locations in Morristown and Montclair where adults, children and families can seek treatment.
