A 24-year-old female asked:

Tired and moody?: Fatigue and dysphoric feelings can be caused by many things. People with these symptoms should first get a good physical exam by their primary care doctor. Then, if there's no medical basis for the problem they should ask for a referral to a good doctor of psychology for psychotherapy.
A 31-year-old female asked:

Anxiety?: Anxiety is the common cold of psychological disorders. One common first intervention for anxiety problems is exercise. Getting 30 minutes of vigorous exercise such as brisk walking, running, or swimming 5 times a week can be as effective as psychotherapy! a variety of types of psychotherapy are available that very effectively treat symptoms of anxiety. Get thee to a good psychologist!
A 25-year-old female asked:

Sleep problems?: Sleep medications are only temporary fixes for sleep disorders. Sometimes a sleep lab can be helpful in diagnosing the nature of sleep problems but my experience is that psychological approaches usually work effectively. I encourage patients to read the book no more sleepless nights by peter hauri and shirley linde as the treatment approach is effective, safe, and widely accepted.
