Midlife can be a tough time for women

    Say “midlife crisis” and images of men driving flashy sports cars and dating much younger women come to mind.

    But, midlife can also be a tough time for many women says psychologist Dr. Dan Gottlieb. He says many women feel like they “have played by the rules” and have fulfilled society’s expectations of them, and now feel unsure of what to do next.

    In his weekly conversation with Maiken Scott, he discusses how women handle the questions of “what now” and “what’s next.”
