I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC) and devout Catholic. It is my dream to incorporate my faith in a direct way through my work with clients. Although I am passionate about my faith and combining it in practice, my goal is to allow the client to dictate where they are in the spiritual and emotional journey. The most successful therapy takes place when clients are able to be vulnerable, and express their needs honestly in treatment. I specialize in working with adolescents; however, I also work with children, adults and families. My background involves work with trauma, family issues, anxiety, depression, and attachment.

Hi! My name is Lauren and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I specialize in young adults and adults seeking assistance to work through anxiety, depression, major life changes, grief, relationship challenges, and stress. I believe therapy allows you to navigate your thoughts, feelings, and emotions with the assistance of an outsider's point of view. This can be very beneficial so you can gain perspective from someone who doesn't know anything about the situation besides what you want to share.

Alzheimer's Therapists

What are the first-line treatment options for Alzheimer’s disease?

The first-line treatment for Alzheimer’s disease is often medication, which may be prescribed based on the severity of the disease. These include cholinesterase inhibitors, memantine, or a combination of the two. Behavioral treatments can help people cope with emotional distress, such as anxiety or anger, and explore lifestyle changes related to housing, caregiving, sleep, and finances.

When to seek treatment for Alzheimer’s?

It’s best to seek treatment at the first signs of dementia. Early warning signs of Alzheimer’s include memory problems, such as forgetting appointments or directions, as well as trouble concentrating, paying attention, retrieving words, and carrying out daily household tasks. An early diagnosis can help people slow the progression of the disease with treatment and plan for the future in terms of housing, support, finances, and legality.

Are there specific medications to treat Alzheimer’s?

Medications approved by the FDA to manage symptoms of Alzheimer’s include galantamine, rivastigmine, and donepezil for mild to moderate Alzheimer’s, and memantine, donepezil, and the rivastigmine patch for moderate to severe Alzheimer’s. These drugs can help manage the disease, but no drug currently cures the disease. Medications recently approved by the FDA, such aducanumab and lecanemab may slow the disease course, but aspects of their effectiveness are still debated.

Are there natural treatments for Alzheimer’s?

Alzheimer’s disease cannot be cured via natural remedies (nor via medication), but some lifestyle habits can help forestall it or slow its progression. Lifestyle activities that can help prevent Alzheimer’s disease include regular exercise, a healthy, well-rounded diet, stimulating cognitive activity, time spent socializing, adequate sleep, and stress management as needed.
