I was blessed with talented trainers, gifted post-grad supervisors and diverse work experiences ranging from adoption, substance abuse, hospitals, the elderly and folks with the inevitable problems life presents.
My goal is to provide a comfortable environment to help people "Say Everything". My special talent is helping people talk freely. I encourage humor and sometimes even fun: it can make the seemingly intolerable more easily managed. I have a genuine respect for my patients. This work is an honor. My training as a psychotherapist began as a child, listening as my parents and their friends talked about jobs; marriage, children, aging parents, etc. This has led to a lifelong fascination with human relationships and the workings of individual minds and hearts. Home visits available when necessary.

I’m passionate about helping adolescents, adults, and the elderly heal their hearts. Although there’s differences, I strongly believe that we’re all driven by an innate need to fill a true sense of worth, value, and identity. I’ve found more times than not that past hurts and traumas, negative talk, criticalness, and rejection especially in the early years tend to not only fracture our sense-of-self but propel us to continue to experience even more hurt, pain, failed relationships, loneliness, and unfulfillment. Is this affecting you personally and professionally? I can also help men with ‘men issues’.

Geriatric and Seniors Therapists

Is one ever too old for mental health therapy?

Individuals of all ages can benefit from mental health therapy. Indeed, older adults in particular may benefit from the social and psychological support a therapist can provide; the topics that older adults address in therapy may simply differ from those of younger clients. Seniors should seek out a therapist who has experience working with older individuals and who is well-versed in addressing common concerns among elderly individuals, such as depression, anxiety, loneliness, dementia, and physical mobility challenges.

How can geriatric therapy improve the quality of life of aging individuals?

Therapy for aging adults can greatly improve quality of life by providing an opportunity for them to process difficult emotions related to end-of-life, navigate relational or caregiver challenges, and develop coping skills for common mental health conditions, like anxiety or depression. Subsequent reductions in negative emotions and mental health disorder symptoms can make day-to-day living much more manageable for aging adults and those that care for them. The ongoing relationship with a trusted therapist can also help seniors combat loneliness and provide a sense of structure for their routine.

How is counseling for elderly different from counseling for other age groups?

Many aspects of geriatric counseling are similar to counseling in younger age groups; in general, counseling offers an opportunity for clients to process difficult life events and develop coping skills they can use outside of the therapy session. However, therapists who specialize in working with elderly clients may place a special emphasis on specific topics, such as caregiver relationships and reducing loneliness. They may be specially equipped to deal with certain physical conditions or facilitate discussion surrounding end-of-life topics. Counseling for the elderly may also place a greater emphasis on social work-type topics to ensure that geriatric clients have access to necessary resources, such as food, a safe home environment, and healthcare.

Can geriatric counseling help people who suffer from dementia?

Counseling can be highly effective for aging adults with dementia. While some therapists specializing in dementia may work with clients solely on topics surrounding memory loss, they can also assist clients with conditions that may co-occur at old age, such as anxiety or depression. Counselors specializing in working with older adults can also offer an objective assessment of a client’s functioning or disease progression to caregivers, and they may be particularly knowledgeable about community resources that may benefit dementia clients and their families. Therapists specializing in dementia may also be trained in specialized forms of therapy for memory-loss|memory loss, such as Cognitive Stimulation Therapy (CST)—which can help mentally stimulate dementia clients to preserve cognitive functioning.
