Seeking therapy is a courageous decision of choosing ‘you’. I recognize the significance of choosing therapy in vulnerability, and I feel passionate about walking alongside individuals on their journey of healing and growth. Each person’s experiences and emotions are unique, and as a therapist, I recognize that this individuality is a vital tool in healing. I partner with my clients to unveil and process their unique emotions in an empathetic, safe, and non-judgmental approach. Therapy is not only a passion of mine; most importantly, it is an honor.

I often work with patients to examine longstanding difficulties, both with others and within their own selves. Such patterns often leave people feeling misunderstood, empty, lost, unheard, unseen, taken advantage of, stuck, angry, or resentful. Feeling this way can leave you feeling disconnected from and distrusting of others; even those who you love and want to feel close to. Many times, these pieces can be extremely difficult and even can feel impossible to share. And that's okay. We will work together to address what feels important to you and at your pace.

Greetings! The hardest thing to do in this world is to live in it. Reaching out for help can feel risky or daunting, especially as life changes around you. Days of seeing what feels "normal" change from moment to moment, experiencing losses and transitions (both welcome and unwelcome), and trying to figure out where you fit in your own story brings on all sorts of Big Emotions. You might feel anxious about navigating another hardship, or depressed at how things have changed. You may be feeling guilt or relief at a big life shift in an unexpected way. How do you process it all and keep going?

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.
