I work with the age groups of children, teenagers, young adults, adults, and older adults.
Life can be intimidating especially in an ever changing world of technology, opinions, and expectations. Instead bearing the stress by yourself, I can assist you. I will utilize my skills to genuinely listen and empathize while creating a safe environment from a non judgement viewpoint to reach your individual goals. I will work with you on understanding your strengths and social systems to holistically assist with balancing life stressors. This will empower you to make your voice be heard as a step towards your personal development.

I often see clients who have found that prior therapy did not go deep enough or that they can talk about their issues but remain stuck in the same unhealthy patterns. I help clients get beneath words and to transform the deeper feelings and emotions that are driving such patterns. I also have considerable experience working with loss, chronic illness, depression and anxiety, career and relationship transitions, questions of identity/purpose, relationship conflict, and navigating academic and creative work.

They may be in the midst of a crisis of trauma, family disruption, chronic illness, aging or abuse. Together we look at all of it with 'kind eyes' and without judging. Often we can identify patterns, beliefs and experiences to heal or release that have led to setbacks in the past. They want support in developing or recovering their joy, confidence, self-worth and personal strengths. Clients can evolve toward their own vision of wholeness.

Do you find yourself stressed managing all that life throws your way? The worry, overwhelm, and panic feels never ending. The stress may be from external or internal pressure, a life transition, or the death of a loved one. On the outside you look like you have it all together but on the inside you're crumbling; not feeling like you. Living between these two worlds is exhausting and all you want is a moment of relief. In counseling we will work together to create lifelong change so that getting through the day is less exhausting and more energizing.

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.
