Senior Psychotherapy

The elderly population in this country is often overlooked when it comes to mental health issues. Many times symptoms are simply attributed to the aging process, but research shows that psychotherapy is as effective for older adults as for younger people. Some of the areas we focus on in treating seniors include restoration of self-worth, improved self-esteem, dealing with loss, and coping with aging and illness. There can also be transitional traumas related to moving away from their homes and their children or into an assisted living type of environment. The transitions may be beneficial in preventing isolation and providing needed care, but present multiple losses and grief issues that fall upon the children of the elders leaving them feeling guilty, tired, and frustrated. We specialize in transitional losses due to aging and can help our seniors and their families. Through our treatment process older clients will benefit from a heightened feeling of being understood, valued, and connected.
