Supportive Therapy: Supportive therapy is aimed at those experiencing mild to moderate symptoms, oftentimes in reaction to the subtle and sometimes larger changes associated with aging such as moving out of one’s home, changes in physical functioning or mobility, or the loss of a loved-one.
Treatment for Depression: Depression treatment focuses on the changes in mood that depressed patients experience and the impact that this has on their overall well-being and functioning. Goals include reducing sadness and/or irritability, increasing positive feelings of well-being, helping with things like sleep or changes in appetite, and improving social functioning.
Treatment for Anxiety: Anxiety treatment focuses on combating symptoms of anxiety that can include, but are not limited to feelings of nervousness or worry, physical symptoms associated with anxiety, panic attacks and phobias.
Treatment for Those Diagnosed with Alzheimer’s and other Types of Dementia: Research has shown that early intervention and treatment for those diagnosed with dementia can have a large impact on the development of the disorder, as well short-term and long-term functioning and well-being. This includes processing the many feelings and emotions associated with receiving this diagnosis, helping individuals to plan and make decisions for their future, and teaching tools to cope with symptoms associated with these disorders, such as memory loss.
Therapy for Caregivers: Providing care for a sick spouse, parent, or loved can be associated with feelings of burden and strain and can disrupt one’s own sense of health, social functioning, and well-being. Treatment focuses on supporting the caregiver and helping them navigate the difficult balance between self care and caring for their loved one.
Consultation Services for Families: Much of the work we do centers around helping families to cope with changes associated with an aging parent or loved one. Consultation services provide families with the knowledge and tools needed to approach this time in the life of their family which often involves changes in member’s roles and responsibilities. Our goal is to help the family system age well.
