Counseling

Since its inception in the early 1970s, CJE has been at the forefront of providing counseling services to older adults, their family members and caregivers.

CJE Counseling Services is staffed by a team of highly-skilled Licensed Clinical Social Workers (LCSWs) who are specialists in the field of mental health services for seniors.

Services are available as home or office visits.

CJE Counseling Services is dedicated to helping older adults:

  • Improve their mental and emotional health and well-being
  • Find more effective ways to manage the difficult life situations that can sometimes occur

Our Clinicians assist clients with:

  • Addressing symptoms of anxiety and depression
  • Grief and loss
  • Recovery from trauma
  • Changes in health and chronic illness
  • Transitions to retirement
  • Changes in relationships
  • Financial difficulties
  • Other stresses related to coping with the challenges of aging

We offer a full range of older adult behavioral health services:

  • Individual Supportive Counseling
  • Psychotherapy and Support Groups
  • Family and Caregiver Support
  • We work in conjunction with geriatric psychiatrists who may prescribe medications

Resilience is a concept that is getting a lot of attention in the field of gerontology as it clearly relates to the context of healthy aging. The ability to age gracefully and to be able to tolerate experiences of hardship and adversity are goals that most of us embrace.

Sometimes as people age, life gets easier. They can spend time with their grandchildren, or pursue hobbies. For some, though, life gets harder. How can one avoid becoming depressed? What are the warning signs of depression? When should one try self-help strategies and when does one need to reach out for help? If someone does decide to reach out, where should they turn and what can they expect? This talk will answer these questions and more!
