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
