Individual Psychotherapy

As a person ages, it is important to have support.  Significant changes can have a major impact on a senior's attitude, energy level and mental health.

These changes and adjustments often include:

  • Retirement
  • A move to a new senior community or other setting
  • Changes in one’s own health
  • End of life issues  
  • Death of a loved one

Counseling with a skilled therapist who specializes in issues relevant to older adults can help individuals identify, understand, and work through their emotional responses to major life transitions.
