Good mental health helps us enjoy life more, handle difficult situations, and stay connected to family, friends, and our community.
Good mental health helps us keep our bodies strong, decrease hospitalizations, stay active, and live independently.
As we get older, we go through many life changes: the death of loved ones, retirement, health concerns, and other stressful life events.
It’s normal to feel uneasy, stressed, or sad about these changes. You might want to talk with someone if you are also experiencing:
Our counselors can help you move through life changes that are troubling you.
In addition to our mental health services, we offer other support for older adults who want to remain in their homes - healthy, safe, and secure. These programs include chore services, transportation, Meals on Wheels, and other support.
PEARLS, the Program to Encourage Actice, Rewarding LiveS, is designed especially to teach older adults skills they can use to stay engaged with the people and activities they enjoy.
PEARLS empowers people through behavioral techniques to actively manage depression and improve their quality of life.
PEARLS is a community-based treatment program for older adults with depression. You will learn the skills necessary to move into action and make lasting changes customized to your needs.
A trained PEARLS Counselor will meet with you for 8 sessions, Sessions are available over the phone, on-line, or in-person.
Fees are determined by program and will be discussed with you. We accept most major insurances including Medicare and Medicaid. Depending on your insurance coverage, we can meet with you in your own home, through telehealth, or in our comfortable offices.
Self-determination is important for me. People choosing their own way and their own path is key. It’s important that individuals have time to talk about what brought them here for services and their hopes. I particularly like to focus in on hopes – what is it that you want to see.
Trusting is important to the relationship. I want to walk alongside people creating a safe space where they feel they can share their story freely. I strongly believe that individuals need to follow their own pace in building a therapeutic relationship, thus ensuring their readiness to do the work.
Humor is important and being able to find those moments with humor is useful in relationships and can be validating.
Being an older adult myself, I understand the challenges that come with the aging process. I am honored to offer mental health services to this population.
