GERIATRIC PSYCHOLOGY

A Safe Place For Seniors

Feeling lost and alone? Like you have no say or control over your life? Angry at your mind and body for changing? Looking for a sense of purpose? Individual therapy is a safe place to explore the changes in yourself and the world around you so that you can remain as independent as possible. Elderly depression and anxiety can manifest differently as we age, and may look like irritability, anger and confusion. Geriatric depression can also cause significant memory changes and deficits, impairing functioning.
