Wisdom Flows Counseling is being offered entirely by online video conference and telephone at this time.
Alice Forsyth is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who specializes in anxiety, depression, geriatric diseases, end-of-life transitional care, and loss and grief. She also provides geriatric care consultations with families and offers both in-person sessions and home visits.
While Alice sees adults across the lifespan, she loves working with older adults, families going through life transitions, including having kids going to college, and/or caring for older parents. She also has extensive experience working with women in their 30s who are figuring out what they want out of life, and young professionals who recently moved to the area and are trying to establish community and a support system.
Alice’s goal is to give her clients a space to be heard. This is especially important when working with older adults, who are navigating isolation, loneliness, and loss of resources. When meeting with new clients, she establishes where they are mentally, physically, and emotionally. She looks at their coping skills and the resources they have available to them, while also digging deep to discover the root causes of their issues.
Alice takes an eclectic approach that looks at the family system and how this impacts their clients’ well-being. She also implements elements of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) to ensure her clients have the tools and coping mechanisms to handle tough moments between sessions.
Alice wants her clients to feel empowered and in control of their lives, no matter their age. Before going into private practice, she was executive director of the local chapter of Rainbows in NJ, a grief and loss organization. She was also a clinical social worker in a large sub-acute and long-term healthcare facility, where she provided direct clinical case management for 135 residents and their families. She looks forward to meeting you.
