Therapists Specializing in Aging Related Concerns in Los Angeles

Although older adults can experience many of the same challenges as younger adults, the process of aging brings with it a set of unique issues that can affect our mental and physical health. It’s relatively normal to experience some changes in cognition as we age – memory loss is one example of a cognitive change that can affect an individual’s day-to-day life and impair one’s ability to regulate emotions. Relatively few older adults will experience more significant changes to their memory, thinking, and behavior that may warrant a diagnosis of dementia or Alzheimer’s disease.

In addition to cognitive changes later in life, our risk of developing health and physical problems increases as we age, and we more often must cope with the loss of friends or family. Adjusting to such losses and changes can be understandably distressing and can lead to mental health concerns, such as depression, anxiety, or sleep disturbance.

If you or a loved one is having difficulty adapting to the changes that come with aging, therapy can help. Seeking support from a trained therapist can help you better understand the unique challenges of aging and help with the development of coping skills and alternative perspectives. Many therapy modalities can be helpful for those dealing with aging concerns; art therapy, for instance, is an example of a modality that can be particularly helpful to those with cognitive impairments, as it does not rely on verbal communication. If you have been diagnosed with a neurological condition, such as dementia, you may benefit from seeking more specialized care from a clinician specifically trained in this area.

My approach is to start where you are at. Together we will build a partnership to identify goals; develop growth; build tools; and navigate stressful or confusing challenges. These may include issues such as loss, work stress, divorce, family concerns, and life transitions.

I’ll use evidenced based modalities such as, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), psychodynamic therapy and mindfulness based practices to help you increase awareness around certain behaviors, regulate emotions, create new ways of thinking and identify patterns.

I provide a nonjudgmental, supportive space where we can work together to create change in you life.

I want you to know that I love my work and look forward to collaborating with you. Psychotherapy is a hopeful endeavor. We will work together to understand your challenges and struggles and develop a path towards greater happiness and contentment in your life. You will have the opportunity to speak openly and honestly and be heard with empathy and respect.

It might help you to know that I have been a caretaker and understand the challenges. I also have three wonderful stepdaughters and can help you navigate the sometimes rocky road and eventually the joy of step parenting.

My clinical approach is flexible and will be based on what you need and feel comfortable with. Once we establish trust we will develop a plan to work together. Therapy can be brief or longer term depending upon your specific situation and needs. I enjoy using humor in our work as it can provide a fresh perspective on entrenched issues.

“Our feelings are our most genuine paths to knowledge.” - Audre Lorde

No matter the obstacle, there can be great power in harnessing our emotions and using them to navigate our journey in life. My work focuses on helping people fully connect with their emotions, manage the ups and downs of everyday life, and, ultimately, stay aligned with their ambitions. I use techniques backed by research, in combination with an understanding of your unique attributes, to develop a tailored plan for reaching your goals. My training in behavioral medicine also ensures that we acknowledge and incorporate the mind-body connection into our work. This might involve making changes to improve sleep, building awareness of how stress impacts us physically, finding balance through mindfulness exercises, or simply talking things out. If you have been thinking about making a change or feel unsure of how to move forward in your life, I invite you to reach out and see if this might be a good fit for you.

We all need to be seen, and heard, at any age. Being scared, anxious, or even depressed are sometimes part of being a person. Our fast-paced digital world can present unique challenges for our bodies and minds. I am happy to meet you wherever you are, and will approach each visit with a sense of compassionate curiosity. Just as we hunger for stories of other people to help guide us, you may wonder about your own story. Why are you here? What must you do with your life?

I work with adolescents (12+) through older, retired adults and specialize in issues of transition, anxiety, adjustment, depression, and vocation. I am not the expert in your life; you are. But sometimes we need help with perspective. Together, we will create a plan that will help you reduce the most difficult aspects of your life and help you determine how to move through them. What cannot be changed can be reviewed, understood, and ultimately, accepted.

Relationships can be very challenging and complicated both with others and ourselves. If you find yourself in a place questioning repetitive thoughts or feeling emotions that may be roadblocks for personal growth, therapy is an opportunity for you to explore and grow both personally and interpersonally. We are all made up of many parts and often times we have a couple parts of us, such as an angry part or anxious part, that we feel defined by. Often times these parts prevent us from living our truest and fullest selves. I promise to be fully present and committed in helping you understand these difficult parts and how they may be preventing you from feeling like yourself. I have a very interactive style and will work with you at a pace you are comfortable with to help you find peace and harmony with yourself and in your life.
