Therapists Specializing in Aging Related Concerns in New Jersey

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.

The message that I have seen throughout my career is that life is not a straight line. It is often filled with “curve balls” that are unsettling resulting in feelings of worry, concern, being overwhelmed and uncertain.

Having been a psychologist for 30 years, I draw from many areas of experience and training to help you navigate these curve balls by working to develop the necessary skills to reclaim one’s balance in life.

My therapeutic methodology is to use a combination of a mind-body, cognitive-behavioral and eclectic approaches to treat depression, mood, anxiety and personality disorders, as well as, assisting in navigating life’s challenges such as grief, loss and emotional upheaval.

I work with individuals across the adult developmental lifespan providing one-on-one, group, and couples counseling.

I'm a caring and direct psychologist with a speciality in sleep disorders. I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I) to help you to get the sleep your body needs. CBT-I is a rapid and effective treatment. In fact, 85% of CBT-I clients will increase their sleep by at least 1 hour with as little as 4-8 sessions. Stop letting your worries or your medications dictate your sleep. Let's work together so you can reclaim ownership of your sleep.

I also offer treatments for the issues underlying sleep disturbance including depression, anxiety, trauma, addiction and other mind/body health challenges. I use compassion and support to help you understand your problems, and I provide concrete coping skills and evidence based tools to help you manage these problems outside of sessions.

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.
