Geriatric Therapy Services
I view clients in geriatric settings from a systems and comprehensive approach. I work as a team member of the facility, work with family members, and gather information to support the resident both individually and in the facility setting. I use cognitive behavioral therapy, problem solving, and mindfulness as my therapeutic approaches. I have worked as a school social worker and in clinical private practice with clients from a diversity of backgrounds including race, religion, and sexual preference. I use compassion and support client directed goals as a center point of my practice.
To expand and improve our care options for clients, ACP offers Telehealth (phone or video) appointments. Telehealth uses phone or video conferencing to connect you with highly qualified and experienced providers in real-time from the comfort and convenience of your own home or office. Before your telehealth appointment, you will receive details for how you will connect with your provider. If you will be connecting via phone, the provider will plan to call you at your scheduled appointment time. Please be ready to take the call and also check that your phone allows calls from blocked numbers (accessible within your phone settings). If you will be connecting via video conference, your provider will email you an invite to join the appointment. Please call our office to learn more about ACP’s telehealth services and to schedule an appointment.
