Geriatric Therapy Services
I have a strong passion for the field of gerontology and have devoted my entire career to working with older adults. Using elements of strengths-based, cognitive behavioral, mindfulness and solution focused approaches, I partner with my clients to improve their coping ability related to a variety of stressors, losses and transitions, as well as make progress toward their identified mental health goals. My current practice centers upon working with older adults in long term care, short term rehab, memory care and assisted living settings. I also provide consultation to staff in these settings and help develop behavioral interventions to improve the quality of life and emotional well being of our shared clients.
When I am not working with older adults, you can find me running, walking around the Minneapolis lakes with my dog, or spending time with family.
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.
