Geriatric Therapy Services
Basing my practice on a strengths perspective, I assist clients in identifying and activating their strengths and resilience as they move towards personal goals and address life challenges. I have experience working with young and older adults facing end-of-life, providing therapeutic services in residential, facility, and group home settings. I assist individuals, couples, and families with issues and adjustments related to the aging process, with a focus on affirming purpose and meaning. My approach is eclectic, informed by solution-focused therapy, narrative therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness, motivational interviewing, and strengths-based approaches. I strive to create a safe, respectful, and collaborative approach when working with clients.
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.
