Older adults often face a unique set of psychiatric and mental health issues as they age. Coping with medical illness, family issues, social and environmental concerns, and changes in health and function can contribute to depression, emotional or psychiatric problems.
Often as adults progress in years, they notice changes in their memory and may experience memory problems. Memory impairment is common and occurs often as a result of a brain injury, Alzheimer’s type of dementia, or depression. Even people in generally good health sometimes experience subtle memory impairment. We offer cognitive exercise programs to help you enhance your memory. By working closely with you we will develop an individualized training program designed to suit your needs. Some of this training involves computer based memory exercises and neurofeedback.
Besides treating memory disorders, we also work effectively with:
- Anxiety disorders
- Chronic pain
- Inability to concentrate
We recognize that older adults have specialized emotional and social needs, and we provide a range of clinical services geared toward addressing these needs. Just a few of the services we offer are:
- Individual psychotherapy
- Family therapy
- Cognitive Rehabilitation
- Biofeedback & Neurofeedback
