Therapy for Seniors

It’s difficult to think about aging and death in our society, and there are many transitions that impact seniors, their partners, and their families, including retirement, loss of a spouse, moving into assisted living, a health crisis, a new clinical diagnosis, or uncertainty over how to understand and approach any of these changes. Together we can create a safe space to discuss things that feel too frightening or taboo to talk about on your own. I welcome LGBTQ+ seniors or couples, and I’m happy to meet with your family members if you’d like help communicating with them.

I’m a Medicare provider, so if you’re a senior with both Medicare and a secondary insurance that pays your copay, your therapy will be entirely covered.

I am credentialed to provide home visits for psychotherapy with seniors at St. Paul's Towers in Oakland, and may be able to provide home visits for you under certain circumstances.

“I’d like a poster showing two old people with stooped backs and arthritic hands and time-worn faces sitting talking, deep, deep in conversation. And the slogan would be ‘Old Age Is Not for the Young’.”
