Our senior years have long been referred to as the “golden years.”  However, for many people this phase of life presents many new and complex issues in a time of life that we hoped would be golden.

  • Becoming a caregiver to a loved one
  • Coping with life alone for the first time
  • Finding your identity post career
  • Experiencing marital challenges

Our therapists are here to help you navigate these challenges and address many of the following issues:

Counseling

Addiction

Our goal is to help you assess your need for addiction services by determining the level of care that best fits you. Our addiction specialists provide assessments, education, support, intervention, therapy, recovery planning, and accountability.

Alcoholism (Family Members)

Usually, when one member of the family has an issue with alcoholism or addiction, other family members discover that they need help as well. Working together as a couple or family can motivate the recovering person to put added effort into their recovery and bring healing to other family members.

Alcoholism (Individual)

The first step to creating a solid plan for recovery begins with an initial assessment that includes a thorough history and diagnosis. We encourage a comprehensive treatment plan, and depending on the intensity of care needed, our addiction specialists will provide out-patient counseling or help with the referral process to an in-patient facility when needed.

Controlling your anger can feel easier said than done, and at times, it can seem like it has control over you. Anger management therapy can help take control of angry emotions and develop healthy ways of managing your anger.
