"Aging is not lost youth, but a new stage of opportunity and strength." -Betty Friedan (1921-2006)
We all understand aging is a part of life yet many individuals and families experience anxiety, worry and concern as the later years creep closer and closer. Aging impacts the whole family when there are changes in physical health, cognitive functioning, caregiving roles, and living arrangements...to name a few. Even anticipating the future can create feelings and and thoughts that distract you from enjoying your life today.
Although I do not have a crystal ball to know what will happen in the future, I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist who specializes in Gerontology (the study of aging) and can remove the mystery around this chapter many of us tend to avoid and discuss "next steps." Whether you would like to meet individually or as a couple/family, an appointment can be scheduled to discuss your concerns and receive the support, information, and resources to feel successful.
If you're looking for professional support and guidance through a challenging situation or you're just ready to begin the conversation with a professional who understands the roller coaster of life, please call or email me for an individual or family consultation today.
