The goal of our Older Adult Therapy Programs is to provide a supportive environment where participants can address issues of concern and maintain their independence. Many older adults use their time with us to share thoughts about their day-to-day lives, to reminisce about the past and speculate about the future, or to process their various losses, including those of loved ones, health, income and independence.
Therapy services are provided by mental health trainees and registered associates who are trained in geriatric mental health, grief, and crisis intervention and are supervised by licensed mental health professionals.
On-Site Therapy for Adults 65 Years of Age and Older
For those older adults who are able to come to our North Oakland office, individual, couples, and family therapy are available. On-Site counseling services are provided on a sliding scale, and no one will be turned away for lack of funds. On average, people pay $20-$30 for individual, on-site therapy.
Payments can be made easily through our payment page, and QR codes provided on-site to help link to payment options.
In-Home Therapy for Adults 65 Years of Age or Older
Our Older Adult In-Home Therapy Program provides in-home counseling to home-bound and/or socially isolated older adults who would benefit from weekly counseling and who otherwise would not have access to mental health services. There is no fee for In-Home Counseling services. Donations are accepted but not required to receive services.
Donations can easily be made through our payment page.
