Normal age-related memory loss involves a noticeable decline in at least one area of thinking skills that’s greater than the changes of aging and less than changes associated with dementia. Depression and anxiety have been found to be one of the many causes of memory loss, so If you aren’t feeling like yourself, it’s time to get in touch with our therapists who can help you find the right treatment plan.
Depending on the severity of your memory loss, your therapist will determine the correct treatment plan. A therapist will support you through your negative feelings, pinpoint areas in your life that you may wish to change, help you set realistic goals, and give you tools to identify and prevent future bouts of anxiety and depression. Your therapist will custom-tailor your sessions to what you need at that moment.

Misplacing items in inappropriate places, such as putting a wallet in a kitchen drawer
Getting lost while walking or driving in a familiar area

If you are experiencing any combination of the above, a therapist can help. We’re here for you.
