Anhedonia, or the experience of losing interest in some of the activities that used to excite us, is an important, and sometimes overlooked, mental health concern in senior citizens, and as many as 1/3 of older adults experience symptoms of this loss of motivation. Anxiety and depression sometimes accompany Anhedonia, so if you aren’t feeling like yourself, it’s time to get in touch with someone who understands, and our therapists are here to help.
Depending on the severity of your loss of motivation, 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.
