Older Adult Clinic

We provide full evaluation and treatment to older adults with an array of psychiatric conditions who do not require hospitalization. Diagnostic evaluation, psychotherapy, and medication evaluation and management are available to help patients cope with problems, such as depression, anxiety, substance abuse, or difficulty with managing losses and transitions.

Memory Disorders Assessment Clinic

This clinic specializes in the evaluation, treatment and follow-up of outpatients who have mild to moderate memory impairments. During two to three half-day sessions, patients receive thorough psychiatric, neuropsychological, psychosocial, and neurological evaluations. Diagnostic and treatment recommendations are discussed with the patient, care providers and family members as appropriate.

SAGE: Successful Aging through Group Engagement

SAGE is an enhanced outpatient program for older adults with major depression, bipolar disorder, anxiety disorders, paranoid disorders, and psychotic disorders. Typical treatment at SAGE includes psychotherapy group and individual counseling as well as other group and individual meetings. Patients meet frequently with a psychiatrist to discuss medication.
