Depression and anxiety are among the common mental health complaints of both people with Parkinson’s and their families. Cognitive behavioral therapy can help patients learn to live better by teaching techniques that can help patients live better.
- Individual Counseling
These sessions provide a private and confidential environment for discussion of issues that may be difficult to discuss with doctors, loved ones, or even in support groups. Therapists will help clients to express, understand and explore non-motor symptoms, as well as learn effective, research based strategies for managing these symptoms in order to live a happier, healthier life, both mentally and physically.
- Family Counseling
Couples and families face unique problems and these sessions provide a safe and comfortable space for couples and/or families to discuss interpersonal issues. Sessions are aimed at understanding how family dynamics impact psychological health and developing tools to strengthen family relationships.
At this time, the Parkinson’s Association is not accepting new patients. We encourage people affected by Parkinson’s who are struggling with non-motor symptoms to seek help from a qualified therapist elsewhere.
