Mental Health Therapy

Perhaps you’re having a hard time adjusting to retirement or caring for a loved one. Maybe you’re dealing with changes in your physical or mental abilities. Or, as friends, spouses, partners, and family members pass away, you might need help with feelings of grief or isolation.

Iona’s team of compassionate licensed clinical social workers understand these challenges and are available for individual sessions to help you address your anxieties or fears, find new sources of enjoyment and meaning in your life, connect to support systems, and learn new ways to communicate your emotions in a healthy and positive way.

Caregivers and other family members can also benefit from therapy to talk openly about their fears, anxieties, and stresses associated with caretaking and learn more about community resources.

Through a collaborative approach, we use a variety of techniques to help you address:

  • Feelings of depression or anxiety
  • Difficulties dealing with memory loss, a medical condition, or increased dependence on others
  • Grief and loss
  • Transitioning to retirement
  • Adjusting to a change in roles or responsibilities in a relationship
  • Caregiving stress

Good Faith Estimate

You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your health care will cost. Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have certain types of health care coverage, or who are not using certain types of health care coverage, an estimate of their bill for health care items and services before those items or services are provided.
