Aging is a natural process that may present challenges not only to one's physical health, but one’s mental health as well.  There may be feelings of loneliness as family members create new family systems or move away. Grief and loss is felt more frequently as loved one's own health deteriorates or distinguishes. Most adults experience stress as they approach and pass middle age, and the support of a mental health professional can help ease the transition into the next stage of life.

Aging is full of loss . . . loss of independence, identity, resources, health and many others. As the daughter of an elderly mom, I identify with the changes that she and my family have experienced and have worked with many others experiencing the same issues around aging.
