Baby Boomers / Older Adults

Baby Boomers / Older Adults

Are you a baby boomer or older adult trying to cope with life challenges?

 

Therapy with Dr. Marc Shulman may be helpful if you are a baby boomer / older adult who needs assistance with:

  • Seeking new experiences and opportunities for growth
  • Feelings of loneliness or sadness
  • Coping with the loss of loved one
  • “Empty nest syndrome” (where children have moved away)
  • Coping with chronic health issues
  • Transitioning away from work life and into retirement
  • Stress management
  • Conflict in your significant relationships

 

The transition to becoming an older adult brings with it new opportunities for self-actualization as well as new struggles that you have not had to encounter in the past. This unfamiliar territory can sometimes create feelings of anxiety or depression that can be challenging, even for someone who has amassed wisdom through various life experiences. It may feel like life has suddenly changed and it can be disorienting when circumstances are not the way they used to be. This can range from having to become accustomed to a new routine, to feeling less physically capable than in the past, to significant change or loss of relationships. However, research indicates that older people are significantly happier than younger people. This is primarily because as one ages they develop a more holistic perspective that allows them to draw on their experiences and feel less overwhelmed by the vicissitudes of life. Becoming older does not have to mean being less satisfied with life.

Therapy for baby boomers / older adults can help to:

  • Clarify goals
  • Cope with depression and anxiety
  • Deal with loss and relationship changes
  • Adjust to having more free time
  • Face mortality
  • Achieve more relaxation
  • Cope with physical challenges
  • Increase life satisfaction

 

The therapy that Dr. Marc Shulman offers utilizes a unique approach called Dynamic Experiential Learning (DEL), which is designed to help you achieve more satisfaction from life. Please read more about this on the My Approach page.
