Individual Psychotherapy–We meet with our clients for 60-minute sessions on a regular basis (usually once a week) for an average of 4-15 months. We meet with our clients in their home (or assisted living community) and use a variety of therapeutic modalities such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Grief Therapy, Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR), Motivational Interviewing, Narrative Therapy, and more.

Group Psychotherapy and Classes–We provide ongoing psychosocial support to groups in independent living, assisted living communities, community centers, and churches. This service is usually paid for by the sponsoring community or organization with no cost to the attendees.
Geriatric Forensic Services–We provide consultations for older adults, families and attorneys concerned about mental health issues in older adults, capacity, elder abuse and exploitation, undue influence, involuntary commitment, need for guardianship/conservatorship, contested guardianships, and other legal issues facing older adults.
Involuntary Commitment Evaluations–As LCSWs, we are authorized to complete an order for the involuntary transportation of someone to an emergency receiving facility for a mental evaluation. This is known as the 1013 process, and families can hire Mindful Transitions to evaluate their loved one who may need inpatient psychiatry treatment and crisis stabilization.

Family Care Counseling–Mindful Transitions conducts assessments and 3 family sessions to discuss care needs and care planning. This service is most helpful for families that have a hard time communicating about elder care needs.
Transition Counseling–For individuals that have just moved from their home to an independent living community or assisted living community, some of those communities hire Mindful Transitions to provide 4 1-hour sessions of support to ease the transition into the new community.
Family-Based Therapy for Dementia Caregiving–Mindful Transitions provides family therapy to both caregivers and care-receivers as a family unit to address the needs and emotions of both and to enhance communication for this new relationship. Our focus will be on the family, not just one individual, as all are impacted by dementia.
Private Practice Consulting Services–Licensed Clinical Social Workers, Marriage and Family Therapists, and Licensed Professional Counselors interested in starting an individual or group psychotherapy practice can contract with Mindful Transitions’s owner, Laura Jalbert, to develop and execute a plan for a successful private practice.
