Geropsychiatry Program

Danielle Anderson, M.D.

The Geropsychiatry Program specializes in the evaluation and treatment of older adults. The clinicians in the program conduct comprehensive psychiatric evaluations and develop individualized treatment plans based on current, evidenced-based therapies. All the common psychiatric problems in the elderly, including memory problems, depression, anxiety, sleep disturbance, substance use disorders, sleep disorders and others, are assessed in a complete biopsychosocial manner. The Program is largely carried out in the outpatient setting, but inpatient hospitalization is available if appropriate. A full array of ancillary medical and neurological assessments is available where necessary. Treatment services include pharmacologic therapy, electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) as well as individual and family therapy.
