Family Support for Aging Adults Group - Start Date TBD

Life is about balance. It is difficult to remember that when you are the anchor for your aging parents and your growing children. If you are caring for your kids and parents and hold the responsibilities for their functioning and wellbeing, then chances are there is little time to care for yourself. We can help to support your needs and teach you ways to integrate taking care of your awesome responsibilities and taking care of your awesome self. BZA therapist Jennifer Menegon has worked with all different cognitive levels of the aging population. She has also worked with their family members with understanding and compassion for many years. Jenny has seen the changes in healthcare and mental health and how challenging it is to manage the lives of aging parents all the while trying to make the best decisions for one's self, children, and family. This role is one you cannot prepare for. It is a great challenge and can be downright exhausting at times. Come to our 7-week group to learn with others that are facing these issues. We will help process your experience, offer some psycho education and come up with ways to find self care and mindfulness in the midst of our busy lives. Contact BZA via phone or email to confirm participation.


Group/Individual Clinical Supervision & Consultation

BZA is proud to offer clinical supervision and consultation (individual and group formats) for counselors, therapists and school clinicians who could benefit from a collaborative discussion of challenging cases and best practices from our team of highly trained and experienced professionals. The open-attendance group format will include 3-4 fellow mental health professionals from varying backgrounds from whom you can gain insights, both clinical and business. For those working towards licensure, (LCSW/LCPC) you can also gain hours to sit for your clinical examination. Hone your skills and grow as a practitioner by learning new techniques and coping skills used by BZA's therapists. BZA believes in life-long learning and our therapists' broad range of interests and expertise will help increase your effectiveness as a practitioner and give you the confidence to grow in your practice.
