Our mental health system is extremely broken, failed, and flawed in every way. There are no clear guidelines for anything and many people are lost in the system (family, providers, and mental health professionals). No one really knows how to help and what “treatment” or intervention truly helps. We have some ideas, but that’s about it. Our research is limited in many areas and we’re very behind on studying the brain and genes.

Trauma-based & Family Psychotherapy For Angry, Anxious, Depressed, and Frustrated Families
States across the nation are passing laws, reducing restrictions, and enacting new regulations to help support the transition from stay-at-home orders to the normal flow of life again.
To keep everyone at Anchored Child & Family Counseling safe, I will only be opening the office for in-person sessions 1 day of the week. The other days of the week will consist of teletherapy sessions until the mask wearing restrictions are reduced or eliminated and corona virus cases have gone down.
My office assistant and I will be monitoring insurance policies for any changes to corona-related cost share, copayment, and coinsurance policies. I will be checking and rechecking insurance policies to ensure you will be covered for teletherapy. At this time, all major insurance companies (UPMC, Highmark, Aetna, Optum/United, and Cigna) are continuing to provide coverage for teletherapy into September 2020.

Please continue to stay safe!
