Trauma-based & Family Psychotherapy For Angry, Anxious, Depressed, and Frustrated Families

Accepting schizo-affective disorder

thinkingAre you the parent of or know someone who is the parent of an adult child with schizophrenia or Schizoaffective disorder? How would you respond to that diagnosis? What if your son or daughter was a stellar student with gifted abilities and one day lost her hope for a bright future because of a chronic mental health condition? The stress and strain that you would feel might almost take all the life in your soul. In fact, it might cause you to question why.

Many parents who are struggling with a child, adolescent, or adult child with a chronic mental health condition go through a series of emotional and psychological challenges themselves. It’s difficult just trying to accept the diagnosis, treat the illness, live with the symptoms, help a loved one cope, and avoid stigma. Sharon Page knows exactly what this feels like. She not only observed her high functioning daughter slowly deteriorate overtime, but she also struggled with the thought of stigma and social stereotypes.

*CORONA VIRUS UPDATE1050 Lincoln Way, Ste 1 - Pittsburgh PA

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 check www.anchoredinknowledge.com (the practice website) for updates and my business facebook page at: https://www.facebook.com/anchoredchild.

Please continue to stay safe!
Thank you

Tamara
