As I have developed professionally and personally over the years, I have come to realize the qualities that Dr. King exhibited are also qualities that mental health therapists/professionals should strive to embody. Each year during the celebration of Dr. King we should strive to implement the qualities that he embodied (perseverance, integrity/peace, knowledge, unity) in our own lives and careers. There is always room to improve our personal and professional selves.
Trauma-based & Family Psychotherapy For Angry, Anxious, Depressed, and Frustrated Families
As we get closer to the middle of May 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.
Unfortunately, Gov. Wolf hasn't reduced the mask wearing restrictions in Allegheny County. However, he has announced most of Western PA will be moving to the yellow phase beginning May 15. This means that we can slowly regain some normalcy.
But until the mask wearing restrictions are reduced or eliminated Anchored Child & Family Counseling will remain closed. I will be making small transitions back to the office over the course of summer and seeing some clients in-person based on need.The office will be open starting June 17, 2020 with the goal of remaining open until/if state laws change in response to Corona virus restrictions.
In the meantime, I will be continuing teletherapy sessions until mid-June. My office assistant and I will be monitoring your insurance policy to ensure that you will be covered for teletherapy and that your copayments will be waived. At this time, it appears that all major insurance companies (UPMC, Highmark, Aetna, Optum/United, and Cigna) are continuing to provide coverage for teletherapy.

Please continue to stay safe!
