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

Childhood Trauma: Are You An Adult Impacted?

Childhood TraumaChildhood trauma can follow you into adulthood. It isn’t something that easily overcome by perseverance and moving into the future.

Childhood trauma requires an understanding of how it has impacted you in your life.

In this article, I discuss the ACE questionnaire and some things you need to be aware of.Childhood trauma can result in years of problems in adulthood such as relationship instability, low self-esteem, impulsivity, inattentiveness and challenges with staying focused in life, depression and anxiety, suicidal thoughts and attempts, substance abuse, etc.

When trauma occurs at young ages the brain is greatly impacted. This requires a specialist to identify neurological limitations and suggest an appropriate treatment plan.

ACE Questionnaire

Taking the ACE questionnaire is the first step toward understanding what has happened to you. The ACE questionnaire consists of a variety of questions to help you identify the impact of childhood trauma. It focuses on risk factors (things that make us more vulnerable to difficulties in our lives) and the impact these have had on you.


In this video, I provide the ACE test in the description box.

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

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!
