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

Combating distorted thought patterns the right way

Recently I wrote an article entry for PsychCentral on my personal blog “Caregivers, Family, and Friends” about cognitive distortions, something I believe all humans engage in from one time or another.

While writing the article I began to reflect upon my own thought patterns and their influence on how I perceive people, events, and certain occurrences in my life. Our thought patterns can be very influential to how we feel, behave, perceive, and engage in life. We must be aware of how we are thinking about thinking and adjust whatever thought patterns are unhealthy or simply not helpful.

As always, I wish you well

*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!
Thank you
