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

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!
Thank you
