Corona Virus: What You Need To Know About Its Psychology

COrona virus fearCorona virus has really stressed most people out.

It’s really hard to tell what you should and should not do to protect against corona virus.
It’s also really hard to tell what you should and should not do in terms of preparation.

This seems to be two of the main reasons for the mass chaos and mass panic that we are witnessing across the airwaves and in our communities.

In this video, I attempt to offer a therapeutic perspective with tips on how to stay calm during this process.

There seems to be a discrepancy between trying to stay calm and trying to prepare and cope with the measures that have been taken all around us.

For example, in some communities, senior citizens who may have the virus are sent home (if they have family or friends they could stay with) to protect the others in a care facility.

Another example is our schools. Some schools have shut down completely for the next 15-20 days or has allowed kids to complete their assignments online.

Even more, some communities have already been secluded from their family, friends, coworkers, and communities until they are tested and cleared.



I welcome your comments and questions!

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
