Cycle Of Abuse With Family: 3 Stages You Should Know

Cycle of abuseDo you have narcissistic family members?  If so, you are not alone.

In this article, I will discuss narcissistic family abuse.

During the holiday season, relationships are tested almost every second of the season. For most people, their childhood pain or emotions flood in, causing them to feel depressed and unmotivated.

For the most part, research suggests that it isn’t just the stress of the holiday that causes friction in relationships. But it is also the nature of the relationships we have (prior to the holiday season).

In this video, I will be discussing a basic concept – the cycle of abuse.

*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!
