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

Do your sleep aids impair your ability to function?

Do you take Ambien, Sonata, or Lunesta? What about a loved one?  These medications are often the only saving grace for people suffering from insomnia. But multiple reports have stirred concerned from the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) regarding the behavioral and central nervous system affects sedatives or tranquilizer’s can have on human beings. One of the most pressing issues is driving ability. A driving simulator used in clinical trials have shown a reduced ability to drive safely and with alertness while under the influence of “sleep-aids.” Many people have experienced the negative consequences of these sedatives and the FDA is evaluating how best to deal with this situation, despite widespread opposition.

CORONA VIRUS1050 Lincoln Way, Ste 1 - Pittsburgh PA

Trying to understand all of the chaos associated with the #coronavirus can feel very overwhelming.

I want to let ALL of my clients/patients who come to Anchored Child & Family Counseling or who see me for consultations know that I am taking the necessary steps to ensure that all of the families and individuals who come to the office are safe and healthy.

Please know that, in the event Anchored Child & Family Counseling is asked to alter its hours or close for the safety of all clients/patients, I will be offering tele-health (online, computer, or phone) services. Although I do not anticipate this happening any time soon, this is important to be prepared for.

I also want to assure you that if I receive any information regarding the corona virus that involves your insurance and/or your care I will let you know as soon as possible.

Although many of the new reports may appear to be or feel exaggerated, as you know keeping our eyes open and making smart decisions is essential.

Please let me know if you have questions!
Tamara
