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

Getting to know the Histrionic personality

Are you familiar with an emotionally dramatic, stage performing, highly narcissistic individual who devalues everyone around him or her? Do you find yourself in repeated arguments or confrontations with this person because they feel “unfairly treated” ? If so, you might be dealing with a histrionic personality.

As a therapist, my journey with personality disorders has been tough. Although I specialize in behavioral and mood disorders, personality disorders are often concurrent with depression, anxiety, or oppositional traits in the adolescent population. A recent experience with a histrionic individual reminded me of the serious and damaging nature of cluster B disorders. A histrionic individual, primarily women, have the ability to not only drain others, but control their emotions with their dramatic displays of anger, resentment, self-love, and devaluation of others. They can be dangerously convincing to someone who is unfamiliar with histrionic personality traits. They can convince an audience of severe abuse or maltreatment and often seem to control the emotions of others with their expansive emotions. It can be almost impossible to not believe a histrionic personality. Their emotional upset and sometimes alluring personality and appearance can make it difficult to decipher truth from fiction with these individuals.

*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!
