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

Healing From Trauma: 7 Signs You Aren’t Ready

Family traumaEmotional trauma is a physiological, psychological, psychological, and neurobiological process that takes a toll on your entire person. It can be experienced in many ways and it isn’t something you can easily get over.

In this video, I will discuss the 7 signs you may not be ready to move forward from that traumatic event you experienced.

Healing from trauma can take many years. You have to get to an emotional and psychological place of wanting to change and experience a better life. Most people get to this place after years of living life for others and not themselves.

Sadly, this choice can lead to years of depression and unresolved anxiety. Depression and anxiety often leads to anhedonia (lack of interest in things once enjoyed) and lack of motivation.

Without the motivation to move forward, you are likely to stay “stuck.” “Stuckness” isn’t 100% your fault because trauma, as stated above, tends to negatively impact the brain and your ability to be resilient.

The first step toward moving forward is by recognizing you are “stuck” and need a push. Healing will follow recognition of where you are in the grief and loss process.

 

In this video, I provide an overview of how trauma impacts your brain.

*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 check www.anchoredinknowledge.com (the practice website) for updates and my business facebook page at: https://www.facebook.com/anchoredchild.

Please continue to stay safe!
Thank you
