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

Media exploitation over CT shootings

I have witnessed a “storm” of various reports on narcissism, Asperger’s Syndrome, arrogance, poor parenting, school security, gun control, opportunists, introversion, and quietness in youth  following the Connecticut school shootings. It’s as if this tragedy has hit a nerve across the nation and has spun us all into a panic to consider various reasons for senseless acts.


As much as we want to make sense out of this horrible event, we must be mindful of the messages we are putting out into the world, into the media. We want to eradicate erroneous assumptions and perpetuate a more concrete, intelligent, and well thought out explanation. How can we execute this if we are sensationalizing our own ideas? We don’t want to be a vehicle of greater confusion.


Media contributors, bloggers, and writers should strive to lend comfort through truth and a balanced perspective. What matters is helping society garner direction for tomorrow.


As always, I wish you well

*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!
