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

Loss: Can You Be Traumatized By Grief?

Grief and lossLoss can change your life forever.

It can lead to a major transformation or a major hole in your heart.

Going through the process of grief requires courage, introspection, and faith.

Without it loss and grief can feel traumatic.

In this video, I discuss the process of loss and grief and the impact it can have on us for a lifetime.

In this video, I use some examples from my personal experience to discuss the process of traumatic grief and loss.

Traumatic grief is a field of study in and of itself. Although research is limited on this topic, the current research we have demonstrates the emotional and psychological challenges those in grief face.

Research suggests that ongoing difficulties are common for those who have experienced a traumatic loss.

According to the National Child Traumatic Stress Network (2020), children who have experienced a traumatic loss can have ongoing difficulties that can become childhood trauma and impact them for years to come.

It is important society understands the grieving process isn’t always as easy as it may appear to some.

*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 continue to stay safe!
