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

Memorial Day is very mis-represented

Lets remember to pause wherever they are at 3 p.m. local time on Memorial Day for a minute of silence to remember and honor those who have died in service to the nation. 

I had the opportunity to speak to a veteran that I work with and one of the things he said that really stuck with me was that “I feel so ignored on Memorial Day because everyone sees that as the start of the summer, as the end of the school-year, as the beginning to their summer fun. No one ever considers that many soldiers, marines, and other respected men including police men, etc. are not having a summer right now due to mental health problems, post-traumatic stress disorder, worries, nightmares that destroy their lives, financial difficulties, homelessness, and other terrible circumstances. It’s such a disservice to our men and women who have risked their lives for us to barbecue, hit beach balls, and go to parks for our own selfish needs. It’s okay to celebrate your family and the time you enjoy spending with each other, but lets not forget that our freedom cost a price.

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!
