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

Psychological and Emotional Trauma: 5 Myths We Believe

Psychological and emotional traumaPsychological and emotional trauma can affect your life forever and scar your heart and mind far beyond what you could imagine. Tragedies can remain in your mind and heart for a lifetime.

These kinds of incidents leave us feeling isolated, unsure, afraid, perplexed, hurt, and angry. How could this happen all over again?

This article (and video) will discuss typical myths people believe about psychological and emotional trauma.

The recent incident in Florida involving an 18-year old size by the name of Nickolas changed the trajectory of life for those involved. Life will never be the same EVER again.

Didn’t we see enough with James Holmes, Adam Lanza, Brandon Hill, etc. etc.? Of course we did. But things remain the same.

What needs to change?

Many parents, that see me for therapy, are afraid that they will never see their kids again if they let them out of their sight for more than a few minutes. The horror on their faces shocks me. I can’t “digest” the reality that we have become a violent society of youths out of control, crying for help, and needing help so desperately. All of the young men named above are in need of psychiatric care. Sadly, without empathy and the ability to regret their heinous decisions, therapy and medication would be no good.

The many victims of Adam Lanza, James Holes, Brandon Hill, etc who are still alive, are most likely struggling with psychological and emotional trauma. In the video below I aim to correct erroneous beliefs about trauma.

5 Common myths of trauma we tend to believe


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!
