Psychotherapy: 9 Signs You May Have A Bad Therapist

Finding the right therapistPsychotherapy can be a very helpful process for those seeking support and guidance.

As a psychotherapist myself I promote the journey to those I like and care about.

However, finding the right therapist is very significant to the success of one’s therapeutic journey.

In this article (and video) I discuss the counseling process and signs that you may have a bad therapist.

Finding the right therapist can mean making one of the best decisions of your life.

It’s important to understand that in order to progress and heal in counseling you need to have the right team player. Without the right team player you risk losing your ability to grow, change, and function. Viktor Frankl coined the term “iatrogenic neurosis” to describe the process by which a healthcare provider can create or make worse symptoms in a patient. Having the wrong therapist can result in “iatrogenic neurosis” including a variety of other symptoms such as depression, anxiety, and even PTSD.

As always, I wish you well

*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!
