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

Psychotherapy: A Practical Review of Unethical Therapists

Unethical therapistsPsychotherapy can be challenging for therapist and client.

How has your experience with therapists been?

Do you feel on edge or do you feel welcomed and understood?

For those of you who have tried counseling, did you notice some odd behaviors in the therapist or behaviors that put you on edge?

For many patients/clients, it can be difficult to see anything bad about a professional. Why would you question someone with degrees, education, and possibly prestige? You wouldn’t.

This video will explore patterns of behaviors that may need to be looked at a bit closer.

I’ve gotten many emails from patients/clients who had negative encounters with unethical therapists. Unethical therapists range from mild, moderate, and severe. Being able to correctly identify an unethical therapist will require knowledge.

It’s important to think through what you are feeling and doing. The best case scenario would be to talk to the therapist and try to gather a broader understanding.


What should I do?

Ethical therapists always put their client’s first and know how to support them emotionally and psychologically. There is an honest care and concern for the wellbeing of the client.

An unethical therapist always caters to their own psychological, emotional, and sometimes physical needs. When this happens, clients need to take action by leaving the therapist, consulting with another professional, or pursuing a higher authority.

*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!
Thank you
