Do you have questions about faith and religion?

Have you ever felt satisfied with the answer?

For a lot of my clients who are suicidal religion vs faith is a topic they try to stay away from because of the existential confusion that often results from conversations.

This article and video will discuss what I call an “existential crisis.

What is an existential crisis?

An “existential crisis” is what I refer to as a crossroads between what we want to believe and what we don’t quite understand yet. It is an emotional place of confusion. It is a psychological place of confusion where most people give up, feel helpless, become severely depressed, or consider suicide. When my clients struggle with an existential crisis, I often ask about their personal beliefs about life, religion, and faith.


Faith vs Religion

Faith has always been one of my strongest anchors. It’s something that has rescued me in difficult times and has proven beneficial to family, friends, and clients who feel helpless and unable to change their circumstance. The journey of faith and following God is quite a journey. It takes dedication, patience, and an open mind.

*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
