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

Resiliency: Are You A Resilient Adult?

ResilienceResiliency has more to do with external supports and protective factors than your determination.

Would you consider yourself resilient? If so, in what ways?

In this article, I will discuss the Resiliency Questionnaire and provide the scale for you to take.Resilience is typically defined as one’s ability to overcome challenges in life and move forward in strength. This is often easier said than done for many people who have grown up with childhood trauma.

Resilience is often the result of protective factors in one’s life. Examples include supportive and loving parents, good education, access to employment, internal motivation, goal setting, etc. Without protective factors, resilience may not be possible.The Resiliency Questionnaire can be regarded as the “sister” of the ACE Questionnaire.


In this video, I provide the scale questions and encourage you to take it for yourself.

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!
Thank you
