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

Social and cultural responsibility: Loving thy neighbor

Hello everyone:

I wanted to post a few comments on the late and honorable Mr. Rodney King. As you know, we lost a sweet and modest person on June 17, 2012 to what has been defined as a drowning. Although Mr. King was notoriously known as the motorist who had a violent encounter with Los Angeles Police in 1991 and for the “can’t we all just get along” saying, he is more than simply these things. He is a replica of the many lives that have been lost to discrimination and injustice. He is the face of the condition that perpetuates inequality. He was a living stake for the many culturally distinct groups who have experienced oppression and rage as a result of a lack of understanding of genetic difference. He served a significant purpose while he lived, and he is serving an even greater purpose as he rests in peace.

To unconditionally love thy neighbor is to get motivated about the issues (that affect us and our youth) that Mr. King lived, breathed, and could not seem to put to rest in his mind.

Be Change,


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
