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

Understanding Complex Emotional Symptoms

Some time ago I had a brief discussion with an acquaintance involving the most perplexing, yet mysteriously interesting behavior. What had been a mystery for this family was revealed a month ago. Their loved one had exhibited inappropriate laughter, crying, and emotional outbursts that weren’t connected to a psychotic disorder.

Pseudo-bulbar affect (PBA) was a condition that had this family emotionally drained for years. It is currently defined as a neurological condition characterized by unpredictable and uncontrollable emotional outbursts involving laughter and crying during inappropriate times.

PBA is often the result of strokes, traumatic brain injury, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s Disease, or dementia/Alzheimer’s Disease. This neurological condition can masquerade as a mental disturbance. The reason this topic is so important for us on this particular blog is because holistic healthcare is vital. Many medical conditions have been diagnosed as mental illnesses.

*CORONA VIRUS UPDATE1050 Lincoln Way, Ste 1 - Pittsburgh PA

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.

To keep everyone at Anchored Child & Family Counseling safe, I will only be opening the office for in-person sessions 1 day of the week. The other days of the week will consist of teletherapy sessions until the mask wearing restrictions are reduced or eliminated and corona virus cases have gone down.

My office assistant and I will be monitoring insurance policies for any changes to corona-related cost share, copayment, and coinsurance policies. I will be checking and rechecking insurance policies to ensure you will be covered for teletherapy. At this time, all major insurance companies (UPMC, Highmark, Aetna, Optum/United, and Cigna) are continuing to provide coverage for teletherapy into September 2020.

Please check www.anchoredinknowledge.com (the practice website) for updates and my business facebook page at: https://www.facebook.com/anchoredchild.

Please continue to stay safe!
Thank you

Tamara
