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

Why Avoidant & Reactive Attachment Disorders Are Similar

Reactive Attachment Disorder (RAD) is a disorder characterized by impoverished emotional and relational bonds or attachments with the most important people in our lives during childhood, that is, parental figures or caregivers. Children most frequently diagnosed with RAD include children who have been in orphanages, institutions for mental health, or foster care agencies. The disorder includes an individual to develop appropriate emotional bonds with adults as a result of an early life experience of negative bonds or lack of human connection. For example, children in orphanages who are rarely held or spoken to, often develop symptoms of RAD. Reactive attachment disorder is a rare condition, but when it does occur, treatment is often complicated. It is a lifelong challenge and process of teaching the individual to trust others and increase their self-esteem.

*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 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
