Why Childhood Anxiety Often Goes Undetected (and the Consequences) | Child Mind Institute.


There are so many reasons why kids experience anxiety and unfortunately, many parents are uninformed about their child’s anxiety. Infants often can detect the anxiety or stress level of their mothers (and even fathers), while school age children can pick up on stressful events like detectors. Sadly, many kids are misdiagnosed as having ADHD or Bipolar disorder because anxiety is so difficult to detect in youngsters. The symptoms of ADHD (hyperactivity, inability to concentrate, inattentiveness, etc.) can also be found in anxiety. The symptoms of bipolar disorder (inability to sleep, hyperactive behavior, irritability, explosiveness, etc.) can also be found in anxiety disorders.


Kids are also often overlooked because adults believe the lives of children are always wonderful and that very few kids suffer from mental health concerns or frivolous worrying. The reality is that kids too experience stress and while their pressure may not be as great as an adult, kids require constant supervision by those who love them in order to develop healthily.



As always, I wish you well

*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 continue to stay safe!
Thank you
