MORE UPDATES ON THE IMPACT OF COVID-19 ON OUR PRACTICE
AS OUR COUNTIES CONTINUE TO MAKE STRIDES IN THE WAR AGAINST COVID, TELETHERAPY IS STILL THE PREFERRED METHOD OF SERVICE DELIVERY FOR MENTAL HEALTH SERVICES AT THIS TIME. WE CONTINUE TO ACCEPT NEW CLIENTS, BOTH IN PERSON AND VIA VIDEO PLATFORM, AND WE HAVE EXTENDED OUR ALREADY CONVENIENT APPOINTMENT SCHEDULE TO HELP MAKE THIS PART EASIER ON EVERYONE. WE FUNCTION 7 DAYS PER WEEK AND OFFER DAY, EVENING AND WEEKEND APPOINTMENTS.
WHETHER YOU ARE A CURRENT CLIENT, OR SOMEONE SEEKING SOME SUPPORT DURING THIS TIME, WE ARE COMMITTED TO HELPING YOU GAIN THE TOOLS NECESSARY TO NAVIGATE THIS TRULY UNUSUAL AND STRESSFUL TIME. SO MUCH OF WHAT WE DEAL WITH IN LIFE IS SCARY, BUT THIS PART DOESN'T HAVE TO BE. THIS PART IS THE BRIDGE TO ACCEPTANCE AND HAPPINESS. CALL US. DON'T PUT IT OFF FOR ONE MORE DAY. THE ISOLATION AND FEAR THAT INCREASES EACH DAY THAT THIS PANDEMIC CONTINUES CAN BE DIMINISHED. AND THE PROBLEMS THAT YOU ARE FACING ASIDE FROM COVID DON'T HAVE TO GO IGNORED ANY LONGER. YOU CAN FEEL GOOD AGAIN. YOU CAN FEEL HOPEFUL. AND WE WANT TO HELP. IF YOU KNOW SOMEONE WHO IS STRUGGLING, GIVE THEM OUR NUMBER. IF YOU FIND THAT YOU HAVE A SHORTER FUSE THAN YOU DID BEFORE, CALL US. IF YOU KNOW SOMEONE WHO IS LONELY, OR PRONE TO DEPRESSION OR ANXIETY, GIVE THEM OUR NUMBER. IF YOU ARE FEELING OVERWHELMED, CALL US. OUR TEAM IS HERE FOR YOU ALL.
MANY INSURANCE COMPANIES ARE TRYING TO EASE THE FINANCIAL BURDEN ON CONSUMERS AND ARE OFFERING NO COST SHARING AT THIS TIME (NO COPAYS, COINSURANCE, ETC.) FOR THOSE WHO CHOOSE TO PARTICIPATE IN TELETHERAPY. LET US HELP YOU FIND OUT IF THIS APPLIES TO YOU!
STAY SAFE AND HEALTHY AND REACH OUT TO US OR OTHERS IF YOU NEED TO. IT COULD MAKE ALL THE DIFFERENCE.

Today you are one step closer to a new you where you feel empowered and on a positive path to growth and well-being.
As a solution-focused therapist, my goal is to help you uncover your true potential and lead a life that is worth celebrating. While we can't change difficult situations of the past, we can work together to better understand and resolve challenges in your life. By applying complementary therapy approaches and techniques, we will unearth long-standing behavior patterns or negative perceptions that may be holding you back from experiencing a more fulfilling and meaningful life.
If you're looking for extra support and guidance through a challenging situation, or you're just ready to move in a new direction in your life, my team and I look forward to working with you to achieve your goals.
Please call or email for a consultation today. Same day appointments are possible in some cases, and we are open 7 days a week with varying hours each day. We are also in two convenient locations in the South Hills of Pittsburgh, so let's start this journey together, close to home.
