What's New

October is National Bullying Prevention Month

October is National Bullying Prevention Month.  School bullying is a serious issue that has been shown to have detrimental effects on our youth. The National Center for Educational Statistics (2019) found that one out of every five students has reported being bullied.  Children and teens who experience bullying are at a greater risk for depression, anxiety, and poor academic performance.  Children and teens who perpetrate bullying are at an increased risk for mental health and behavioral health difficulties.  If your child or teen has been involved in bullying, please call us.  We have licensed therapists who specialize in the treatment of children, adolescents, and families.

Welcome Tricia Shepherd and Meg Thornbury!

Persoma Counseling Associates welcomes our new interns, Tricia Shepherd and Meg Thornbury!  Both Tricia and Meg are second year graduate students at the University of Pittsburgh.

Tricia is excited to provide individual therapy to adolescents and adults. She is particularly interested in helping individuals heal from experiences of abuse or trauma.

Meg is passionate about using trauma-centered and identity-informed therapy to help get to the root of people’s issues and patterns to help them grow and make the changes they’re looking for.

Both Tricia and Meg are supervised by licensed providers, and are available for appointments at a reduced rate.  

For more information, please contact Stephanie Pasquarelli, Chief Operations Officer at 412-823-5155 ext. 635 or
