Philosophy

Safe and Judgment Free

At Creating Connections Counseling, we believe that anyone can benefit from counseling. If you find yourself struggling with the challenges of life, counseling can help you to clarify your thoughts and emotions and put them in proper context to guide you forward.

Counseling can be a vehicle to finding or maintaining healthy relationships, uncovering hidden passions, managing symptoms of mental illness, and establishing life goals for those who feel stuck.

Our team of licensed clinicians are available to guide you through the journey of self-examination and personal growth that all people deserve.

Creating Connections Counseling is a safe space where all are welcome. We believe in the intrinsic value of all human beings and are here to serve all who seek our help.

Words We Live By

“They say life is for those who know how to live, but nobody is born ready. Life is for those who are brave enough to take chances and humble enough to learn.”

– Clarice Lispector

Services

Individual Counseling

Individual psychotherapy sessions tailored to your specific needs. Whether you are experiencing symptoms of mental illness, are interested in personal examination, or want to clarify your thoughts and emotions, our clinicians can help. We offer safe, confidential, judgment-free counseling. Services are available weekdays and weekends, day and evening.

Couples Counseling

Do you feel stuck because you and your partner are having the same fights over and over again? Do you have conflict with your partner that you don’t know how to resolve? Does the support and connection you used to share seems lost? We can help couples make significant changes, develop a stronger relationship foundation and re-establish connection. Couples counseling is available weekdays and weekends.

Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Given the continued global concerns regarding the Coronavirus (COVID-19), we want to share the extra precautions Creating Connections Counseling is taking to keep our clients and clinicians safe.

All of our clinicians are fully vaccinated and we are offering a combination of Telehealth and in person sessions at both Wexford and Squirrel Hill locations. We ask that everyone entering our buildings wear masks at all times.

We continue to carefully monitor the recommendations of governmental health agencies, such as the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and local health organizations, and we have further elevated our stringent cleaning and sanitation protocol.

There is no denying that COVID-19 has had an impact on our communities. Our aim is to assist the community in halting the progression of this pandemic, while still meeting the needs of our clients and clinicians.
