Something to keep in mind about diagnosis is that a psychological condition can exist within the context of your life and therefore may not always stand alone.  We take great care in performing a comprehensive evaluation of the client’s life circumstances to minimize the impact of diagnosis.  We do not believe that a person seeking help should be defined solely by a diagnosis. Therapy alone or therapy in combination with brief interventions of medication will reduce the impact of most presenting issues thus reducing symptoms of psychological conditions.
