DSM-5

The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) is the book the health care professionals use to communicate with each other about mental health disorders. It provides a common language for these professionals to communicate. If you have been diagnosed with something in the DSM and are left wondering what that means feel free to come discuss.

I offer a warm and safe place to engage in psychological counseling with those with DSM diagnosis. I have clinically assessed and treated a large number of people who have had DSM diagnosis. Treatment options and length vary as personal goals and presentations vary. I draw from multiple evidenced based treatment techniques to create a multi-dimensioned plan that fits your goals. I am aware of the special challenges that different social, occupational, family, and cultural contexts can bring.

It is very important to not self-diagnosis and mental health changes that can occur when being faced with family conflict.  With so much information available to us on the Internet today this can be tempting, but grieving can have very real effects on your function and needs the attention of a mental health professional. Talk therapy is very effective at working with a variety of issues.

Because of the wide variety of reactions, and the complexities and subtleties of professional diagnosis and treatment, feel free to call me to discuss further. I am experienced and trained in a variety of treatment and assessment methods.  Contact a licensed mental health professional or your family doctor if you have concerns about a DSM-V diagnosis.
