Mental Health Diagnoses

In the field of mental health, diagnoses can sometimes help to clarify the issues that a person is struggling with. At the same time, it is not helpful if diagnoses are used to put people into a narrow box.

All competent mental health professionals work with PEOPLE, not labels, and know that the personal meanings people have about their struggles are far more important than textbook descriptions.

Rather than trying to fit my clients into pathology-based categories, my therapy practice is person-centered and focused on helping people build lives of depth, vitality and satisfaction.

The types of difficulties that people seek help for include, but are not limited to, the following: depression, anxiety, feelings of emptiness, relationship challenges, social anxiety, social isolation, anger issues, past or recent trauma, divorce, infidelity, career confusion, alcohol or drug abuse, family dysfunction, sex addiction, fear of people, bipolar disorder, food obsessions and more.
