I also served on staff at Crisis Pregnancy Center counseling teens, young women, men, and families. I also have worked with teens in youth organizations. My specialization includes work with women, couples and older students. Some of the issues targeted include conflict resolution, adjustment disorders, and grief. Diagnosis is based on the DSM-fifth edition (The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disordersof the American Psychiatric Association). The diagnosis becomes a part of the clients’ records.
