Are your practitioner’s doctors?

What do practitioners help people work through?
We help our clients work through a variety of struggles. We most commonly work with grief, adjustment, depression, and anxiety. We also help people work through more serious issues, such as abuse, psychosis, addiction, and personality disorders.
Do practitioners prescribe medications or give mental health diagnoses?
According to National Government Services, Licensed Clinical Social Workers (LCSW’s) can diagnose mental health conditions. Diagnosing requires an evaluation of a person’s psychiatric history, symptoms, and evaluation of a person’s ability to respond to counseling. LCSW’s are not licensed to prescribe medications. We can give recommendations to doctors and/or psychiatrists but are not medically trained to prescribe.
