Diagnosis - Helpful or Stigmatizing?

  

“I have ADD,”  “ I was told I’m borderline,” “My diagnosis is depression.”  People may come to therapy with a diagnosis from a physician, psychiatrist, a previous therapist or self-diagnosis through their own research.  When it comes to your state of mind, it may be more helpful to understand what factors are contributing to how you feel, the decisions you make, the ways in which you live your life.
