ARE YOU A MENTAL HEALTH THERAPIST?
At times in our work with clients it may be difficult to pin point exactly what is going on with regards to diagnosis. We develop hypotheses about what we think may be the issue, but many times there are so many factors that may influence and impact individuals in their behavior, emotional functioning, and cognitive functioning. This may be a good time to refer your client for psychological testing to rule out and/or confirm a diagnosis. Doing so will provide you as the therapist with insights about your client, a clearer picture of the presenting problem, and provide the client with recommendations that will be helpful to both you and the client. Dr. León-Villa emphasizes differential diagnosis given that several conditions overlap in symptoms and presentation. Children who have experienced trauma, for example, may often times be misdiagnosed or over diagnosed with conditions such as ADHD, impulse control disorders, and conduct problems solely based on their behavioral presentation. As a trauma expert, Dr. León-Villa understands that developmental history, environmental experiences, biological factors, and cognitive factors contribute to how an individual experiences and responds to the world. Dr. León-Villa reviews and explains results from testing and encourages her patients to share their results/reports with their therapist to support their current treatment.
