Can Jenny determine a mental health diagnosis or prescribe medication?
No. I am neither a medical doctor nor a licensed therapist or psychiatrist. I have a general working knowledge of mental health conditions that trauma survivors sometimes struggle with. This knowledge is essential to understand my client’s mental health experience, confer with other mental health professionals, or interpret medical records I might receive about a client. I also have a basic understanding of psychotropic medications needed to treat those illnesses. As a coach, I never advise about medication, but my familiarity with them will help me understand a client’s daily experience.
