Yes! Diagnoses can change and often do change. Whether that’s due to a resolution of symptoms or more information surfacing leading to a need to adjust a diagnosis, a counselor can at any time, make appropriate adjustments or changes.
If you’re uncomfortable with being given a formal diagnosis this is a great thing to talk about with your counselor. If you choose to pay out of pocket or using a sliding scale instead of using your insurance coverage you can talk with your counselor about potentially not using a formal diagnosis in your counseling services. It’s important that you as the client feel informed and comfortable with this part of the counseling process.
