DISCLAIMER: The reference to "Marital First Aid" in this web site is only metaphorical and should not be interpreted literally as a professional or medical procedure. In no way should the reader construe that an actual doctor-patient relationship exists because of such metaphorical language. The syndromes cited in this website are not found or recognized in DSM-IV. Any true professional diagnostic assessment would require that you first meet with a counselor to provide much more detailed information about yourself, your history, your situation, and your symptoms.
No guarantee is made regarding the outcome and consequences of suggested interventions. However, it is accurate to portray said interventions as having been historically helpful to other people who have been previous clients of Cary Counseling Center. If the reader desires for Cary Counseling Center to assume responsibility for their care in a doctor-patient relationship, then the reader should call for a face to face appointment so that thorough diagnostic assessment and treatment planning can be performed and a professional relationship established. Telephone consultations alone, without physically meeting with a counselor, will be limited in scope to providing only psycho-education regarding existential or relationship issues and should not be construed as providing treatment for any diagnosable mental disorder.
