WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY...

I have struggled with depression for a long time. I had even seen other counselors. Randy Simmonds helped me realize that for me, I was really struggling with a crisis of faith and how I fit into God's love. Finding those answers helped me find the peace I had been searching for for years.

Personality Disorders


Personality disorders are a group of psychiatric conditions in which chronic behavior patterns cause serious problems with relationships and work. Symptoms vary widely depending on the specific type of personality disorder. People with personality disorders have difficulty dealing with everyday stresses and problems, and they often have stormy relationships with others. These conditions vary from mild to severe.

People with these disorders usually do not seek treatment on their own. They tend to seek help once their behavior has caused severe problems in their relationships or jobs, or when they are diagnosed with another psychiatric problem, such as a mood or substance abuse disorder.Although personality disorders are difficult to treat, there is increasing evidence that both medications and some forms of talk therapy can help many people.
