My names are Simon D.M. Karanja, and I am a clinical psychologist at the master’s level with over 10 years of work experience and over 3,000 hours of clinical experience. My background working as a clinical psychologist in Kenya, includes practicing at institutions like Community health support, Kisumu district hospital, Mathare, Kaizora institute for children with autism spectrum disorder and Community counselling services - Aga Khan, assessing clients of all age groups and gender. Through this, I have learnt how to assess the needs of my clients and work with them to come up with appropriate treatment plans. Part of my experience has been in doing this as an e-health service provider i.e. online services (due to COVID restrictions). As a clinical psychologist, I am required to be able to assess my clients for all DSM-V mental disorders, which my time in the field has allowed me to do. I have assessed clients for a broad number of mental conditions including neurodevelopmental disorders, depression, schizophrenia spectrum, personality disorders, substance use, neurocognitive disorders, trauma and more.

A Psychological Diagnosis is a classification or labeling of a client's stated and perceived difficulties following a formal assessment by a psychologist or trained professional. To make a psychological diagnosis, the psychologist uses the diagnostic guidelines and criteria set down by the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM).
