Get to Know Diane

Therapist | LCSW

My approach to therapy is based on mutuality, empathy and respect. I see my role as a facilitator, assisting you on coping with life challenges while providing a safe, non-judgmental space to uncover your strengths and power to create the life that you want. I believe in a holistic approach that integrates mind, body and spirit.

I utilize a framework of cognitive behavioral therapy that focuses on how our thoughts effect our emotions, behaviors and habits. Mindfulness, visualization and guided imagery are also methods that I employ. Creating a joyful life is my definition of success.

I have experience working with a wide range of people with diverse backgrounds, needs and challenges.

I also specialize in teaching stress reduction skills to those facing crisis, life transitions and caregivers.
