Hello! I understand it can feel intimidating to begin the process of counseling. I applaud you for leaning toward the healing process to care for your overall health.
Life can be hard and I'm here to partner with you, encouraging you to share your thoughts and feelings in a safe and accepting environment. Using a person centered process can provide immense healing in a place of comfort and compassion. Being heard and understood can allow you the space to be open and honest about the struggles you face. This is your path to walk, but I will walk alongside you. You are not alone on this journey.
I received my Masters in Counseling/School Counseling from Western Michigan University with an undergraduate degree is in Behavioral Psychology. I have experience in individual and group therapy (of all ages) and have been in private practice since 2009. I counsel from a strengths based approach using a variety of theories that best fit the client including person-centered, cognitive-behavioral therapy, and mindfulness. My specialties are in anxiety, depression, family/teen/children issues, autism and life changes.
In my spare time I like to travel with my husband, camp and hike as much as possible and spend quality time with our children and grandchildren.

Diahnn is extremely understanding and caring, I couldn’t recommend her enough.
She is open to learning about asexuality and genderfluidty. I feel very comfortable speaking to her.
C. Diahnn Austenfeld is one amazing professional, it has being a great experience talking to her, even being in a different country and time zone, she's very quick to respond and very easy to talk to. She is helpful and respectful to my concerns and anything I feel the need to discuss, I could never ask for a better counselor.
She is the best counselor ever! I am so lucky to have her as my counselor.
She's amazing professional. I've seen few counselors but always struggled to find someone who actually help you to let go your past instead of just talking about it. She adapted to my needs, she's a wonderful caring listener while she stays focus to keep the mental healing process in track.
Diahnn is an all-around amazing counselor! She helped me through so much and she's so patient and encouraging. I definitely recommend her.
Diahnn has been an absolutely amazing support and resource for me over the last year or so. I came to her with some relatively serious and long term issues and she took the time to really understand me, why I was experiencing the issues I had, and has been able to help me overcome those, teach me new strategies and coping mechanisms and change my perspective and thinking. I travel a lot for work and would not have been able to tackle my issues if I had to visit a therapist in an office. I will probably always be a work in progress but I am a much more stable and happy one thanks to Diahnn. Thank you!
She is amazing! She listens wholeheartedly and is genuinely interested in supporting me and my goals. I'm so thankful!
Diahnn is such a great listener with excellent insight.
Diahnn has helped me very much and I would like to thank her for being so patient, understanding, and helping me overcome many negative emotions and to make positive plans for my future. She is so encouraging and nurturing. I cannot thank her enough
Diahann is an extremely capable counselor who takes the time to understand the issues at hand and develops a pragmatic approach to finding solutions. She is compassionate and empathetic, with a sunny disposition which makes her a joy to interact with. I would highly recommend Diahnn.
Talking to her is easy, comforting and feels safe.
She is an amazing human being. She will help you and- won’t judge you. I feel great because of her, and I wish everyone have someone like her to help them out.
Diahnn has been such a huge help to me. She is patient, insightful, kind and supportive. She made me look at things from a different perspective and made me feel like she was truly invested in my success. I feel very fortunate that I was able to work with her.
Friendly, approachable, understanding and realistic.
Diahnn is one of a kind. She is kind, caring, and very enthusiastic to help. Despite the distance, she is there to support and encourage. Not once has she missed an appointment or not replied to a text. If you need a shoulder to lean on, she’s your best bet.
She's a really great person and a great counselor, She helps me see some things in a different way and always encourage me to do better and to keep hope
