About me

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with 8 years of professional experience in the behavioral health field with 5 years of professional experience providing clinical psychotherapeutic services to adults challenged by issues that have lead to depression, anxiety, grief, transitional life events, and overall psychosocial stressors that have impacted overall mood and functioning. I look forward to helping you explore and understand the origins that brought depression and/or anxiety and patterns that may interfere with your happiness to devise strategies for meaningful changes in your life.

As a clinical social worker, I use a holistic collaborative treatment approach as a guiding principal to facilitate change and/or life improvement. I utilize evidence-based approaches depending on the presenting need in a person-in-environment approach. I work to understand how each person interacts within their environment: family, work, social.

I want clients to walk away from their initial session feeling heard and understood without judgement by creating a safe space. My motto is "You won't leave the same way you came". We work together to make every session different, while building upon each session to allow a new understanding with a deeper connection to your feelings.

So far my experience with Diana has been fantastic. I've gone through 6 or 7 therapists most of them on here and in my opinion Diana is the first one to truly understand my issues and help me with them and she's not afraid to be honest with me.

Diana has been really great so far! She’s helped me stay focus on the positive and to come out of my head and to remember to restore faith in myself, which is a constant battle. We’ve talked boundaries, regular day to day issues, family drama, etc and I feel she’s really been helpful and supportive through those. I hope we can keep the momentum and positivity going.
