I am a licensed clinical mental health counselor in Tennessee. I graduated from Bushnell university in 2018. I have worked for an outpatient agency, residential facility, hospital, and in private practice.
My goal as a counselor is to empower you to become confident, strong, and connected with your inner self and others. I work with individuals to address issues including depression, anxiety, and trauma. I stay attuned to both your emotional and physical distress during session. Together we will seek to develop the whole you, including your mental, emotional and physical self. We will find the puzzle pieces of the story which your body shares with us. From day one, we will work tirelessly on achieving your therapeutic goals.
I incorporate cognitive behavioral interventions, somatic work, and narrative therapy. We may unearth difficult material during sessions but we will work gently to improve your distress tolerance and increase your life quality. Due to my multicultural background, I have a unique understanding of cultural heritage and how it impacts our chosen trajectories.
It is a deep honor to listen to my client’s stories. I am in awe of how much the human spirit endures. Vulnerability and honest communication are fostered in our sessions. I focus our energy towards building a safe, trusting relationship. My commitment is to help you thrive.
I look forward to working together!

Diana is very sweet, smart, and attentive to what is going on in my life. I have depended on her through losing my father and grandmother. She is wonderful.

Diana! You encourage me to put my husband first, to put our life ahead of everything and I cannot thank you enough for that! My life is constantly improving and your guidance and listening is to thank for that!

This is probably a cliche story, but I tried therapy several times in the past. I signed up for BetterHelp and had two therapists that I did not particularly care for. I was going to stop trying therapy because at this point and had tried 4 in my life and they had all been less than stellar. Luckily, I decided with my last three weeks of BetterHelp to try a new therapist. That’s when I met Diana. I went from having nothing but mediocre to negative therapy interactions to nothing but positive ones. I cannot recommend her enough.
