Hello, my name is Diana Hope. I am a Licensed Specialist Clinical Social Worker in Kansas with 20 years of experience working alongside people from the ages of toddlers up to senior citizens.

When we begin I am most interested in your reasons for seeking support and the things you see as standing in your way. Especially at the beginning and as we move along, I will check with you about my understanding of your concerns and I will ask you to clarify and correct wherever needed. We’ll talk about possible ways things could get better for you. I am a warm and compassionate person. I want you to feel comfortable and safe in therapy. I seek to be respectful, kind, and honest. As we become better acquainted, I hope we’ll share humor from time to time since laughter is wonderful medicine! I will meet you where you are at. And I encourage you to tell me what pace is comfortable for you. My focus is: on you as a unique individual, sharing with you methods that are evidence based and known to work, while also supporting your growth and feelings of well-being. For you to seek out support is Brave and Forward-thinking! I’m here for you.

I have only met with Diana a few times but I think she is wonderful. I have tried other therapist in the past (not through Better Help) and have not connected with them like I have with Diana.
