About me

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, children, teens, and adults including senior citizens. In addition, I have worked with a great many clients in their 20s and 30s, from Black American, Hispanic, Asian, White American, African, European, and South Pacific backgrounds. Together, we’ve talked openly and implemented plans to relieve life’s pressures and progress towards important goals. I have known people of diverse Faiths. I also have considerable experience with military service clients.
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.

Reviews

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Diana Hope. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.

Diana is a patient, careful listener. She actively engages with my concerns, provides honest, thoughtful feedback, and ensures that I always feel confident that I am in control. Her trauma informed approach is exactly what I’m seeking, helping me to feel empowered, and she isn’t afraid to insert some much needed humor into our sessions. I feel she shows up authentically , helping me to feel safe doing the same. I absolutely recommend her.

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.
