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 up to 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.

In the few weeks I’ve talked to Diana, she has been a wonderful listener, making it very easy to be honest and open. She has made several helpful suggestions, and given me exercises to help control my impulses. Thank you. I look forward to continuing our sessions.
