I am Diana Norton, Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW). I have worked with individuals, couples, and families seeking counseling for over 30 years, both online and in private practice. You can read ore about my background, education, experience, and counseling approach by clicking on your name above our messages. I generally check messages here a few times per day Mon-Fri and respond as quickly a s I can. I do appreciate your patience when it takes a bit longer at time, as I may be tending to other clients or professional/personal responsibilities
I would like to welcome you to your online counseling room, which will be our private and secure place to communicate. You can enter this rom from any internet-connected device where ever you are.
To help us get started can you please tell me what brings you here? Just write a few short sentences about the challenges you're experiencing or what you would like to talk about and we will go from there.
My goal and hope in working together is two-fold. On the short term, I would like to help you get some relief with your feeling so you can live a more fulfilling life. On the longer term, I hope that we can get to the bottom of the feelings, concerns and dilemmas.
You have done the first (and most important) step of reaching out for help. Together we will keep taking one step at a time, at a pace that you feel comfortable with.
If you could schedule a phone call to discuss the issues that you would like to address in therapy and get started working toward reaching your therapeutic goals that would be great.

It's been such a blessing to have Diana as my therapist. She really helped me clear the thoughts in my head. I've been dealing with so much anxiety, depression, and just a lost sense of purpose. Great listener, delightful and nice. We picked up where we left off each time we talk and she's able to give feedback with action plans to help me get over the problems in my head and heart. I feel much better and at peace and most importantly be happy with myself and live with purpose.
Thank you so much Diana, you been so wonderful!
