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.

Diana is great. She is helping me get on the right track for sure :-)
Diana's work with me has completely transformed me these last 5 months. I have become the partner and man I want to be. As she is fond of saying, "I have found my best inner self". She is professional, compassionate, and empathetic, but she also holds me accountable to my goals and recognizes when I am only fooling myself. I would not have been able to do what I have done without her, and I am extremely grateful.
Diana is very kind and listens intently and has so much empathy and she gives me a little test to complete or things to think about each week.
Diana is a wonderful therapist, she takes time to really understand what you’re struggling with and offers a variety of ways to approach the issues.
She is so patient and a great listener. She really made me feel understood and was able to give me so great advice for handling conflict in my life. She is a wonderful counselor!!
Diana has been absolutely wonderful. She listens, provides wonderful feedback, and her years of experience speaks for itself during our calls. I look forward to my sessions with her, as I always feel better about the goals that I am working towards. She holds me accountable, gives me productive feedback, and encourages my steps in the right direction. She is professional, and clinically speaking, she is amazingly well trained and an expert in her field. I would highly recommend her to anyone.
very easy to jump into conversations and work on verbally communicating problems.
