Diana was the best therapist I’ve ever had! We had to end our sessions when I moved to another state, but we made so much progress in just a few months. She’s so great to work with - smart, kind, supportive and real. She helped me so much.

I’ve loved having Diana as my therapist. She is very intuitive and responsive. She understands what things do and do not work for me therapeutically and she’s very in tune with my needs. I honestly recommend her highly
