About Me

My name is Diana Yates. I graduated with my masters degree is Social Work from Loyola University in Chicago. I am a seasoned and compassionate therapist with over 15 years of clinical expertise. I'm holistic, looking at all aspects of your life. I draw on a wide range of approaches to focus my sessions based on individual clients. First and foremost, I believe that building a therapeutic relationship based on trust, non-judgement and empathy is key. My approaches include Person-Centered Therapy, Cognitive Therapy, and Solution Focused therapy.
It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards change. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!

Diana is a good listener. I gave her a lot of issues to try and navigate in only a 45 min session on the phone. She gave me some homework for our next session that will be helpful to revue. I think she is very helpful

Diana has already been helping me in a very short amount of time. We immediately got along and I felt that she completely understood me and respected me deeply. I highly recommend her.

Diana obviously knows her stuff. She is strongly supportive while gentle in introducing new ideas and suggestions. I feel very comfortable talking with Diana.
