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!

The overall therapy was good

Diana is a wonderful listening ear but she also pushes you to do better too. I love that out of anyone but thank you for pushing me in the worst months to pull through and being there.

So far, Diana has helped me dig a lot deeper than I expected. She asked me what I wanted out of therapy & it’s actually coming together. Thanks for allowing me to challenge myself Diana!

Diana has been a great source of comfort and support. Her support does not come in the form of blind validation but challenges me to take step back and view my situation as is and make the best decision based on viewing the issue at hand from different perspectives. She has celebrated my small and big wins with me, which provides me with the confidence that I am heading in the right direction, even if the journey can be difficult.

Diana is wonderful! I've only had a few sessions so far but it has been great with just a few sessions. She is honest, but respectful. She will help you unpack things you never thought you were dealing with or with things that you may have wanted to forget about. Highly recommend.

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

Written by S.Y. on Oct 02, 2021 after therapy with Diana for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, trauma and abuse, anger management, coping with life changes, and compassion fatigue

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.

Written by A.L. on Sep 29, 2021 after therapy with Diana for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, addictions, and trauma and abuse

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

Work with me!
