About Me

My name is Diane Bidwell and I practice therapy as a Licensed Specialist Clinical Social Worker in the State of Kansas. I consider it a privilege to assist clients to a more fulfilling and connected life experience. Looking through a trauma informed lens along with integrating different therapy modalities like Cognitive Behavior Therapy, EMDR, Solution Focused, Interpersonal therapy techniques, and Attachment based techniques, allows me to assist clients to meet their goals in both their professional and personal life.
In my 19 years of clinical practice, I have assisted many clients to identify those past experiences which continue to prevent them from moving forward. Connecting those past experiences along with a person's present mindset can lead to a discovery of what is missing and/or why they appear stuck in a cycle that they do not like. Working toward a life which includes freedom from past traumatic experiences and moving toward a joy filled life is my desire for all of my clients.

Mrs. Bidwell has been phenomenal. She has brought light to what I've gone through in my past and provided tools and exercises that helped me on my journey. She is very nice, professional and transparent. I only ended my services with her because we accomplished everything that I needed work on. Thank you again Mrs. Bidwell! You've helped change my life.

Diane is a wonderful, supportive and highly experienced therapist. She is so intuitive and kind during our sessions and I’m so grateful to have been matched with her.

Written by K.I. on Dec 21, 2021 after therapy with Diane for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, self esteem, coping with life changes, coaching, compassion fatigue, and adhd

Almost exactly two months of therapy and the progress and healing has been amazing! I went from crying everyday, low energy, anxiety and strong depression to now being joyful, energized, self aware and hopeful. Processing past traumas using EMDR techniques and talk-therapy have brought quick healing as I was fully invested in healing and Diane was able to facilitate that very well! So incredibly thankful for my Diane and my time receiving counseling as I am now able to stop/take a break from it and continue on independently and well.

She's patient and empathetic in talking through any variety of mental and emotional challenges, and offers practical solutions to working through them in small steps.

Diane has been such amazing help getting me back on track. I started off in a bit of a rut, and she helped me explore the causes and worked from there. Her experience is not just for show it can be seen in the way she works with you. I would give her 10/10 and would recommend her to any who is in need of help.

Work with me!
