Diane has helped me through some pretty traumatic times and provided ways for me to find peace again with myself through hw, additional reading materials, and really staying in the moment. I am glad that Diane is part of my efforts of making myself better. Thank you

Diane is a good listener and very open minded and approachable. She helps to put my problems into context and provides emotional support. I saw a few other Betterhelp therapists before her and she was the best.

Diane is wonderful. Thoughtful, measured, responsive, and kind. She is the first ear I’ve had available to me that has made me feel heard. While I’ve only been interacting with her for a short time, I am already incredibly grateful for her presence and time. She has been nothing short of professional, compassionate, and human.
