About Me

Reaching out and asking for help is one of the hardest parts of therapy. I’m proud of you for taking that first step and glad that it led you to me.

My name is Diane DellaVella and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Pennsylvania with over 10 years of experience working with individuals, families, and children. My approach is focused on understanding your needs and developing a relationship built on trust. I want you to feel comfortable sharing your experiences and feelings with me, so that we can work together as a team to help you reach your fullest potential.

I have worked extensively with clients that have depression, anxiety, relationship and dating issues, career challenges, acculturation, OCD and ADHD. I am well versed in attachment theory, separation and caregiver issues, infertility, pregnancy and postpartum mental health, parenting, and adoption.

Our sessions will always be a safe place where you will be treated with consistent respect and genuine, positive regard. You will be welcome to cry when you need to and laugh when you want to. Afterall, we are all human and laughter can be the best medicine.

I believe we are all capable of working towards a better future as we learn more about ourselves. All we need is a little grace and perspective. I would love to take this journey with you!

She’s very kind, easy to talk to, and very knowledgeable

I’m fairly new to counseling, but it isn’t hard to see its benefits thanks in large part to Diane DellaVella’s help. I feel she has a solid understanding of my issues and hang-ups, as well as the things about myself I want to improve and change. She helps me set realistic goals, and her encouragement and insight have already helped me understand myself better, increasing my confidence. There’s much more work to do, but I’m grateful to have Diane’s guidance along the way.
