About Me

Welcome and I applaud you on taking the first step toward getting your life where you would like it to be. Reaching out can be scary and I would love the opportunity to assist you on your journey. Life can be challenging and my goal is to help you explore your options. I have a master's degree in mental health counseling from Capella University. I have more than 10 years combined experience in mental health. As a licensed as a professional counselor in Georgia, I have worked with others that are feeling stuck in their lives. My counseling experience can work to your advantage. My counseling approach is brief solution focused therapy and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). My goal is to help you where you are now to get to where you want to be. While this is online, it isn't a "quick fix" and you will have to do some 'work' to get to where you want to go. Whether you feel depressed, anxious, feeling overwhelmed, or not sure of your next steps, let's talk so we can explore your next steps. I believe you can do this. Be empowered!

Getting actionable steps to help me over my struggles has been extremely helpful. Diane listens to what is happening and helps me sets up a game plan to figure out how to change habits. She's responsive and insightful while remaining light. I appreciate her very much.

Diane was so supportive of me. I've tried multiple counselors but I truly felt that Diane offered the best balance between listening and problem-solving. She has taught me so much about how to approach my emotions in a calm and mature manner, and I've built up a close relationship with her over these few weeks. Really would recommend!

Diane has been such a tremendous help on a lot of things for! She is always there when I need her and I’m so thankful!

Diane is great. She’s helped me through hard times and everyday battles. I know when I have no one to turn to, Diane is only a message away with words of encouragement to keep me going. Anyone who has Diane as a counselor is lucky to have her.

I have gone through quite a few therapists in my life. Diane is the only one who I feel like truly sees and respects me as a person. I look forward to talking to her and am willing to tell her my more “embarrassing” thoughts or feelings because I know she won’t ever judge me, but will meet me where I am at. Many counselors say they do this, but only few “walk the walk.” I appreciate Diane very much for her compassion.

Written by S.U. on May 22, 2019 after counseling with Diane for 10 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related issues, eating disorders, self esteem, career difficulties, and bipolar disorder

I like her. And I definitely have grown since we started working together. Sometimes I wish she went into more detail, but I think that has more to do with me, than her.

I have been experiencing a major change and Diane has made it much easier to work through. She is always compassionate and understanding, and tried to understand situations from my point of view. Every time I've spoken with her, I leave the conversation with a fresh perspective.

Diane does a great job of listening and providing prompt feedback and support for my ongoing needs. She's attentive, flexible and able to adapt to the changes in my life.

She has been amazing for helping me talk through the things I think about internally and providing an outlet to help me direct my search for answers to the right spots in my behavior and brain activity. I am grateful for being able to have some supportive guidance as I work through these issues.

My conversations with Diane have been pleasant, even when discussing difficult topics. Moreover, while I’ve felt embarrassed about some of thing things I’ve shared with her, she’s never once judged me or rushed to blame. It really helps to be able to speak with her earnestly like that.

Diane is the therapist that I wish I had found years ago. After having horrible experiences with half a dozen, it is a miracle that I found a person so warm, open minded and incredibly helpful to fully trust. I hope she sticks around!!!

Written by C.H. on Aug 08, 2018 after counseling with Diane for 1 month on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, intimacy-related, and self esteem

I found Diane when I had almost given up on counselling. I have always avoided speaking with a counsellor for many reasons, but having a chance to talk to Diane has cleared all my doubts. I have trusted her with secrets that I do not feel comfortable discussing even with my closest friends.

Diane has been and continues to be amazing! She has a lot of well-guided insight to share with me and is currently my anchor while I take back control over my life. I am experiencing relationship issues which I am for the first time in my life unable to guide or control. Diane Gores has been patient, understanding & wise in the way she responds to my writings and I am, grateful to have her on my side!
