Hello! I am a Clinical Social Worker based in Spokane and am licensed in Washington and Idaho. I have been working in the counseling field for 11 years. I received my master’s degree in social work from Eastern Washington University and my bachelor’s degree from Brigham Young University-Hawaii. I am originally from Hawaii and moved to Spokane for graduate school.
My approach to therapy is client-centered. I enjoy helping people take steps towards living their values and achieving their goals. I have worked with clients in several areas. I am most experienced in providing career counseling. Career counseling includes work/life balance, career/vocational exploration, career transitions, workplace concerns (getting along with coworkers, bosses, etc.), and other workplace-related stress/anxiety. I draw from multiple treatment modalities including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Motivational Interviewing (MI).
I look forward to working with you!
Additional areas of focus: Grief, Depression, ADHD, Communication Problems, Life Purpose, Workplace Issues
Clinical approaches: Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Client-Centered Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Motivational Interviewing

Diane was able to work with me to help me center myself on my core values, which was the key to unlocking my ability to start enjoying my life again. She’s patient, kind, friendly, insightful, and responsive. Thank you Diane!
