Dr. Diane O'Brien


About Me

Do you often find yourself struggling to sort out your thoughts and feelings about events in your life? Have there been times in your life when you have wondered if you have made the right choices or if there are other possibilities for you? We have all experienced life changing experiences that have shaped us into the people we are today. Sometimes, a listening ear is all we need. Other times, more in-depth exploration of thoughts and feelings is needed before you can feel better. Whichever situation fits for you, I am here to help.

I have been in practice for over 20 years and have had experience working with a diverse group of individuals, couples, and families. Together, we have explored trauma events and their impact on individuals and families, family relationships, couples’ issues, and depression, anxiety, infidelity, spiritual dilemmas, and other experiences that have an effect on day-to-day living. My experience extends to working with adolescents, as well as to an older population and caregivers. Working with individuals who are in the early stages of dementia or Alzheimer's Disease are a new and interesting population for me.

For me, counseling is a passion. Being a counselor is a calling, it encompasses me as a person and as a professional. It is my hope that you will contact me for counseling so that I can be your companion on your journey to a more peaceful and satisfying future.

I felt comfortable speaking with Dr. O’Brien right from the first moment. She was empathetic and understanding. I never felt judged or silly. She gave me worksheets and homework between sessions and advice on what to work on. I found her to be calm and helpful.
