I am a Licensed Professional Counselor currently licensed in the state of Oklahoma, and was a therapist at Oklahoma City at a Trauma and Abuse Center for 8 years, but have begun my own private practice. I have a great deal of experience in assessment/treatment planning, . I have worked with individuals of varying ages, from 4 to 99. Along with trauma and abuse, I work with individuals with depression, anxiety and panic issues; relationship/couples issues, parenting difficulties, life changes, grief and loss, self esteem and self worth, Bipolar disorder, among others. I have also worked with parents and children who are involved in the Child Welfare System who are working toward reunification,
My educational background includes two Master degrees, the first from the University of Oklahoma in Human Relations (M.H.R.) and a second from Southwestern Oklahoma State University in Community Counseling (M.S.) I graduated with honors at both universities. I am also a National Certified Counselor (NCC).
My counseling style is warm and interactive, and I utilize a combination of several theoretic approaches, including Cognitive Behavioral, Person Centered/Humanistic, Narrative and Solution Focused therapy.
I believe that we are all unique individuals and I look forward to working with you to identify your specific needs and to formulate specific and effective treatment for you. I feel that all individuals should be treated with kindness and respect, and I believe that most of us experience times in our lives that we could a little extra help with one or more areas in our lives, and I would love to have the opportunity to work with you!

LPC #4818 (Expires: 2021-06-30)
She's genuine and real.
So helpful and personable. It's like talking to a friend every time.
It is very easy to form a connection with as a therapist. Diane alleviated any early fears that I felt stupid for thinking certain things. I am looking forward to a continued relationship.
Very nice and gentle, focused and a good listener.
Diane is so kind and understanding! She's helped me a lot seeing things in a different perspective and she's always non-judgmental. She's always there to listen and is always checking in on you. You can tell she loves this job!
