My name is Diane Wend-Welch and I am licensed in the State of Virginia and have been working in the mental health field for over 20 years. I've worked on hospital units with individuals who are feeling depressed, anxious, suicidal as well as well as those diagnosed with more severe mental health issues. I have also worked in private practice with couples, and individuals, and I currently have my own business.
I use the Cognitive Behavioral Therapy approach because individuals
don't always understand that they feel the way they think, toxic thoughts are a real thing, and how to spot your own thinking errors. We all have those! I have personally had my own life issues with family (who doesn't) and learned that I play my own part within the family system and I needed to change. It wasn't easy but I made it and you can too.
If you are ready to work towards a better life for yourself , I would be happy to work with you.
Additional areas of focus: Hospice and End of Life Counseling, Infidelity

Diane was professional and very kind to us. We spent a short time with her but in that time we learned about Cognitive Behavioral Therapy! She was a very good listener and had a lot of amazing feedback and pointers! We would absolutely recommend her to any couples needing therapy or even just someone to talk to.

New to tele video therapy, and it is worth a try. It helps when someone asks you to think differently. I am going to give my time to allow for change.
