About Me

My primary focus is using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to help my clients process their thoughts, feelings and emotions. Though this is my primary counseling style, I use an eclectic range of therapy. Including but not limited to Solution Focus Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, and Reality Therapy. I have experience in working with adolescents, adults and the elderly. It is my passion and purpose to help equip people to become the best version of themselves. I apply my educational knowledge as a Clinical Mental Health Therapist by teaching practical applications. I am grateful to say I have been able to help people get through their most difficult times and life circumstances. I believe my desire to help people has given me a great level of success. I have many years of experience in marriage counseling, family counseling as well as christian counseling. My qualifications include a Masters Degree in Clinical Mental Health from the University of Houston-Victoria, obtaining my National Certified Counselor certification and a Doctrine Degree in Theology. Through my experience I have been able to assist a diverse group of people in dealing with life circumstances. This has now equipped me with Evidence-Based Therapeutic Counseling tools to further advance my skills as a Counselor. I know that I am capable of helping people live their best lives and welcome the opportunity to prove it!

Dianne helped me realize that things will get better with time, gave me tips to help relieve what I was feeling inside and to let it all out. I really enjoy my sessions with Dianne. I really appreciate being able to have a non-judgmental session that actually helps you to realize the value of life, to enjoy the time you have on this earth, and make it meaningful. At first I was skeptical thinking she is not an African American so she will not understand my struggles....but oh was I wrong, she definitely understood. Again I really appreciate her for helping me during my difficult times.

Work with me!
