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!

Thank you for helping me become the best version of myself!

I have only had one session with Dianne Dabney but it was a great one. Although there is still work to be done for me, but I look forward to the other sessions that I have with her.

Dr. Dabney is such a caring perso , she listens, and gives a perspective you might not have thought about. She is very straight forward, and very understanding. She gives examples from her life if she thinks they help, and for you to know you arent alone. She is awesome and makes the thought of therapy less nerve wracking!
