Dr. Dianne Doyle

(Ph.D.)

About Me

Hi! I am a licensed psychologist, certified Master Addiction Counselor, and author. I have 20-plus years of experience working in private and public agencies, including hospitals, rehabilitation programs, and halfway houses. I have helped many people with a wide range of concerns including anxiety, depression, substance abuse and other addictive behaviors, relationship issues, parenting problems, and career challenges. I have also taught counseling courses and provided clinical supervision at a college level and I am the author of a textbook on addiction counseling: Mastering Addictions Counseling.

My counseling approach is warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with empathy and respect. I am non-judgmental and genuine. My primary therapeutic approach is motivational interviewing and cognitive-behavioral therapy. Motivational interviewing helps you identify what it is you value and from that starting point, what goals you are motivated to achieve. We work together to create a treatment plan adapted to your individual needs and goals. Cognitive-behavioral therapy focuses on your beliefs or thoughts and the relationship between your thoughts, feelings, and behavior. We know that by changing our beliefs, we can change our feelings and behaviors.

It takes courage to seek a more purposeful and satisfying life and to take the first step toward change. If you are ready to take that first step, I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!

Diane has been so helpful in addressing my concerns. I am so impressed with the insight that she has into what I describe, even though we have never met in person! She is very supportive and kind.

I am so happy I tried BetterHelp. I was in a bad way, and without health insurance. BetterHelp matched me with Dr. Doyle, and her services through the app are so accessible. She's incredibly kind and empathetic, and really listens. I value her advice, and my treatment feels like a collaboration between the two of us. It's been about 3 weeks, and I already feel better - supported and guided by Dr. Doyle.

Dr Doyle is absolutely fantastic. Her expertise has allowed me to see myself within, and work on myself more thoroughly. She has been guiding me into finding the best version of myself. I feel so comfortable and confident when I speak to her, as if I’ve known her my whole life- with no judgement. I am very grateful for Dr Doyle.

Dr Doyle helped me understand and grow so much in the past few months. I really appreciate my talk with her every week- it allows me to reflect on my week, become aware of the root cause of my various thoughts and feelings, and go forward to start a new week with a better understanding of myself and a sense of security that she will be there to listen and talk me through if I need anything. She makes me feel comfortable and nature sharing feelings and thoughts, that was hard for me to talk about with others, with her. Her encouraging messages and patience have really helped me establish my self-esteem, learn to value my own goals and purposes. Thank you :)

I was hesitant to start therapy on these portals, but I am hooked now. Dr Doyle & This format fits my schedule way better than traditional talk therapy and is really helping me so much better bc I can review our sessions.
