Hello, my name is Dianne Feria. I am an experienced pscyhotherapist in the State of Texas. I have worked with a variety of clients in a variety of settings. I started my career in the mental health field working at my local jail which opened up my eyes to the mental health challenges of this community. Here, I worked with issues including depression, anxiety, panic attacks, chemical dependence, incest, sexual trauma, and psychosis. I was able to practice the skill of being present with my clients, working with the limitations of their situation, yet helping them increase their coping skills, identifying their triggers, and increase their frustration tolerance. Most important for this population, I was able to help them address their trauma, which many times, played a role in the negative actions that lead them to their legal predicament. I later moved on to working with women and children of domestic violence. I learned the most important thing I can do for this population was listen and empower. This, I carried with me to all my future sessions to this day.
I have also worked in behavioral hospitals and crisis centers where I honed my skills in deescalating crisis situations, solidified my assessment skills, as well as strenghtened my knowledge base on community and national resources. My outpatient experience is what I fondly remember most of all. I throughly enjoyed working with clients in an individual, family, and couple setting. Here, the issues I was able to assist were both diverse and challenging. I've worked with individual diagnosed with personality disorders, depression, anxiety, PTSD, and disociative identity disorder. I was able to apply all therapeutic skills in this setting as well as grow as a person and therapist. I am excited to take this new journal in my career inassisting you overcome the challenges you're experiencing today,
I am a psychodynamic therapist who integrates Cognitive Behavioral Therapy ( CBT) and Solution focused therapy (SFBT) in my sessions. I look into the dynamics of your relationships and your family of origin to help you gain insight on your beliefs, thoughts, and actions. . I use SFBT to help my clients identify current behaviors and strengths that they have utilized in the past which may apply to the current situation and use CBT to encourage my clients practice new skills and behaviors. It is in the process of self-reflection and the application of behavior that we can elicit change and therefore happiness in our lives, which I believe you deserve. I will be here to support, guide, encourage and assist you in the process of discovering and empowering yourself.

Dianne provided exceptional feedback for how to handle situations that I experienced. I feel safe speaking with her about things that I am unable to share with people close to me.

I owe so much to Dianne. She's literally helped me through the worst time in my life, and has been such a constant source of support and trust throughout a very turbulent time for me & helped me rebuild myself in a manner that I so sorely needed.
Dianne is insightful while being compassionate and caring. I cannot put into words the value my time with Dianne has meant to my overall perspective.

Based on Dianne's profile I had a feeling she would be a great fit for me and she was. Speaking with her has been very helpful. She is a great listener and challenges me to think as we speak. I am very comfortable to be open in our sessions. She sets a open and inviting tone which makes it easy to talk to her! I am grateful for taking this step to get the assistance I needed. It doesn't feel like therapy more so just a different outlook on addressing life's issues.
