I am a licensed marriage and family therapist, licensed since 1981 and blessed in my journey to have been trusted enough to help others grow in their lives. I am a get to work type person and can be pretty direct in my approach in a what I hope is also a kind, understanding and caring approach. I believe in education, because knowledge is power and learning new skills to manage the bumps in the road of life is important. I try to see what might be most helpful for people based on their views and what they believe and their hopes and goals. I am well trained in trauma informed treatment, cognitive behavioral therapy, family systems and dialectical therapy. I believe those approaches provide both skills and understanding to help a person move forward when they seem to be stuck, which truly happens to us all. I look forward to seeing how we can partner to unstick you and help you move forward in this journey called life.

Dianne is a great therapist. She listened to what I shared and was able to offer ways to help integrate new ways to see my situation and move forward in a positive direction. But most importantly she checked in repeatedly throughout to highlight what we talked about. I highly recommend her! Thanks Dianne
