About Me

Emily utilizes cognitive behavioral therapy with her clients with a person centered focus. She incorporates mindfulness into her therapy to allow others to experience fully all the things life has to offer. Being more engaged in the present moment can lead to a richer experience of the things that might otherwise pass us by while we are wrapped up in thoughts about the past or relentlessly thinking about what we are doing next. For example noticing the leaves dancing on a tree, a bird soaring in the wind, the smell of new blossom, the color of the sky or the smile on the face of someone as they pass by.

Written by M.A on Nov 02, 2014 after counseling with Emily for 2 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, grief, self esteem, and depression

Emily Diaz and I have been using BetterHelp to work out my issues for about two months now. She always reads carefully what I have to say, and provides substantive feedback and useful, practical advice. It is clear she puts a lot of thought and effort into her replies. I can't fault her. She is far better than some therapists I have seen in person, and this system of written communication at BetterHelp suits me well.
