My name is Myron Dianiska, a Licensed Psychological Associate and Licensed Professional Counselor in New Jersey and Texas. I have over 50 years of experience in the mental health field, and currently operate a private practice in Sugar Land Tx.
My primary work is with adults who are experiencing difficulties with habit disorders (smoking), anxiety, phobias and career choice difficulties. I also work with adolescents, athletes, particularly runners, who want to improve their performance and improve their mental toughness. My overall approach is a holistic one, as I believe good nutrition, sleep habits and exercise are fundamental to mental health.
My approach is based on developing a strong therapeutic relationship, within a cognitive-behavioral model. More recently I have developed an expertise in virtual reality exposure therapy (VRET). This new, exciting technology, compared to traditional behavior therapy, has proved to be more effective, faster, practical and increases therapy privacy. VRET can be utilized to work with a variety of mental health issues, most notably anxiety, phobias, depression, trauma, stress, ADHD, OCD and PTSD. but also to train individuals in mindfulness and relaxation. Chronic pain sufferers experience relief by using the technology of virtual reality. The significant advantage of VRET is that it can be done remotely with the appropriate platform, using only a smart phone and a Google cardboard headset or equivalent. There is no need for office visits.
I completed my MS in clinical psychology at Ohio University in 1972 and my MBA at the University of Houston in 1984. My professional experience includes working in the various sectors of the mental health field, including addiction rehabilitation, residential treatment, state mental hospital, private psychiatric hospitals, private practice, and in schools. I have experience with all ages and all levels of mental health severity.

It was great talking through my problems with him, he is good at listening and giving helpful, effective advice. Sessions with him helped me calm down from whatever I was facing and create an action plan for how to help resolve it. 10/10 would recommend.

I have only had two sessions with Myron so far but both times I was left feeling like my mind was a little bit more clear and looking forward to my next session. Myron has done nothing but listen and offer advice and gives me different things to look into and try. I am happy that Myron was matched with me and I expect great things between him and I!
