In the old days, the path the traders took in order to make their living was the Oregon Trail. It was a rough journey, but those who could make it to the end felt rewarded. In life, it can be a bit like a trail. It’s smooth sailing, and then something happens to make the journey difficult. 

A counselor can help cross any trail life has to offer, and they can benefit you by being your guard to pass the trail as quickly as possible.

My name is Shayna Diaz and I’m honored to be able to hold space for people to engage in self-reflection and experience growth in a judgement free space. I firmly believe that externalizing some of the negative and unhelpful self-talk that goes on in our heads can help us to begin to look at ourselves and our lives through a new lens, and increase feelings of hopefulness and empowerment. In a society where we often are encouraged to “keep things light” I aim to provide people a space to show up as their authentic selves and receive direct feedback and...

I have enjoyed the dynamic client/counselor relationship for 25 years. I realize the courage it takes to get started and to share your story. A healthy life is full of change and growth and uncertainty. Most of us want certainty, wanting to hold onto beliefs even when they don’t serve us. Change is difficult and it is an inevitable part of life. The times when we are challenged the most often prove to be our greatest opportunities for growth. We usually don’t choose our hardships, though we can participate in our healing and use them as a catalyst for chang...
