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.

I am a licensed Psychologist with over 10 years clinical experience helping individuals and couples who are experiencing emotional distress or who find themselves living a life without passion, intimacy, or authenticity. I believe that every client needs to feel safe and accepted as they explore their thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. I also believe that most of the time we don’t know what we are experiencing deep within ourselves. Typically no one takes the time to really listen to us and we don’t actually listen to ourselves at this deep level. I strive ...

It was Irvin Yalom who said something to the effect that "psychotherapy is like a dress rehearsal for life". With this said, it is my intention to not only offer you support in therapy but to also help you generalize the skills you learn in therapy and apply them in your outside life and relationships. I specialize in anger, depression, and anxiety management for adults and adolescents. I also enjoy working with highly intelligent adults and teens who have a difficult time adjusting and adapting socially. This includes working with individuals on the high function...

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...
