Diana M Gonzales-Ricard, LCSW-R, is the owner of Mi Alegria Psychotherapy LCSW, PLLC. She has been trained in CBT and ERP for OCD and is certified in ACT as well as treatment for Body Repetitive Movement Disorders. In addition, she is a ceritifed NLP practioner and Hypnotherapist. Our two additional therapists, Jenna Bagnini, LMSW and Grace Tilearcio, LMSW, receive ongoing individual and group supervision and are encouraged and supported in seeking out additional trainings to grow as therapists. Mi Alegria Psychotherapy also offers psychopharmacology under our in-house psychiatrist, Dr C Timothy Longshore.

We understand that change is hard. Even when people are unhappy with how their lives are going, there is comfort in allowing things to stay the same. We believe in meeting people where they are in a non-judgmental, accepting environment. We do not believe that it is up to the therapist to change or "fix" anyone. Rather, a therapist should be there to help guide and facilitate change by actively listening and challenging the patient, when appropriate, to help change ways of thinking that are keeping the individual stuck in unhealthy patterns.
