Message to clients

I am dedicated to meeting the emotional and psychological needs of my clients. My approach is to be caring and compassionate, while also trying to be direct in guiding clients through their process. I believe that counseling can help individuals and families move in new directions, fostering growth and a sense of well-being. I work with people from all walks of life. Change is possible; what we long for is not beyond reach.
My goal in working with clients is to help them gain the skills needed to cope effectively with life’s stressors, engage meaningfully with others, manage distressing feelings, regulate emotions, reduce impulsivity, increase self-confidence, communicate effectively, and to learn to express their needs successfully. I am a firm believer that we all want to do well.

Client testimonials

"Diana was welcoming and helpful but also transparent about next steps for scheduling and payment. I appreciated that."
- Zencare client • July 2021
"She listened, understood, and really heard what has been going on with my daughter."
- Zencare client • May 2020
"Diana was the first therapist I saw; we worked together when I was in high school. At first, I was very hesitant to seek therapy, and she made the whole process seem so comfortable and non-threatening. I really wasn’t used to speaking about myself or my feelings at all, and she helped me normalize that, realize the importance, and see my anxieties from a clear point of view, without ever coming off as patronizing or judgmental. She cares deeply about her patients and a decade later, she remains the best therapist I have ever worked with!"
