"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!"- Long-time client • December 2019
"She listened, understood, and really heard what has been going on with my daughter. "- Zencare client • May 2020
