She/Her/HersLicensed Clinical Social Worker, LCSW Masters of Business Administration, MBA Specialties • Insurance & Fees • Locations
Diane Lopez is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Psychoanalyst specializing in depression, anxiety, relationship issues, workplace issues, trauma, and grief. Her work with individuals and couples focuses on understanding and reworking the impact of early experiences, especially in one’s family of origin. She finds it deeply gratifying to engage clients in reworking these early templates and helping them create positive, long-lasting changes in their lives.
Diane spent more than 15 years working with Fortune 100 companies on issues around organizational effectiveness, leadership development and employee satisfaction. She brings her business experience to help clients navigate workplace conflicts and other obstacles to career satisfaction.
Diane often works with clients struggling with a harsh internal critic. This incessant critic can hold us back from being our full selves and achieving personal and professional goals. By creating a safe, non-judgmental space, Diane encourages exploration of the roots of that negative self-talk and facilitates a new perspective and compassion towards the self that leads to true healing.
In her work with couples, Diane helps partners better understand the influence of their respective histories and how that impacts their expectations, reactivity and communication patterns. She uses this understanding to help couples resolve conflict and re-establish connection.
In addition, Diane uses mindfulness-based body awareness in her work. This includes breathwork and an expanded awareness of the ways trauma lodges itself in our bodies. Diane believes that the journey towards healing involves establishing and nourishing a connection between our physical and emotional selves.
