My Approach to Helping

As a Licensed Associate Counselor, Diane is uniquely positioned to provide a safe space for non-judgmental, open-minded, friendly and genuine therapy as she brings over 8 years of highly relevant mental health experience. Diane utilizes a Person-Centered approach, developing a strong rapport, unconditional positive regard, and a deep level of trust with all of her clients while fervently empowering them to make changes that lead to a healthier and happier lifestyle. Specifically, Diane employs an Eclectic approach to treatment which allows her to customize the therapy provided for each client’s unique needs and goals. Diane brings a wealth of knowledge having worked with a wide range of adults, adolescents and children as well as experience with individual, group, crisis work and outpatient settings.

More Info About My Practice

“Entering therapy was like entering a world of love and compassion. It felt comforting to finally interact with someone who would be with me in my darkness, listen to me, and reach out to every part of me who wanted to live.”-Hedda Riktor

Diane loves being around her family and close friends, traveling the world to experience different cultures, making people laugh, and hiking. Diane would consider herself to be a big foodie and enjoys cooking various types of food from all over the world.
