My Approach to Helping

ALERT! Virtual sessions are the only sessions offered at this time.

Life isn’t always easy. Sometimes, even the strongest people amongst us need a little bit of help to work through some of life’s more challenging problems. Everyone has battles to fight and hurdles to overcome at some point. Whether you struggle with historical trauma, PTSD, anxiety, depression, self-esteem, or any other issue, you should know that there is hope for a better tomorrow.

Dianna McFarlane, MSW, LCSW-C, LICSW, is a practicing clinical social worker in Maryland and Washington, DC. Ms. McFarlane earned her B.S. in Social Work in 2002, and her Master of Social Work from the University of Maryland, Baltimore in 2003. Her early years of practice primarily focused on working with children and families involved with child welfare, providing clinical services in various settings, including community mental health, family court, child welfare agencies and non-profit organizations. She has worked in direct practice and in administrative positions where she provided professional development training, consultation, and clinical supervision to graduate social workers and professional counselors.

In her diverse clinical practice, Ms. McFarlane has been instrumental in working with clients experiencing adverse effects from unresolved trauma and has helped many individuals and families move through their healing journey. Her clinical work is grounded in trauma-focused practice from an attachment-based perspective throughout her career. She believes that understanding the intersectionality of attachment, trauma, grief, and loss is critical in assisting clients as they progress through their treatment. This belief is not only the framework of her practice with clients but is also the lens she offers in her training, consultations with non-profits, and supervision of graduate licensed clinicians.

Ms. McFarlane is also a trained EMDR therapist pursuing certification.
