Relationships are a catalyst for change—especially positive therapeutic relationships.

Diana’s counseling approach takes into account the importance of a positive relationship between counselor and client. This approach relies heavily on not just therapeutic interventions and techniques, but also on the quality of the relationship between client and counselor. Each client who enters the counseling office should feel heard, accepted, and safe. Diana also believes that counseling should be a collaborative approach, not just a one-sided relationship. Together, Diana works with her clients to develop healthy coping skills and to build a plan of action to tackle whatever the client might be struggling with.

Diana has experience working with adults, teenagers, and children in both a clinical setting as well as in an inpatient psychiatric setting. Art is also a powerful tool Diana can bring into sessions to help her clients process emotions that words may not be able to fully convey.

Regardless of what her clients are struggling with, past or present, Diana wants to come alongside them and help them navigate on a journey toward change.

Because Diana believes in the importance of the client and counselor having a positive relationship, she is offering a free 15-20 minute consultation, during which Diana will get to know her client and why they are coming in.

Currently, Diana is only offering telehealth sessions. Diana lives in Fort Worth and enjoys walking her dog, photography, and reading fantasy and mystery novels. She received her bachelor’s degree in Writing from Texas Christian University in 2012 and her master’s degree in Counseling from Dallas Theological Seminary. While earning her master’s, she studied marital and family relationships from a family systems approach and sexuality, specifically how Christians can come to a healthy, non-repressive approach to teaching sexuality to adults and children alike. She also has a passion for ensuring that all voices are heard in the discussion on sexuality, sexual identity, and Christianity.
