Hi! I’m Diana.
As a therapist, I consider it a privilege to sit with you while you share your story. Together we can forge a path that will allow you to live your life with confidence, authenticity and passion.
The counseling theories used include:
• Mentalization: to help you understand your feelings and those of others,
• Psychodynamic: to understand the unconscious forces that underlie your thoughts and behaviors which come from early childhood,
• Mindfulness: awareness of present moment without judgment, and
• Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT): which counteracts the negative thinking of anxiety, identifies the problem, and brainstorms solutions.
Techniques used include:
Somatic (body) tools including: emotional freedom technique (tapping) and brainspotting. These help to release blocks holding you back from moving forward.
Meditation which includes mindfulness and guided imagery.
Affirmations which are the creation of positive statements used to build confidence and hope.
Symbology using dream interpretation, oracle, inner active, and tarot cards.
