“If we can share our story with someone who responds with empathy and understanding, shame can't survive.” - Brene Brown
“The process of starting or returning to therapy can be overwhelming but I am so
glad you’re here! Regardless of your past or present challenges, I want to help
you move toward living a rich, full, and meaningful life in a way that aligns with
your identity and values.”
Practicing with openness and curiosity, Dianna places great importance in
meeting her clients where they are and creating a safe and nonjudgmental space
in which they can collaborate and practice healthy coping skills to strengthen
their relationship with themselves and others. Her goal is to create a patient and
productive environment based on mutual trust and understanding in which her
clients can practice curiosity and self-compassion as they explore the present
moment and express themselves safely.
Guided by evidence-based therapies, she believes in adapting multiple
modalities in treatment to best fit her clients’ unique needs. She is both trauma-
informed and trauma-aware, which allows her to draw upon relevant fields in her
practice and be attuned to the possible role of trauma as she helps her clients
navigate through difficult emotions and life transitions.
As an inclusive and affirming therapist, Dianna also incorporates sensitivity and
respect to differences in opinions and values of various cultures and welcomes
individuals of all gender identities, sexual identities, and cultural identities.
Dianna believes that therapy can be a transformative process and is honored to
support and walk alongside her clients in their journey of self-growth and healing.
Dianna lives in Atlanta, Ga., and when she isn’t working, she enjoys trying out
new restaurants, hanging out with family and friends, and relaxing with a hot cup
