About Diana

I am an Associate Marriage and Family Therapist, originally from Los Angeles, California, and currently practicing here. My professional journey has been diverse and includes establishing and managing my own small business. In October 2020, I became a suicide hotline counselor, work I found intensely fulfilling. I became driven by a strong desire to help alleviate distress and crisis that can result from trauma, and decided to enroll in the Master’s of Clinical Psychology program at Antioch University to become a therapist.

 

Throughout my life I’ve often heard the critique “you’re too sensitive”, which I was conditioned to believe was bad. However, now I know sensitivity is a strength in which I can take pride. I embrace my sensitivity and welcome the expression of any and all emotions. I firmly believe that everyone deserves to be heard, seen, and believed. I recognize how listening and being fully present with someone can be a transformative and life-changing experience.  

 

Outside of sessions, I enjoy attending live shows, cooking, drumming, and spending time with my favorite people and also my cat.
