Do you sometimes wonder if you’re stuck in either a recurring relationship pattern that you know you don’t like or an unfulfilling job, and whatever you have tried doesn’t quite work?
So, you recognize that you’re blocked by procrastination, low motivation, anxiety, depression, or low self-confidence that leaves you either reluctant or unable to take risks on your own behalf to make your life better.
Rest assured, there is real help.
I am trained in evidenced-based (scientifically researched) psychotherapies and have helped many clients break through internal barriers and learn how to think, feel and behave differently in a shorter amount of time than most traditional psychotherapies.
Do you find yourself uncertain about how to best navigate the employment marketplace? Or perhaps you don’t even know what you want to do, or how to articulate your contribution to a prospective employer. I can help you.
Have you have already tried to work with another career counselor and gotten stuck in the process? There is a way through that gridlock.
Do you need a concrete strategy that makes you feel optimistic about your work life, and generates some new options or a fresh, new way of thinking? Let me help.
I offer workshops and trainings of various lengths (from one-hour session to day-long programs) on such diverse topics as Developing Assertiveness, Preventing Burnout, Effective Communication in the Workplace, Couples Communication, Interrupting Procrastination, Handling Difficult People, Breaking Cycle of Emotion Driven Eating, Goal Setting, Time Management, and more.
I have presented at universities, large corporations, small businesses, religious congregations, nonprofit organizations, and other settings.
Yoga, Publications, and More.
As a trained and experienced yoga teacher, I teach classes in a wide variety of settings. I also can integrate helpful yoga technique (breathing and gentle movement) where appropriate during psychotherapy, for example when it would be useful to experience greater calmness while addressing challenging issues.
I provide case consultation for other psychotherapists practicing the ISTDP method of counseling.
I have published significant writings in my areas of expertise.
|[One of Diane’s therapy supervisors:]
[A case of Diane's I recently reviewed] was the most impressive outcome of ISTDP therapy I have ever seen! Just amazing. The depth of change, the depth of feeling, the subtlety of her comments and their timing. Just one moment of beauty after another — a true masterpiece. With these recent cases I've been seeing of hers, she has truly vaulted up into the elite. Super impressive work. I'm so pleased to have been a part of her development and to see these amazing results. I have told the faculty at the Washington School of Psychiatry that we have to have Diane on our list of people to invite in the future.
