"My best friend posted a bunch of pictures with some of our friends, but I wasn't included! My boyfriend is pressuring me to take certain pictures and is mad when I say no! I'm starting to fall behind in my classes and its stressing me out! I don't want to turn my phone off because I might miss something and it wakes me up all night." Friends, bully's, social media, time management, sports, family... Why is this happening to me? HELP!!!
These are a few consistent issues that I have worked with in all my years of being a therapist. I began my career in education and then decided to change directions to seek a career in individual and school counseling. I was seeing so many kids struggle with issues that extended far beyond the typical academic problems and realized how important it is to help them readjust their thinking and rebuild their personal self concept. I work predominately from a cognitive-behavioral approach, although I also use mindful based cognitive-behavioral therapy to help your child manage their breathing and learn relaxation skills. I also work from a person-centered, positive psychology and solutions-focused approach.
I know that getting teens to go to a counseling appointment can be difficult which is why online counseling is such a positive solution. Technology and teens naturally fit together so this is the perfect example of meeting your child in the middle! I would love to help your teenager grow and develop in a more fulfilling way, develop positive coping skills, eliminate negative coping skills and grow to love themselves more. Please contact me if I can help!

Diahnn is extremely understanding and caring, I couldn’t recommend her enough.
She is open to learning about asexuality and genderfluidty. I feel very comfortable speaking to her.
C. Diahnn Austenfeld is one amazing professional, it has being a great experience talking to her, even being in a different country and time zone, she's very quick to respond and very easy to talk to. She is helpful and respectful to my concerns and anything I feel the need to discuss, I could never ask for a better counselor.
She is the best counselor ever! I am so lucky to have her as my counselor.
She's amazing professional. I've seen few counselors but always struggled to find someone who actually help you to let go your past instead of just talking about it. She adapted to my needs, she's a wonderful caring listener while she stays focus to keep the mental healing process in track.
Diahnn is an all-around amazing counselor! She helped me through so much and she's so patient and encouraging. I definitely recommend her.
Diahnn has been an absolutely amazing support and resource for me over the last year or so. I came to her with some relatively serious and long term issues and she took the time to really understand me, why I was experiencing the issues I had, and has been able to help me overcome those, teach me new strategies and coping mechanisms and change my perspective and thinking. I travel a lot for work and would not have been able to tackle my issues if I had to visit a therapist in an office. I will probably always be a work in progress but I am a much more stable and happy one thanks to Diahnn. Thank you!
She is amazing! She listens wholeheartedly and is genuinely interested in supporting me and my goals. I'm so thankful!
Diahnn is such a great listener with excellent insight.
Diahnn has helped me very much and I would like to thank her for being so patient, understanding, and helping me overcome many negative emotions and to make positive plans for my future. She is so encouraging and nurturing. I cannot thank her enough
She did an excellent job helping my daughter navigate a period of PTSD after a traumatic event. Highly recommend!
Diahann is an extremely capable counselor who takes the time to understand the issues at hand and develops a pragmatic approach to finding solutions. She is compassionate and empathetic, with a sunny disposition which makes her a joy to interact with. I would highly recommend Diahnn.
Talking to her is easy, comforting and feels safe.
She is an amazing human being. She will help you and- won’t judge you. I feel great because of her, and I wish everyone have someone like her to help them out.
Diahnn has been such a huge help to me. She is patient, insightful, kind and supportive. She made me look at things from a different perspective and made me feel like she was truly invested in my success. I feel very fortunate that I was able to work with her.
Friendly, approachable, understanding and realistic.
Diahnn is one of a kind. She is kind, caring, and very enthusiastic to help. Despite the distance, she is there to support and encourage. Not once has she missed an appointment or not replied to a text. If you need a shoulder to lean on, she’s your best bet.
She's a really great person and a great counselor, She helps me see some things in a different way and always encourage me to do better and to keep hope
