About Me

"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!

She did an excellent job helping my daughter navigate a period of PTSD after a traumatic event. Highly recommend!

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 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.
