Welcome! My name is Diane and I am a licensed professional counselor in South Carolina with 7 years of experience. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, however I have had the privilege of working with at risk teens, ages 12-19. The teen years are a age of discovery, and at the same time an age of much uncertainty. This is a time of reflection and much support, while allowing the growth process is needed and is often difficult.
My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, psychodynamic and rational-emotive counseling. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs. If you are looking for a "quick fix", I am not the therapist you want or need! The road to wellness takes rime and consistency.
It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change.
If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you!

She is very inspiring and straightforward. And doesn’t let your chin drop. Thankful for her!
I like her because she is real, straight to the point. Also shares things that relate to my situation. She is patient and understanding. Most of all she is there when you need her.
Diane is awesome! She is straight to the point, no beating around the bush, tells you the hard truth even if you don’t want to hear it. Which was really good for me! I was having some issues with my stubborn teenage daughter and Diane saw right through the bs. She provided me great tools to help, not only with parenting, but also tools to help me take care of ME so that I could care for my family. She’s also a believer and that really helped me with some spiritual battles I was dealing with.
Diane understands how teenagers work and really helped me understand my daughter. Thanks to Diane, I feel more confident as a parent of a teenage daughter, which is a total blessing because my younger daughter will be a teenager in a couple years :)
The first time I spoke with Diane I felt comfortable and heard. Would recommend her to anyone.
My husband and I worked with Diane for about 5 months. We found her approach refreshing, after having previously worked with two other couples' councilors. Diane is great at straight talk. She was able to clearly identify our issues, and provide direct instruction on how to improve our situation. Diane doesn't sugar coat her ideas - for us it was absolutely perfect! We needed to be firmly and compassionately guided into healthier behaviours. Diane sends weekly inspirational messages. After working with Diane, we are in a significantly better place. We communicate well, and take responsibility for ourselves. I highly recommend Diane for anyone who's genuinely willing to put in the work to make their relationship better and truly ready to take a good hard look at themselves.
Diane was a great match for me. She’s straight forward - tells it like it is and wants to talk about what’s going on in the present. Exactly what I wanted. Thank you!
Ms. Diane is a great therapist highly recommend as a therapist, she has helped me with dealing with my mental issues.
I have been working with Diane for two weeks, and I already feel better.
She gave me tricks to manage my anxiety, and it definitely helped.
We have only had 1 session with Diana and we've already seen our relationship changing slowly, she is great, doesn't take sides, listens to both parties and helps us find solutions. I would definitely recommend her to other people. Thank you Diana
Diane is wonderful. I would recommend her to everyone.
Diane is very engaged with the conversation. I always walk away from our sessions with “homework” that helps achieve a better me.
Amazing and was a life saver !!!
She is very kind. A positive soul, a good addition to anyone’s journey.
She's the best. she makes me feel complete.
Absolutely wonderful. A key part of my overall life support
