Throughout her several years of practicing therapy, Diana specializes in couples, families and individuals struggling with communication, infidelity, anxiety, relationships, and co-parenting. Additionally, she helps clients understand patterns of behavior that permit negative outcomes such as codependency and enabling, which maintain the problem. She also works with families and partners who struggle and/or are caregivers to patients who suffers with chronic and progressive illness. Her goal is to create an environment where couples and families can express to each other what they need, while feeling heard and understood.
"The single biggest problem with communication is the thought that it has taken place" - unknown. Communication is key and in therapy it's the focus. Using patterns of behavior passed down through our families of origin, I help clients understand what areas of their life they need to adapt in order to create a relationship and life towards a desired future.
You may be having a hard time communicating with your partner or need help dealing with family issues or you're probably thinking, "This is the last shot at making our relationship work" - I get it. Perhaps what you are doing is no longer working, so stop and give yourself a chance to try something different. Coming to therapy is doing something different!
Yo me especializo trabajando con parejas, familias e individuos quienes tienen dificultades con: comunicación, infidelidad, ansiedad, relaciones, y la disciplina de hijos. También trabajo con familias que han sido afectadas por abuso de sustancias, alcohol, y desórdenes mentales. Sin darnos cuenta a veces nosotros somos parte del problema y no sabemos como salir de ese ciclo vicioso ya sea por nuestra codependencia o problemas de comunicación. También tengo experiencia trabajando con pacientes y familias que sufren con enfermedades crónicas y progresivas o en cuidado paleativo. Cuál sea el tema, usted necesita una solución.
Unos de los problemas más grandes con la comunicación es que personas no saben cómo o de que forma decir las cosas para que otros los escuchen y sean entendidos. Mi meta es crear un ambiente en donde usted pueda comunicar lo que necesita para que sea escuchado/a y entendido/a, con el fin de que usted, su relación y su vida tengan un mejor futuro.
En este momento, usted quizás siente que tiene problemas con su pareja, familia o con usted mismo, y está pensando “Éste es mi último intento” – yo entiendo. Lo que usted ha tratado de hacer en el pasado para solucionar el problema no está funcionado y quizás las cosas están peor.. así que pare y haga algo diferente. Venga a terapia y dése una oportunidad.
