With mindfulness, somatic therapies, and DBT, I will help you stop self-sabotaging, get comfortable with the experience of your emotions, and guide you in tuning into your wants, your needs, your limits, and your values.
I help women and college students who identify as emotionally sensitive. You may struggle with perfectionism, anxiety, depression, losing yourself in others, setting boundaries, or trauma. This heightened compassion is your super power! It is the source of your creativity, your passion, and your intuition! But in our culture, it can often be met with criticism leading us to feel as though we don’t belong. We learn to push away our emotions to gain acceptance only to feel more isolated. My clients want to step out of conditioning based in shame, patriarchy, and trauma and learn to trust their gifts, emotions, and intuition!

I'm trained in Somatic Experiencing, a body-based, organic approach to trauma healing.
My approach comes from an underlying trust that when we slow down and listen to the body, heart, and mind, we will find what we need to take that next step toward greater freedom in our relationships and our lives. My intention is to create a space where you can befriend yourself and your life, and in so doing, open up new avenues of healing, creativity and energy.

Our minds condition the quality of every moment of our lives—therapy is uniquely suited to positively engaging with our minds. And of course, our minds are not just our minds; they are our bodies, our relationships, our cultures, our society, our work, our past, our future, our imagination, as well as our thoughts and feelings. Therapy can interface with all of these parts of us, and help us to integrate them, nourishing our life.

Techniques that I utilize include Brainspotting, mindfulness, meditation, somatic exercises, as well as creative outlets such as literature, art, writing, podcasts, music and more.
Michael Scott from The Office once said "Society teaches us that having feelings and crying is bad and wrong. Well, that's baloney, because grief isn't wrong. There's such a thing as good grief. Just ask Charlie Brown." As a therapist, I would agree with Michael and add that all feelings are right and good and meaningful but sometimes we can get stuck in negative thought patterns, relationship conflicts, painful feelings or avoidance strategies. We sometimes need help to create and develop new tools for handling those difficult thoughts or situations.

I pay particular attention to the connection between mind and body and incorporate EMDR and somatic therapies into my work.
I specialize in working with individuals who have been impacted by traumatic and/or distressing life experiences and circumstances. Attachment wounds as well as single incident traumas are ruptures that result in a sense of disconnection from ourselves, others, and the world. This is an adaptive reaction to abnormal events. In time, you may realize that living life in ‘survival’ mode is no longer serving you. You may feel disengaged from those around you, numb or empty, or feel ‘too’ sensitive, emotional, or reactionary. Connecting with others may feel overwhelming. You are deserving and capable of growth, connection, and healing.

I help my clients explore and recover their true self in a compassion-focused and integrative way through somatic and cognitive behavioral interventions.
Sometimes realizing that you need help can be just as difficult as asking for help in difficult situations. The truth is we all need help at one point in time or another and it’s totally normal. In fact, you deserve to be living your best life right now and I would like to help you get there. My therapeutic approach to working with people is holistic and systemic meaning that I take your whole self, Mind-Body-Spirit into consideration when developing a treatment plan that is right for you. Diana also identifies as Neurodivergent, and is passionate about breaking down stereotypes and myths about Autism, ADHD, Personality Disorders.

Every individual has an incredible well of innate potential and power to heal, self-actualize, and achieve their most authentic and incredible life. My role is to collaborate with others to catalyze that potential, to accelerate healing. Persons seeking counseling are individuals not content with status quo or complacency. They want to be their best selves and to expand their lives to make them as fulfilling and incredible.

My approach uses attachment-based & somatic experiences, including mindfulness and understanding the neuroscience behind anxiety, fear & anger.
Are you looking for something different when it comes to therapy? I believe therapy can be more relaxed & not always serious & "stuffy". My goal is for you to have an experience of comfort and encouragement while also working through difficult situations and feelings. We talk about your concerns but also about your strengths & looking at things from different perspectives. During these conversations, we can laugh about some things, have a cup of coffee/tea together and color a picture. I work hard to provide a positive, accepting and non-judgmental environment where you feel safe to talk about your reality and truth.

I tend to be relaxed and calm, and am good at helping others to find a sense of calmness in their own lives. I understand that you are a person, not a set of symptoms. Because of this I will work hard to minimize the anxiety that you may have about coming to therapy. My aim is to build a collaborative, supportive relationship that will support you along your journey. I think of this work as sacred. I often find myself in awe that I get to walk with people so closely as they journey through life.

Clients often come to see me when they feel lost, stuck, or overwhelmed. I strive to help clients identify and explore the foundation of a challenge or issue so that they can effectively (and often quickly) achieve deep and lasting change. My work is rooted in my belief that our bodies and minds are designed to heal, and we can get stuck when those innate processes are interrupted or ignored. I use an integrative approach to help strengthen the client's inherent wisdom and ability to heal, with an emphasis on self-awareness, skill-building, and the mind-body connection.

What type of Madison mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Madison?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
