Dian’s journey to the mental health care field is personal: after struggling with intermittent depression in her own life, she sought the help of therapists and medication. “I was so appreciative of what my therapists gave me - their caring, understanding, coping tools, etc., that I wanted to do this work as well, and pass along to others what I had been given.” Now, she works to support people experiencing anxiety and depression as well as issues around self-esteem, shame, insecurity, and partner issues.
With experience serving people of diverse backgrounds at multiple behavioral health agencies, Dian continually feels honored when clients share their innermost thoughts and fears seek support. She’s motivated by the belief that humans have the ability to change, grow, and live with purpose, and she takes an integrative approach with each client to help them realize their potential.
Dian wants people to know that there’s no shame in getting help with mental health, and reaching out for help is a sign of strength. “Usually, it’s one of the best decisions we can make to make our relationship, ourselves, our lives better.”
In her free time, Dian enjoys reading, quiet dinners with friends, and playing with her cat.
