Diana was born in Colombia, South America, where she did her bachelor’s degree in Psychology. She came to the United States in 2010 to pursue her licensure in Marriage and Family Therapy and Play Therapy.
Diana provides psychotherapy to individuals, couples and families. Her work includes addressing issues related to: depression, anxiety, abuse, trauma, violence, anger, acculturation, immigration, life transitions, family and couples conflict, parenting, and divorce. She utilizes therapeutic tools from different theories, always considering that all clients are human beings who deserve a unique approach to their struggles.
When working with children and adolescents, she uses play as a way for them to communicate and heal while in therapy. She also uses sand tray therapy with adolescents, adults and families as another form of expression through metaphors and symbols.
Diana has a special interest in working with young children and their parents, as well as in working with clients of all ages affected by trauma. Being bilingual in Spanish-English allows her to provide culturally competent therapy to Latino families. Having a deep understanding of the Latino culture grants clients a better overall experience.
