I’ve dedicated 13 years of my career to serving children and families who are going through an acute crisis. I have a thriving interest in continuing to help others navigate through those unexpected challenges.
Helping an individual find the tools to assist in their healing has always been a passion of mine.
For the past 12 years I’ve worked with pediatric patients in a healthcare system who have been inflicted with trauma; including sexual abuse, physical abuse, neglect, and being involved in a traumatic accident causing injury to their bodies. As well as, providing crisis counseling to those faced with the death of their child.
For the past 7 years, I’ve worked with birth mothers and prospective adoptive parents going through the adoption process.
Providing support, comfort, and counseling for the stressors that go along with the adoption process. I’ve also devoted 7 years of work to children of divorced parents.
Behavioral and mental health needs are challenges that everyone faces in some aspect of their life. Providing the necessary tools, empowering, and finding strengths along the way to help aid with hope and healing is my goal.

Latoya, LPCC, LMHC
I believe that each of us have been created to live life on purpose, with purpose, and with meaning. Wellness means giving attention to ourselves physically, spiritually, mentally, and emotionally. During the most difficult times in our lives, we can find deficits in our wellness – in any of the above areas. When we are impaired, our functioning is also impaired. As a counselor, my mission is to work with adults, couples, families, and children during the most difficult times in their lives. I am dedicated to empowering you and your loved ones to find “wholeness.”
My goal is for my clients to live the life they want to live, and I want to empower you to create lasting, positive change within your life. My therapeutic process helps clients understand how to use your own agency to move toward whole-hearted living. Together, we will create strategies for coping and relating to others so you can thrive.
I understand the therapeutic process can seem overwhelming, so I am committed to meeting my clients where they are and building a foundation of genuine trust and respect. Wherever you are in your journey, I want to partner with you to take you to the next level.
Diane M. MSSA, LSW, Therapist
My name is Diane and I’m a Licensed Social Worker with a Master’s Degree from Case Western Reserve. I have 23 years of experience working with populations across the board, from children to adults, families to seniors. I have worked with people of all walks of life and different cultures, as well as a variety of social backgrounds and abilities.
My expertise lies in helping people with anxiety, depression, and chronic life stressors, as well as grief and bereavement. I have a skill set based on client-centered Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Motivational Interviewing, and establishing coping strategies for mental, physical and emotional health.
Beyond the resume, I am a full-time working wife and mother of two very active and involved kids — and a goofy English Bulldog. I understand the pushes and pulls of being everything to everyone, then realizing we are not making ourselves a priority. I believe in self-care to fill our cups and setting the hustle and bustle aside to give ourselves some grace to be our best selves, even when it feels there is not enough time and energy in the day…or week…or month.
My favorite part of therapy is motivational interviewing and rapport building, getting to know someone through their own eyes, rather than how the world, their employer, or even their family may see them. Sometimes speaking to a therapist is the first time a person is able to see or express themselves in an individual way and dedicate some well-deserved time to their own well being. My intention is to make any and every person comfortable in a trusting professional environment where they can put the work in to improve themselves in mind and soul. Providing tools for others to help themselves has been a fulfilling career for me and it feeds my soul. My goal is to help others find and achieve THEIR goals. To walk a path with them that may be daunting but doesn’t have to be navigated alone. I strive to help people find empowerment within themselves and live their fullest life, whatever that may look like for them

My bachelor's and master's degrees are in Social Work with a concentration in Children and Families. I relocated from Texas and live in Washington for the past 7 years.
Utilizing 15+ years in social work in more settings than I can count, I want to share my knowledge I have learned in supporting individuals who may be struggling or coping with anxiety, depression, emotional dysregulation, grief, and relationship issues. It’s my core belief that our mental, emotional, and physical well-being rely on our connection with others. It’s because of this belief, that I approach each person with sincerity and authenticity. You will find me to be inviting, friendly and engaging. My style is collaborative. I enjoy helping people find their measure of joy and peace. I especially find gratification in comforting those grieving a loss; this can be a death, a separation or divorce, or even a major life change. Everyone goes through life transitions and I believe that we do not have to go through them alone. Some life transitions change you, but you can decide how it changes you. No one is immune to adversity and trials but we can learn and practice more adaptive coping strategies and ways of processing thoughts and emotions that better serve us. I utilize a myriad of therapeutic approaches that best meet the needs of individuals. This includes solution-focused therapy and cognitive Behavioral therapy. Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and Acceptance Commitment Therapy.
