Message from Diane

Your child is acting out, throwing tantrums, and can’t seem to control their emotions. Or he seems checked out, withdrawn, and is shutting you out. You may be asking, “what’s wrong with him?” but the real question may be, “what happened to him?” 

Two thirds of children have experienced at least 1 traumatic event by the age of 16. Trauma, when left unchecked, can lead to nightmares or flashbacks, behavior changes, and negatively impact relationships with peers and family. It feels heavy and isolating. 

As a bilingual youth and family therapist, and I specialize in working with families and children. 

As a parent myself, I understand how difficult it is to care for our children, and how parents want to protect their children from harm. That’s why I create a safe space for your child to fully process their emotions and the trauma, and I guide them through that journey. 

So if you want your child or teen to be free from the hold trauma has on them, free from the nightmares, fear, and anxiety, and instead know how to successfully cope and ultimately feel whole again, schedule an appointment today. I would be honored to walk with you and your child toward lasting healing.

“Diane is such a wonderful listener, devoted to helping others, and I have learned so much from her. She is compassionate and caring, but also knows how and when to help. I highly recommend Diane for anyone looking for extra counseling support!” – Rachel L.
