Diane R. Morris
MS, CADC, LPC, CETII
As a skilled experiential therapist, I do more than your typical therapy. I take you on a journey of personal growth, uncovering core barriers that keep you stuck. Gently and safely I will move you out of the darkness and help you see the light of compassion, while the spirit of the 12 Steps will be the guide. I will help you inventory assets and liabilities in unseeable areas because what we do not see has power over us. My creative approach will help you live more consciously.
Personally, I have gained many skills through my own healing journey, work the 12 Steps and 10 years of psychodrama. Professionally, I have accumulated nearly 1,000 training hours from a variety of trainers including Tian Dayton, Hudson Valley Psychodrama Institute and Advanced Psychodrama Bodywork. I earned my master’s degree locally where I am currently an adjunct professor, teaching addictions. I have been certified in drug and alcohol addiction for over 25 years, licensed professional counselor and certified in experiential therapy. I am also currently writing a book about experiencing an absent, judgmental, abusive or distant mother.
An ideal fit for me is someone who is a courageous warrior who truly wants to take action for lasting inner peace and healing; someone who has been sober (any addiction) for a few years, needs more help; someone who wants to make an investment in themselves; and who wants to heal the 3 dimensions of self: body, mind and spirit. If some or all of this sounds like you, give me a call, we’ll travel together.
I am committed to helping individuals heal, feel empowered, and develop overall wellness to live a fulfilling life. I am passionate about guiding individuals, especially children, adolescents, young adults, and couples using different approaches specific to each person. I focus on processing past wounds, developing healthy coping skills, journey through grief, improving self-esteem, and much more. My approach includes CBT, Client-Centered, Solution-Focused, and a Narrative approach. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor.

We understand that there are times when you must miss an appointment due to emergencies or obligations for work or family. However, when you do not call to cancel an appointment, you may be preventing another person from getting much needed help. On the other hand, the situation may arise where another person fails to cancel and we are unable to schedule you for a visit, due to a seemingly “full” appointment book.
If an appointment is not cancelled at least 24 hours in advance you will be charged a forty dollar ($40) fee, this will not be covered by your insurance.
“Without self-awareness, the habit of finding fault is a distraction that keeps me from seeing my own mistakes. As long as I look at another’s wrongheadedness, I don’t see myself – the only person I can.”
