Diane believes that therapy happens best in a special setting that supports a deeper intention to heal and live with authenticity.

Diane often finds that 60-minutes-per-week standard formula for therapy is not appropriate or sufficient to dig deep in order to get to core barriers. Sometimes we need to keep digging in a sustained way for a chunk of time. Personal growth is not an event but a process, and healing sometimes best happens through a process, like taking a journey. For these reasons Diane offers personalized extended individual and group sessions, workshops and intensive weekends.

Experiential Therapy

Experiential Therapy

Experiential therapy is a form of creative arts where expressive tools or activities are used to re-enact and recreate situations. Under the guidance of a highly skilled therapist, techniques use: journal, music, guided imagery, props, puppets, art and role playing. By re-experiencing feelings stemming from hurts, (often trauma) we safely unblock stuck feelings. Focusing on releasing emotions, mostly anger, fear, and sadness; but it’s not all about the pain because you will experience fun, laughter and amazing connections too. An internal shift happens affecting the body, mind and spirit. It is recommended for those that want freedom from the past and to live up to your present day full potential. Experiential therapy aims to treat emotions and compulsions. Learn more about experiential therapy from Psychology Today.
