Diana has worked with worked with children and adolescents in a school setting, adults in a public mental health setting and a private practice.
I have been a Licensed Clinical Social Worker since 1997 with a wide range of experience. I have worked with adults in a public mental health setting, children and adolescents in a school setting and private practice in the past. I have loved every experience that I have had and feel I’ve especially honed my skills when working with children. My goal in my career and life has always been to help others and as life presents its challenges, I believe my role is more important than ever.
My office is located in Lakewood with easy access from Denver, Arvada, Golden and Littleton. I recently finished a 16 year long career in the school system where I provided extensive mental health support to youth. I am able to give support regarding navigation of the educational system and I’m also happy to connect with school’s to ensure good continuity for your child. I utilize play to build relationships with children, gain their trust and promote positive change within the individual and family.
I have worked with adults around issues of coping with anxiety, mood disturbances, depression, past trauma and women’s issues. I like to take a cognitive behavioral approach and I’m always reading in order to learn as much as I can to refine my skills and knowledge base. I am scheduled to become EMDR certified in May 2023.
I believe that building a strong and trusting relationship is most important to the therapeutic process when working with children and adults as well as being compassionate and empathetic. I’m looking forward to working with you, your child and/or your family.
