Hi, I'm Diana!
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker practicing psychotherapy in Austin, TX. I graduated from The University of Texas at Austin with a Masters in Social Work in 2018 and have experience working with teens, families, and adults in inpatient and outpatient mental health settings as well as schools, summer camps, and community programs.
I am passionate about helping individuals navigate a variety of life stressors and mental health issues including depression, anxiety, Autism/ADHD matters, suicidality, self-harm, relationship issues, and school/work stress.
My style is warm and compassionate, as I believe everyone is doing the best they can with what they have. I want to help you find the right tools to support your needs and goals.

How I Help
In our work together, my goal is for you to feel supported and empowered in your healing journey. I will guide you to recognize and use your strengths to make the most of your life and circumstances.
I use a trauma-informed perspective that enables us to reach a level of safety in which you can process, experience emotions, and advocate for your needs. I believe deeply in the healing power of a secure therapeutic relationship between you and your therapist.
I work from a cognitive lens, supporting your awareness, learning, and understanding of your mental health and coping skills. Healing is a process that is unique for everyone, and I strive to join and accept you wherever you are in that process.
More About Me
In my free time, you can find me spending time with family and friends, enjoying a comedy special or podcast, or loving on my little dog, June. I appreciate art and design and love to slow down and notice the beauty we can make around us. I am always down for a jigsaw puzzle, crossword, or su doku and I love incorporating games and play into session.
