Diane is a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and has a master's degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Tarleton State University. Before going into private practice, she was a school counselor in Fort Worth where she learned and implemented trauma-based emotional interventions from Texas Christian University.

She believes that human connection and healthy relationships are very important to creating purpose in life. Her goal is to help people find their own value and manage emotions to foster a healthy self-image and happier relationships.
