About Diann Stuart, LAMFT

Diann Stuart, LAMFT is a therapist specializing in helping teens, adults, and families navigate their path through recovery.

MY APPROACH:

Sessions with me are designed to your needs, providing an opportunity to acquire the skills and life changes you are seeking. I want to help you find your voice thus achieving your goals. Some of the modalities I use include DBT, CBT, Solution Focused Therapy as well as Narrative Therapy. We will work together to find the right fit for your sessions.

My passion and desire is to walk alongside individuals and families as they uncover and find the long term solutions they need to calm their emotional storms and increase their coping skills to better handle their distress and to become their best self! I encourage self-empowerment and autonomy in a non-judgmental environment to promote hope, healing, and change that clients need to grow and flourish in their life. My approach stems from the idea that while each of us represents an individual puzzle piece, it takes the use of multiple puzzle pieces to complete a puzzle. We, as individuals, are just one piece of a bigger puzzle that breaks away from the puzzle during life transitions and stressors.

WHO ARE MY CLIENTS:

Life is hard enough and when you add depression, anxiety, suicidal ideation, grief, eating disorders, addiction or other life controlling issues to your daily life the day ahead often seems impossible. The key is finding your voice and learning how to use it to achieve your dreams, goals, hopes and desires so you can live your best life, the life you have always wanted. Discovering want it means to be real and authentic makes the process of staying stuck where you are more difficult.

My clients often present with concerns pertaining to:

  • The use of unhelpful coping skills
  • Difficulties in navigating relationships due to past hurts
  • Struggles with self-image
  • Sustaining recovery/preventing relapse
  • Intense and overwhelming emotions

Making the call or sending the 1st email to a therapist can be intimidating, but I hope you will take a moment (and a deep breath) to call and see how I can help. It may seem overwhelming, but it does not have to end that way. Let’s get you started TODAY to living the life you want. I’d be honored to be a part of your story as you find your voice!
