Prior to being hired in 2006, Diana worked as an intern at Sea Mars Everett behavioral health department, and later volunteered at Sea Mar in Seattle. She previously worked with homeless teenagers at the Cocoon House in Everett, and was a bereavement counselor for Becks Funeral Home for ten years.

 

Diana has been trained in narrative therapy and uses the approach in counseling and in her community work. Narrative therapy centers people as the experts in their own lives and views problems as separate from people.

 

Diana values narrative therapy because it recognizes that people have many skills competencies, beliefs, values, and commitments, all of which can help individuals reduce the influence of problems in their lives. Narrative therapy provides ways of understanding the lives and stories of people, and it enables the person seeking help to re-author the stories in collaboration with the therapist.

 

Dianas hobbies include backpacking, hiking, photography, rock hounding, wildlife viewing, animal tracking, watching the sunrise and sunset, bike communing, gardening and baking, and enjoying the simple things in life.
