Spiritual, Relationship, & Intimacy Counseling
When you find yourself in a place that feels “stuck” it is helpful to have a guide and a cheerleader. I am both of those…and more. I approach each session with practicality, intuition, and humor to meet you where you are and help you become the person you wish to be.
Couples counseling, pre-marriage counseling, and individual counseling sessions are collaborative endeavors which will create a safe space for you to find the courage to unpack your spiritual, sexual, and relationship baggage so you can gently and honestly examine the contents to know what is no longer needed for your life’s journey.
Often what we really need is space and love to deeply grieve and do the work of forgiving ourselves and others for disappointments, behaviors, and trauma that have led to us cutting off parts of ourselves to fit in a box made by someone else. I’m here to hold the thread while you reattach those parts and love them back into your embodied wholeness.
Counseling sessions, for individuals or couples, are based on the unique needs of each person and the goals you have. I don’t do formulas or one-size-fits-all templates. I offer sessions via Skype/Facetime, phone, and face-to-face. My fees range from $125 – $160 for individuals and couples. Pre-marital counseling packages start at $300. ** Discounts for multiple sessions always offered; limited sliding scale available for those in need.
For the past decade, my blend of Cognitive-Behavior Therapy, Somatic Experiencing, spiritual practice assessment and creation, homework assignments, guided imagery, and Jin Shin Jyutsu energy work has been an outgrowth of my own inner work. I won’t insist you go it alone. That’s why you came here. I will stand with you while you walk through your fire and reflect back to you the powerful, embodied, spiritual warrior you are.
Contact me for a free 15-minute consultation to discuss your concerns and discern whether we are a good fit.
We don’t often realize how disconnected we are from ourselves and our partners until we experience the painful results:
- Repeating patterns of conflict in relationships
- Sexual dysfunction
- Lack of joy in work and play / Feeling dead inside
- Running from relationship to relationship looking for someone else to fill all our needs
- Turning to addiction to mask our pain

What My Clients Are Saying
Working with DiAnna was a pleasure for two reasons– what she offered me, and what she didn’t offer me. DiAnna is consistently upbeat and encouraging. She will nudge you toward your true path– I didn’t say “push” on purpose– she is not pushy. But what I found most refreshing about working with her is that you can tell her anything and she will greet it with interest and excitement, not judgment. She enjoys what she does and wants you to enjoy what you do.
