    Additional Information

    Diane practices cognitive behavioral therapy with patients who suffer from anxiety, panic, obsessive compulsive disorder, grief and depression. The premise of cognitive behavioral therapy is that when patients learn to correct their irrational negative thoughts, more positive feelings emerge, and new pathways are developed in the brain.

    Diane also has experience providing eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) which is an evidence-based practice for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). 

    Cognitive therapy is also effective with trauma patients. Through visualization and meditation techniques, patients learn to soothe themselves and stay in the present instead of the past.

    Diane has a passion for helping people and wanted to be a counselor since 6th grade.  She loves big dogs and is a volunteer at the Rabun County Animal Shelter, Paws 4 Life.  Outside of work, she stays active and enjoys gardening, pilates, hiking, playing tennis and lifting weights.
