Licensed Clinical Social Worker
Diana obtained both her bachelor’s and master’s degree in social work at the University of Anchorage. She has been providing mental health services since 1997. In 2012, Diana shifted the focus of her work to patients with severe, potentially life limiting illnesses and palliative care needs. She earned a post- MSW certificate in palliative care from the California State University Institute for Palliative Care in 2017.
Diana provides counseling and therapeutic support to patients with life altering illnesses and their family members, utilizing a variety of interventions and practice models such as medical crisis counseling, structured life review, mindfulness-based approaches, cognitive behavioral therapy and guided imagery. Most recently, Diana has been trained in meaning-centered psychotherapy for cancer patients at Memorial Sloan Kettering in New York City.
AKWCC is pleased to announce the addition of Diana’s counseling services one day a week at pre-arranged office appointment times.
In her off time, Diana enjoys spending time with her family and four legged companions. She travels whenever possible and enjoys new life experiences.
