Client Testimonials

“Diane has been a professional role model for me for years. She is compassionate, caring, supportive and so committed to teaching. Diane is beautiful both inside and outside. I personally gain from her patience. Because of Diane’s big heart, sometimes I wonder if she works too hard. (Just a thought). I am deeply grateful to Diane and all her staff for all the work and thoughtful treats included in this training. Thank you for all your hard work!” – L.S., Arroyo Grande, CA

“This training helped me frame therapeutic work within an individual but all the way into large systems-the organization. “All the world over we are affected by our abilities and disabilities to connect. This work is how to heal and reform corrections at whatever level, within ourselves, families, and work places, so we can be our best, solo or together.” – Ann Weatherley, Boulder,CO

“Diane’s knowledge is deep and her breadth of understanding of the human condition is exquisite!” – Therapist, New York

“The material was so well presented – very clear, well organized. The addition of the manual is really great and helpful and I will continue to refer to it. The attachment module was relevant to clinical practice and Diane is particularly good at providing links between the didactic and clinical application.” – Anonymous
