Diana found her calling to become a psychotherapist out of a desire to serve God by helping His people live healthier, more fulfilling, and more joyful lives. She loves working with those who are ready and willing to do what it takes to make changes happen. She works with individuals, couples, children, adolescents and families in her clinical practice. She helps her clients find resolution to the impact of abuse and trauma, as well as problems of depression, anxiety, anger, grief, couples’ discord, family conflicts, behavioral issues, low self-esteem, and life transitions. Diana also assists her clients who feel lost about their life directions with career exploration and identity development. Diana uses an integrative approach to treatment, employing a variety of methods and techniques as appropriate to each client’s unique needs. Among these is Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), which has been shown to be an effective way to resolve the impact of past trauma and adverse life experiences, enabling people to respond to their current life situations in more functional ways. Diana is a Certified Therapist in EMDR. She is also skilled in treating Dissociative Disorders, which often result from trauma that people experience, especially early in life. As a devoted Christian, Diana also loves to integrate Christian spirituality with psychological well-being in working with clients for whom this is relevant.
Before becoming a therapist, Diana spent the first decade of her career in the business world. She earned an MBA from Stanford, and worked in management consulting with McKinsey & Company, in private equity, and in high tech product management. She is fluent in Cantonese.
