She has been with Limberg & Associates since 2003. Past experience includes counseling and crisis work with domestic violence and sexual assault clients, work with clients with severe, chronic mental illness, and an AODA inpatient treatment facility. Art Psychotherapy is based on knowledge of human development and psychological theories for assessment and treatment. The creative product is a symbolic guide to an individual’s inner world. It allows distance from the original conflict and feelings that may be difficult to express verbally. Creative modalities reveal unconscious material and unresolved trauma and grief. The creative process is cathartic, clears emotional blockages and facilitates developmental transition and integration while bypassing normal intellectual defenses. In working with clients of all ages and a wide range of presenting problems, Diane chooses the best approach that meets the needs of the individual.
