Hello and welcome! My name is Diane Gutierrez and I wanted to share with you a little bit about myself. I have a passion for therapy work. In my time off I enjoy watching movies, going for road trips, reading books, trying out new restaurants, and drinking a delicious cup of coffee while engaging in a wonderful conversation.

Do you find yourself yearning for better relationships with your spouse, friends or family members? Do you worry about your job or your life overall and does this keep you up at night? I want to tell you that therapy is a wonderful and safe place to figure out and discover new ways to approach and relate to old problems, and let go of what hasn’t worked for you. My goal is to help you live more meaningfully and joyfully. I will start by asking you what you want from therapy and our time together.

I will listen to you in a non-judgemental way. In our work together you will discover new ways to think about old problems and you will begin to become aware of your negative automatic thoughts and you will begin to replace them with more compassionate, helpful, positive thoughts.
