Healthy Relationships Are Key to Maintaining Optimal Mental Health

Dr. Diane, a licensed clinical psychologist is taking over our Instagram on January 25, 2018 to discuss all things love! Head over to the Gram to ask her all of your relationship/dating questions!

Dr. Diane works with both individual and couples and as a Love Expert, she practices in the Northern California Bay area.

If you want to find out who you are in your relationships, take Dr. Diane’s popular Love Style Quiz. In 10 questions you will find out which one of 7 different Love Styles you have. She also has a partner quiz where you can figure out who your partner is and specifically what they need and want for a successful relationship with them.

Her quiz is based upon the Attachment Theory, a psychological theory that helps explain how you became who you are and how you love.

Dr. Diane has been licensed for the past 20 years. Her primary mode of treatment is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy where she trained at Stanford for her post doctorate. She has extensive experience working with clients who have depression, anxiety, bipolar, OCD, eating disorders and chronic pain. Dr. Diane believes in giving back and volunteers for @vallemonteleague – an organization which supports local mental health charities in her area.

In addition, she more recently became a relationship expert after realizing that one of the most important aspects of a person’s life and their mood is their relationships. Now, her life’s work is to help people understand what a healthy relationship is. It doesn’t matter where someone starts or what their love style is, two people can create a secure relationship when they have good communication skills.

The main purpose of her practice and her page is to educate people, inspire them to find love or to deepen their love and also to be able to laugh a bit. Sometimes laughter is the best medicine when it comes to love.

Dr. Diane practices what she preaches in relationships by working on her marriage and loves to travel with her husband and two step sons.
