It is so important that you find the right personality fit and skill-level when looking for a therapist or coach. So here is a little information about me, Diana Conwell.
I have been a Therapist and Coach for over 15 years, but I like to say I have been "training" for this work my whole life. To me, my life experiences both personally and professionally, are as valuable as are the degrees and formal training that I have received over many years. I believe you can't just learn "life" in school....you have to live it! My job is to help clients find a way through challenges in their marriage or relationship, families, career, or life, recover from disappointments or losses, take charge with new information and strategies, and discover the power of a more full and abundant life.
As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT), I specialize in therapy for individuals, couples, and teenagers.
I am additionally trained and experienced as a Career Counselor and as a Personal Life Coach. My private practice is located in Roseville, CA where I work with a broad spectrum of clients.
- Marriage or Relationship Counseling
- Pre-Marital Counseling
- Relationship Enhancement
- Relationship Recovery/Dating
- Divorce decision, recovery, or separation
- Individual Counseling
- Career Counseling/Coaching
- Job Loss
- Grief and Loss
- Women and Men
- Life Coaching
- Parenting Challenges
- Senior Citizens
- Christian and Religious Counseling
- Healthy Life Balance and Self Care
- Self-Esteem, Personal Image
- Anxiety and Performance
Clients have described me as having a compassionate, non-threatening, no-nonsense style that is "real" and appeals to men and women. I specialize in offering hope and real life strategies that help enrich and repair marriage/couple relationships. While I provide service to a wide variety of clients, I have a particular heart for working with individuals who are in some form of life transition such as widowhood, divorce, relationship recovery, career issues, or health crisis.
As a Career Counselor and Coach, I provide guidance and action-oriented plans for all levels of career development or job search. For many clients, I find that Life Coaching "is in there somewhere" for those who appreciate the practical application it can provide in helping them to identify and achieve their goals from a "non-therapy" perspective.
In my personal life, I'm an outdoor girl all the way! I appreciate nature through activities such as kayaking, hiking and snowshoeing. I love cooking, yoga, travel and discovering new adventures. I am very happily re-married after an 8 year period as a widow following 27 years of marriage. I am a mother and an enthusiastic grandmother of 4!
