Welcome Diane Pascucci! Diane is a clinical nurse specialist with a focus in psychiatric health. She also has a masters degree in education.
When life feels overwhelming and unfair, it is easy to let the circumstances rob you of precious energy. Sometimes the circumstances may be changeable, sometimes they are not. What is important is the guidance, support and strategies needed to point you in the right direction. Using insight and knowledge of your own unique combination of genetics, interaction style, problem solving approaches, and inner strengths will provide that needed compass. Diane understands the importance of a good-fit and encourages clients to pay attention to how they feel about the interaction during their session. Do they feel as if they are being understood, are they feeling supported during the work of therapy? Working with a therapist and coach who is a good fit will provide the fuel needed to get going.
Diane has over twenty five years working with individuals who have anxiety and depression, learning disabilities, ADHD, PTSD, and chronic illness, as well grieving the pain of significant losses. She has worked in hospitals, clinics, private practice and in school systems including high school and universities, supporting students with LD and ADHD.
Diane appreciates the big picture – looking at life from her clients’ perspective and watching their progress and transformation. Clients may not always arrive with a clear idea of what they need – only knowing that something needs to change. The desire for change, receptivity to support, and ability for introspection fosters the partnership of working together. Sometimes all that is needed for an individual to improve their quality of life is the empathy and compassion of a seasoned professional.
