Independently Contracted Therapist / Counselors' Profiles

Therapist Diane M. McKnight

Diane M. McKnight, MA, MSW, LMSW, LCSW, ATR

I am happy to provide therapeutic services in a non judgmental, open and safe environment where you can feel safe to express and understand your issues and emotions. I can help in many areas including trauma/Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), grief and loss, depression, anxiety, relationship issues, major life transitions (such as job loss, aging, divorce, major medical/physical changes), spirituality, LGBTQ issues, self esteem and many others.

I provide traditional talk therapy and can also provide non-traditional therapies such as art therapy and sandplay therapy for individuals, families, couples, children and groups. Non-traditional therapies may provide opportunities for my clients to explore thoughts and feelings in ways that are sometimes less threatening then a direct discussion and can also be helpful in communicating thoughts and emotions that are difficult to describe with words. I also incorporate cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness techniques, journaling/creative writing and other eclectic therapeutic approaches and techniques as needed. There are no “cookie cutter” therapeutic approaches that work for everyone. I always tailor my therapeutic plan of care to individual needs, preferences and comfort levels.

You are the expert of your own life experiences and you will be the one that truly directs your path to recovery. I will be pleased to partner with you on this journey. I will use my education, therapeutic experience, along with my professional and personal insights gained from my own struggles in my life to help guide you in resolving issues, reducing symptoms and achieving your personal goals. I will help empower you to work through difficult times.

Learning about ourselves allows us to get in touch with our inner feelings that ultimately leads us to an enhanced understanding of what will allow us to be happier in our lives. I look forward to a therapeutic partnership where I can assist you in centering and holistically positioning yourself comfortably in your personal and professional areas.

Have you ever thought: “My life has purpose and I’m not going to take this anymore”.

If you find yourself making this statement because of sadness, overwhelm or daily worries that keep you up at night, I can help. Who of us does not wish to feel at ease and able to express ourselves, no matter what situation we are facing? The counseling process is an invitation for you to grow and remember who you are. I am here to help you resolve issues, develop and achieve purposeful goals that will produce positive results in your life.

I provide a welcoming, friendly environment for you to discuss your life challenges and difficult experiences freely and safely without the feeling of being judged. It is my pleasure to assist you in resolving issues that are presented through depression, anxiety, adjustment difficulties, behavioral concerns, relationship conflict, family concerns, etc. I will be devoted in helping you and/or your child(ren) in finding a sense of stability and gaining perseverance.

Feeling trapped, stressed and overwrought? Know that it is possible to feel better!

Living the daily grind can be more challenging when negative feelings, stress, or the symptoms of an emotional condition weigh you down or affect your functioning. When life becomes unduly tough or moving forward too dreary, reach out – I am here to help. I am happy to help you and your loved ones - your spouse/partner, a young or adolescent child, or an elderly parent - improve the quality of your lives.
