Diana (she/her) TLLP
I offer a compassionate, calming presence to accompany you along your journey. My practice is rooted in the belief that healing happens in loving relationship—with oneself, with others, and with the natural world. My approach draws on and integrates relational, feminist, humanistic, eco-therapeutic, cognitive-behavioral, and strength-based modalities. These are all informed by my own identities and ongoing healing journey, formal and informal education, and experiences with students and clients. We will co-create a therapy that is right for you in this given moment. You are the expert of your own life, and I am here with you, witnessing, validating, and supporting.
I welcome people of all backgrounds, lived experiences, and intersecting identities. I am committed to providing a safe and affirming space for BIPOC clients, clients who identify as LGBTQIA+, and clients in consensual non-monogamous and polyamorous relationships. I use body liberation and Health at Every Size approaches when exploring relationships with food and body. I create intentional space within therapy to deconstruct the oppressive systems that are so often the causes of our distress. I use a trauma-informed lens and have a special interest in working with immigrant, 1.5, and 2nd-generation populations, particularly from Middle Eastern North African and Arab communities.
I have been privileged to have experience working in nature connection and ecological stewardship with children and in restorative justice with adolescents. I often integrate skills learned in these spaces within my therapeutic practice. I am currently pursuing a doctorate at the Michigan School of Psychology (MSP) and interning at the MSP Clinic.
In my free time, I love to be in nature, dance and watch anime with my partner, and take long, restorative naps. I am working on deepening my relationship to pleasure and rest and supporting others in this process.
