Diana Mendelson, MA, LMFT, Marriage & Family Therapist in Santa Rosa
Who stole the road sign to a happy life? If the path to growth and healing seems frustratingly hidden, I can help. When you come to see me you can expect to feel heard and understood, accepted as you are, and gently challenged to make the changes necessary to accomplish your goals. Many of my clients first call when they have tried everything to make things better, and nothing is working. Whether your goal is to strengthen your relationships, navigate a difficult life transition, or "unstick" yourself from depression, anxiety, or trauma, our work together will empower you to move forward and make smart choices.
I'd be happy to speak with you about how therapy can help for your particular situation. I bring warmth, honesty and 18 years of experience to our time together. I work with individuals, couples and families, and I want to help you find your way through whatever is overwhelming, frustrating or confusing you.
I have extensive somatic and attachment-based trauma training that is very helpful in treating anxiety, trauma and other issues. I offer many tools to support your healing and growth. Mentoring and supervising new therapists as they move through their training is also a joy of mine.
