I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor with over 30 years experience.
I believe that everyone deserves to live a life of content and self acceptance. To that end, therapy can be very helpful in removing roadblocks and resolving issues that keep us from moving ahead in our lives. I have experience with addressing addictions, depression, Bi-polar Disorder, anger, self esteem, anxiety, grief and loss, family and relationship issues.
I have worked with many couples and partners and find that communication and compromise are often part of the issue. Learning to listen to each other, listening to someone who is angry, in a non defensive way, recognizing that each person is an individual as well as a couple and knowing when and how to take a time out are all skills that can be learned and enhance a relationship.
- Relationship issues
- Trauma and abuse
I also have experience in Stress, Anxiety, LGBT, Family conflicts, Grief, Intimacy-related issues, Eating disorders, Sleeping disorders, Parenting issues, Anger management, Self esteem, Career difficulties, Bipolar disorder

Diane has been an unbelievable person in our lives. She has been very helpful, understanding and most importantly very direct in trying to provide results in my relationship. I feel like she is part of our family and always someone that we can depend on.
My husband and I have found that Diane is very direct but also very understanding. She doesn’t take sides, but simply works with you on the issues, without judgement to either side. We are very impressed with her expertise and both feel very comfortable with her. She makes a tough situation easier by being professional and straight forward. She offers tools to grow and get better and overcome obstacles in our marriage. We would both highly recommend her.
Diane Poehkman is a true professional that help one to heal and progress with their life..She is Amazing!!
Diane is extremely patient and knows how to create a safe environment to talk about any issues or concerns. Like how neutral she is in any situation and is able to ask diving questions to get to the bottom of the conversation. Would highly recommend her.
