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 is extremely knowledgable and unbiased. She has helped my husband and I communicate more openly. She continues to work with us to recognize our own faults and what we can work on both individually and as a couple. We realize that it's day by day sometimes and that marriage is not easy, but she is helping us fight for it and see the love that we have for one another. She really feels like a part of our family and we appreciate the passion and heart she puts into her work.
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.
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.
