Dr. Stella Diai

LPC

About Me

Welcome! I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the State of New Jersey. I have a doctorate degree in Psychology and Behavioral Health, with a specialization in Education and Counseling Psychology. The primary focus of my practice is to help my clients to reach their potentials. I have been privileged to work in the helping profession for the past fifteen years.
I believe that the entire process begins by identifying those stumbling blocks in the lives of the individuals that prevented them from achieving their desired goals. I maintain a high level of openness with my clients having realized over the year that what matters most in therapy is the client /therapist relationship. I truly believe that it is the relationship that heals.
My practice incorporates the client-centered, non-directive approach, the cognitive behavior approach and the eclectic approach. This is important to me because every individual is unique and should be treated as an individual by entering into each clients own world. The use of compassion, empathy and unconditional positive regard are the core elements of treatment in my practice.
I specialize in psychotherapy with individuals of all ages with various mental health diagnoses and behavioral issues. I have extensive experience working with families and children and I also have a great interest in community development. Additionally, I run Anger management courses, Parenting courses and Coping skills courses for interested individuals and also for those who are mandated by the legal system to do so. I look forward to working with you.

In working with the couples, we will begin by identifying those stumbling blocks in the lives of the individuals that prevented them from achieving their desired goals in a non judgmental manner. I maintain a high level of openness with my clients having realized over the year that what matters most in therapy is the client /therapist relationship. I truly believe that it is the relationship that heals.

Dr Diai is insightful, professional and very compassionate. She is capable of turning arguments and conflicts around and bring light to the conversation, always respecting the different points of view. My husband and I are so grateful to be assigned to her to help us through this challenging period in our lives.

Dr. Diai really understands me and my husband and has been so helpful in facilitating better communication and deeper understanding. We don't make it easy! But she is patient and gets all the cultural and interpersonal underlying issues.

I have being in therapy with Dr. Diai for a month and she is amazing! She really helps you and understand you.
She is very professional and has the knowledge to reach you. I feel very comfortable talking to her. I will say, I had therapists in the past but no one like her! She answers all my messages and she is there for me when I need her. She also has a great heart and a lot of charisma. I really appreciate her as my therapist! As a psychologist she is amazing I highly recommend her.
Martha.
