I welcome you to my Therapy and Wellness Services site. I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT #96808) working in private practice in the beautiful city of Newport Beach, California. I possess a Master of Science degree in Counseling with an Emphasis in Marriage and Family Therapy from the California State University, Los Angeles and a Bachelor of Arts degree in Linguistics and Psychology from the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA).
I have a deep love for helping people through the unlimited possibilities of human connection. My work focuses on helping people through guiding them in finding their own answers. I believe that everyone has this ability and the potential to meet their goals to ultimately achieve happiness and wholeness. I use my interpersonal, theoretical, and applied skills to build conducive connections with individuals, couples, and families. My areas of focus are working with mood and anxiety conditions, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), grief, self-esteem issues, relationship difficulties, personal growth and life goals, working through mental “blocks”, career ambivalence, and life transitions.
Moreover, I have extensive experience with evidence-based practices such as Cognitive Behavioral approaches (CBT, TF-CBT, REBT), Solution-Focused Brief Therapy, and Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA). Along with my professional experience, my ability to be genuine, empathic, open-minded, and culturally sensitive allows me to make meaningful connections.
Aside of what I do as my career of choice, I enjoy hanging out with friends and family. I also tend to be a mover and enjoy relaxing walks, stretching exercises, and an unstructured combination of weight lifting and some cardio.
Looking forward to helping you on your journey!
Diana Duran, LMFT
