I care deeply about the couples I work with. I bring myself fully to every session, intending to be as real, human, and honest, as I can be. I encourage partners to show up similarly, to the extent possible, in couples therapy, in their relationships, and in life.


Diana Calvo (she/her) specializes in working with couples in crisis. She has experience working with relationships characterized by:

  • abuse, addiction, affairs, and chronic illness

  • poor communication, conflict, and little to no physical or emotional intimacy

  • past trauma that is largely unaddressed

  • serious consideration of separation, divorce, or ending

She has studied a variety of therapeutic modalities for working with couples, including Psychobiological Approach to Couples Therapy (PACT), Gottman, Imago, DBT, and The Development Model from the Couples Institute. She is trained in Somatic Experiencing, a therapeutic modality used to process and release trauma energy from the body.

Diana's theoretical orientation to understanding the human experience is largely shaped by her study of family systems theory, attachment theory, and social justice theory. Her therapeutic approach is heavily influenced by her study of Contemplative Psychotherapy and Buddhist Psychology. Additionally, Diana studies Buddhist teachings and has a regular meditation practice.

Diana identifies as white, heterosexual, monogamous, and a cisgender woman. She can support interested clients to explore how identity, social location, power, and systems impact both their individual experience and their relationship. She has experience working with partners who identify as persons of color, queer, trans, non-binary, gay, lesbian, polyamorous, immigrant, and other marginalized identities.

Being a couples therapist is Diana’s second career. Previously, she worked in management consulting for 20 years in New York City. Her hobbies include easy cooking, coffee, and tending to a handful of indoor plants. She is divorced and in a committed non-married partnership.
